Sports Illustrated Top 100 rankings:

Why the national media still thinks Victor Oladipo’s season was a fluke.

Why that doesn’t make sense since he’s entering his prime.

Why he should definitely be ranked ahead of Karl Anthony-Towns and Nikola Jokic.

Pacers playing in the 2018 FIBA World Cup:

Why Cory Joseph’s performance shows he should be given the opportunity to play starting point guard someday.

Why Bojan Bogdanovic had a classic ‘Bogie’ game.

Why Ben Moore’s experience could be valuable to him cracking Indiana’s rotation.

Jimmy Butler to have ‘frank’ conversation with the Wolves:

Why Butler could be on the market before the trade deadline and what the Pacers would have to give up.

Why the Pacers might want to look at Andrew Wiggins next summer.
