The wait is over, friends! The NBA kicked off the season officially with a multitude of games on Christmas Day. Our hometown heroes, the Indiana Pacers began their season yesterday with a 91-79 victory over the Detroit Pistons,
This year looks to be an exciting one for the Pacers. Handcuffed for the last few years with outstanding contracts, the Pacers have enough room under the salary-cap to augment a team full of young talent.
Many NBA analysts have named the Pacers as a team to watch this year, after a very competitive showing in the playoffs last year. The signings of free-agents Naptowner George Hill and David West bolsters a strong front court as Roy Hibbert and Tyler Hansbrough continue to play at a high level and show progress.
Get ready to head to the newly-christened Banker’s Life Fieldhouse (formerly Conseco Fieldhouse) and root for the home team. Lots of folks have been waiting for a long time to say these two things… “The NBA is BACK!” and “The Pacers gotta SQUAD!”
