I was told from unidentified source within the Pacers organization that the teams 3rd jersey will be a retro jersey but just not clear from which era. Him and I were talking jerseys and I asked him if the team was getting new jerseys next year, he said no but told me they were adding a throwback alternate jersey.

Suhweeeeeet. Finally. Hopefully they're the FloJos or the pinstripes. The OLD old retros wouldn't be bad either.

Now all they have to do is change the current jerseys.. It's time to change them. They're too, eh, generic.

For some reason I really like that uniform as well - I think its the color blue that was used. Unless there is a slight variation that I am not recognizing, that uniform was used throughout the late 80's as well. Ironically enough, Reggie wore it during his rookie season and ended up wearing it later in his career as one of the Pacers recent retro uniforms. You know, back in the David Harrison era.

Watch, the yellow alternates will get replaced by the yellow pinstripes

I take it no more banana suits?

That explains why they were only worn twice this year.

A FloJo tweeked with our modern "Indiana Pacers" font would look really cool.

I like our main home and away jerseys so I'm glad those are staying the same.

If we're going with blue road ones, it would say Indiana with that font style.

Davey and I will accept nothing less than the Home FloJo. Anything else is a poor attempt.

AM I RIGHT?

I did, however buy this at Home Court this month.

I do like the '97-'05 uniforms, but pinstripes should stay where they belong...in baseball.

When I think pinstripes, I always think about home teams in baseball.

The Magic and Bobcats' uniforms would look a lot better and little less detailed for a uniform if they didn't have the pinstripes.

They're good uniforms, but the pinstripes add a little too much.

I'll admit, the Hornets jerseys look pretty good with pinstripes.

Here's a blog by Conrad Brunner regarding what we will be wearing in the postseason. Doesn't say anything as far as jerseys.

http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/blog_brunner.html


So by now you've read, heard and talked all about Derrick Rose, Chicago's airtight defense, the threat of Carlos Boozer, etc., etc.

But there's a reason you turn to The Official Website for your Pacers news and information, and that's because experienced, intrepid journalists have the foresight and perspective to identify and attack the truly important issues.

Such as:

What are the Pacers going to wear in Chicago?

You may remember, back in the day when the playoffs were a given, the players routinely made some sort of outward gesture of unity. The most memorable, of course, came when they shaved their heads en masse.

For Reggie Miller, Mark Jackson and Dale Davis, this was no big deal. But for guys like Rik Smits, who with a hairless dome looked something like a 7-foot-4 stick of roll-on deodorant, it was a major example of taking one for the team.

More common was the decision to wear black shoes and socks, which didn't exactly complement the blue-and-gold pinstripes but I guess that was the point.

So as these young Pacers embark upon their first playoff run in five years, what do they have in store for us?

They aren't telling.

"I don't know yet," said Danny Granger. "We're thinking about it but I'm not positive. We might do black shoes, black socks. The shaved-heads idea came up but I don't know how Jeff Foster would look with a shaved head and Mike Dunleavy didn't want to cut his golden locks.

"I don't know how that's going to turn out but we might do something."

You may have noticed several blue headbands scattered throughout the lineup in the regular-season finale Wednesday in Orlando. That might've been foreshadowing.

I kind of like the black shoes and socks idea. That's a callback to the Pacers' decade of dominance in the '90s. But if these guys want to blaze their own trail -- although the blue headbands lacked panache -- more power to them.

In the playoffs, there are many ways to make a statement.

Speaking of which, there hasn't been what you'd call a controversy about Granger's comments last week about the Pacers preferring the Bulls to the Celtics (when the matchups were not yet set) but a local columnist took him to task and a prominent Chicago sportswriter asked Thursday if he would either retract the statement or apologize for giving the Bulls bulletin-board material.

"I don't believe in the bulletin board," he said. "If you're a team in the NBA that's got to get up for the playoffs, you don't need bulletin-board material, especially a team like Chicago. They're the No. 1 seed, eyes on a championship, they should be ready to play."

So he doesn't take it back?

"No," Granger said. "It's the honest truth."

That's the best kind.

There are many reasons to be glad Mike Dunleavy has finally reached the postseason but on a purely selfish level, I am happy to have someone so utterly quotable around.

Consider Thursday, when Dunleavy was asked Standard Pacers Playoff Question No. 1, about how they might try to combat their near-total lack of playoff experience.

"Jeff Foster has loved to talk about it and tell all the playoff war stories," Dunleavy said with a wry grin. "I told him, 'Hey, man, it's been four or five years since you've been there. Back then they wore low-top Converses and played with a red, white and blue ball so you may have a few things to figure out yourself.' "

Think of how much fun this has been already, and the games haven't yet begun.

Champion was the official outfitter for the team until 1999, then Puma took the reigns through 2001. 2002-06 Reebok, then when Adidas AG bought Reebok that's when Adidas' name was plastered over everything.

Should just go back to the FloJos.

That could be really cool. The Warriors and Jazz have pioneered going full-time retro, so it's not as wild of an idea as it used to be, which makes it more likely (IMO) to actually happen (well, maybe).

I'd dig that.

The Flo-Jo's really are some of the best uniforms in NBA history. There's no reason to change something that's great, and we should have kept them all these years.

I have a feeling the Pacers will use the Clark Kellogg era jerseys since they are yellow and it seems the, "road golds" have fallen from favor. Then again, the 80's are in. How much longer can these uniforms be cool?
