Danny Granger continues the Pacer tradition of trading banter with Spike Lee. Not sure which is funnier, Spike's expression or the fact the jersey he's wearing is a medium.

I've been remiss in mentioning the preseason schedule for the Indiana Pacers which has been out for awhile. Fortunately,Indy Sports Nation reminded me yesterday.

The preseason tips off at Memphis on Octobert 6th which is suddenly less than two months away. All three of the home games appear slated for Conseco Fieldhouse this year and include the Orlando Magic and New Orleans Hornets. So we get an extra, albeit limited visit from Chris Paul this year which ought to light a fire under Darren Collison to go against his old mates.

There's no word on the television schedule for the preseason or regular season yet.

Here is the full preseason schedule:

  • Wednesday Oct. 6 at Memphis 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday Oct. 8 vs. Orlando 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday Oct. 9 at Houston 7:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday Oct. 13 vs. Minnesota 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday Oct. 15 vs. New Orleans 7:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday Oct. 19 at Minnesota 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday Oct. 22 at Chicago 8:00 p.m.

After the jump, a few more links of interest including stories on Team USA as they prepare for a couple of games in Madrid, Spain, a chill shot of Danny Granger, plus videos of A.J. Price rehabbing and the Darren Collison and James Posey making themselves at home in the Fieldhouse.

One more thing, Mark Boyle's Wish Walk is in day four. After three days, Boyle has hoofed it 46.7 miles while consuming all of the best that Indiana small towns have to offer. Never thought I'd be jealous of a guy on a 500 mile walk. Check out his progress and donate to the cause.
