Yeah it was good. I liked listening to the people in the donut shop the best, and how Roy responded. Great guy.

I hate how Pacers.com videos don't work for me.. they skip really bad and don't load fast enough. I'll have to wait to watch it until they put it on youtube.

I like how he has a sense of humor about him fouling out in five minutes. Also, was funny when the one guy asked if he was a basketball player and he said yeah I play a little.....for the Pacers.

I would like to see a lot more videos like this OF ALL THE PLAYERS! My girlfriend is forced to watch Pacers with me and I show her these videos. She actually enjoys watching Pacers because of these videos, she likes Troy Murphy because of the video where he talks about spray tanning.

DEAR PACERS MARKETINGS FIRMS , MORE VIDEOS = CASUAL FANS BECOMING REAL FANS!

Call me a casual fan, but there's no way I'm going to sit and watch anybody getting a haircut. Not even a fellow Hoya.

the haircut scene is only about 10 seconds max .. lol

but it is a good video showing how down to earth Roy is , and his sense of humor ..

As a fan , it , as well as all his videos are "must watch" .. heh jmho


I for one, enjoy seeing these videos from the Pacers organization on our guys ..

Things like this , go a long way , in getting to really know our guys on a more personal level .. (about as much as a fan could hope anyways)

I finally got the video to work.. it's crazy that he goes to longs. Me and my mom and my friend used to go there all the time.. I thought if he was going to get donuts it would be at dunkin donuts or something, not a casual place like longs.

Roy does a better job of selling stuff with that book while driving than Bobby Knight ever did with just one thing to do.

I love that video. I actually laughed out loud when he talked about getting a hair cut so he could look good as he was getting fouls.

ya ,I think it is cool that he addressed it publicly, and I am glad he is taking it in stride (in regards to his rookie fouling mistakes) ..

It shows he not only RECOGNIZES he needs to work on improving it , but that he has a good sense of humor ..

David Falk is Roy's agent. Sweet Jesus. Let's just say I hope Roy fully blossoms after we re-sign him in a few years.....

Anyway, I found that sweet and heartwarming.

Why do you always put those weired dots in your post?

Well when in the middle of a post, it separates thoughts usually.
Kinda like a pause, if you will ...

And when at the end of a post... Because it separates the last line from the sig, so it isn't crowded together ..


I mean I know proper punctuation, it's just a habit I guess.

That's a curious comment. Just about anybody in Indianapolis would recommend Long's over Dunkin Donuts. One of the faults that out-of-towners find in Indianapolis is the plethora of chain stores and restaurants and a corresponding lack of locally owned and operated shops. Indianapolis Monthly took note of that in this issue from a few months ago:

Anyway, thanks to you all for commenting about the part of the video I didn't watch. You're better than I am.

Isn't Long's out in Brightwood? Yikes. Surprised we didn't see at least one jack move in that video.

Roy is going to become a huge fan favorite. Somebody is doing a great job of handling this guy. He also has impeccable taste in donuts.

Roy is going to become a huge fan favorite.

He already is for some.

Episode 2 is awesome. Roy is becoming a decent (will be going on to great) player, but that's no surprise. After all, he does "play a little basketball".
Why did Roy go to the barber? His hair was .1 inch

Long's Donuts is the best in Indiana. Second place is Hilligoss Bakery in Brownsburg. Roy is smart.

Well , speaking from experience , even having short hair .. if you don't keep it trimmed weekly , it starts getting out of hand , especially if you have coarse hair like I do , and that of most african-americans ..

My hair , if I don't keep it trimmed weekly , develops into brillo-pad status ..lol

Plus you gotta realize these guys always have to look their best in a profession , where they are in the public's eye 24/7 and on television ..

New look for Roy Hillert?

Roy's a great guy, no doubt about that. And I'm really enjoying watching these vids (though, as a New Media major, I could do a better editing job :whistle:).

Anyway, I really hope Roy works out, because he has the tools and is a very likable person.

Oh, and Long's is awesome. :drool:
