IC Cold Links: Pacers Draft Reactions, RIP Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett

Wow, yesterday was absolutely nuts. Not only was the draft crazy, but we lost Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson, two icons who accompanied me as I came of age through the '80's. At different points in my life, every girl tried to copy Farrah's hair style, then later every guy tried to copy the moon walk. And when I say "every" I mean, EVERY gal and EVERY guy were following the trends these two icons unleashed. RIP, Jacko and Farrah.

Now, after a night's sleep and digesting all of the knee-jerk reactions from the draft, I'm having a hard time picking out any player after the 13th pick I would be overly excited about had the Pacers taken him instead of Hansbrough. That says more about the draft than Hansbrough, but now we're just left to let the big Missourian "show us" what he can do. I guess that begins in a couple of weeks with summer league, when Hansbrough joins Roy Hibbert and Brandon Rush on the court in Orlando.
