I've tried looking for some online. I have read pretty much anything I can get my hands on about the ABA/Pacers, but beyond just seeing clips here or there I have never actually seen a Pacers ABA game. Does anyone know of a place I could find at least just one game, especially one with McGinnis, Brown, Daniels, Netolicky in the lineup?

I really just love history and learning, but when you can actually watch their play it speaks volumes over just reading about it.

there's a pacers/colonels finals game on NBA TV that plays about once every 2 or 3 months...

Yeah I posted that on my blog before, I've seriously read over 90% of that site. I don't think there are game on there though, unless I've just been missing something.

It's going to be very hard to get video footage, especially full games since home video wasn't around back then.

The Pacers front office may have these stashed somewhere, but I highly doubt they will let them out, or have a clue where they are.

Yeah, and I've sort of figured that was the case, but I thought if any group of people would know the answer to that question it would be here.

the next time I see it on NBA TV, i'll see if I can't record it any send out DVDs. I got enough requests last time.

That would be awesome.

There are 3 parts so far and the poster said he is adding more. Every big name is in this video. Donnie Freeman starts. Dr. J (rookie) plays some. Chamberlain,Havlicek, Big O and others. On the bench Mel Daniels so far in part 3. Erving looks good in this.

Thanks! That's a great find. I just wish it was the direct video instead of him taping his TV, but beggars can't be choosers. I still hope I can find a Pacers game.

Also I've always noticed this from watching old footage, does it seem like players used to put more arc on their shots in the past?
