IC Cold Links: Pacers have their first pre-draft workout

It's official, the Miami HEAT and the Dallas Mavericks are in the NBA finals. After the start of the year, it didn't look like the HEAT had enough outside of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. However, they pulled it together and are in the NBA finals in year one of the "Big 3". I am rooting strongly for Coach Rick Carlisle and the Dallas Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki has looked great this post season and deserves to get another shot at the NBA championship and coincidentally, he will face the HEAT again. Nowitzki has gotten the same pre-championship Peyton Manning label..."great player, but no ring". I don't always agree with Mark Cuban's strategies, but he has put together another solid team and I hope to see Nowitzki shake the label.

Outside the two teams still playing, the Indiana Pacers are prepping for this year's NBA draft. They had their first workout, without a head coach in place. JuJuan Johnson was the headliner and seems to be putting nothing but positive thoughts into scouts heads as he answers questions about his strength. Check out the interviews on the links below for further breakdown of players.
