    "She reportedly wants Melo to contribute financially" you think?

    We had Frank Vogel, a young passionate guy like Fizdale with lots of behind the scenes and assistant experience. Worked out very well for us, but we just ran into the player of our generation repeatedly.

    We got rid of Vogel, and could (should) have tried to go get another guy like him, Fizdale being a good example.

    Nope --- Let's promote our Lead Assistant whose last HC job was about a decade ago and was always a .500 coach. And look at the results.

    Yipee!

    How much did TV Tony Romo assist Mavericks ratings? A lot

    Turns out the on-vacation Mavericks really got a boost from TV Tony Romo. The CBS NFL analyst, who dressed up in a home team uniform for the season finale at American Airlines Center, helped earn the Mavericks a 1.8 rating on KTXA (Channel 21) for the loss to the Denver Nuggets.
    Before you hold your nose at the 1.8 know this: It was the Mavericks' third-highest TV rating of the season. The very next night for the season-ending victory at Memphis, they scored half that rating, a 0.9 on Channel 21, which also happened to match the six-game season average on the station.

    As you might expect, the Mavericks' runaway ratings winner this season came March 7 against the Los Angeles Lakers when Dirk Nowitzki reached the 30,000 career points plateau. The game scored a 2.6 for Fox Sports Southwest. Once upon a time not too long ago, that was just about an average rating for a Mavericks game.
    Keep in mind that each rating point represents 27,134 homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth market.
    No. 2 for this faded season was the Feb. 1 game against the Philadelphia 76ers, which earned a 1.9. That happened to be the team's third straight victory in the midst of a 6-1 run.
    And now for more cloudy Mavericks TV news: They also averaged a 0.9 for 74 games on Fox Sports Southwest.
    Last season, they averaged a 1.6.
    That was down from 2.5 in 2014-15.
    In 2010-2011, their NBA championship season, they averaged a 2.4 during the regular season.
    Add the Tony Rome game: Most unusual about ratings for the game was that they peaked in the first half hour. Essentially most folks tuned in to check out the scene. The game opened with a 2.8 rating during the first 30 minutes and dropped to a 1.5 for the final 30 minutes.

    By: Alex Kennedy | April 19, 2017

    When Jeff Teague found out he was being traded from the Atlanta Hawks to the Indiana Pacers last June, the Indianapolis native couldn’t contain his excitement. When he got the news, he and his brother, Marquis, celebrated.

    “We just got hyped,” Teague told me last summer. “We started laughing and cheering and stuff. It was good news.”

    Teague lived in Indianapolis all the way through high school and then decided to attend Wake Forest University. Ten years after he left, he returned as a former first-round pick and NBA All-Star. Nearly one year after the three-team trade, Teague is still enjoying his homecoming.

    “It’s been easy for me because I love being home and I love Indianapolis,” Teague said last week. “The fans have always been great to me and the city has always embraced me. I like being close to my family most of the time and having everybody at the games, and I enjoy being around Indianapolis throughout the whole year. It’s been cool.”

    This season, Teague emerged as one of the Pacers’ most important players. The 28-year-old averaged 15.3 points, 7.8 assists, 4 rebounds and 1.2 steals, while shooting 44.2 percent from the field, 35.7 percent from three-point range and 86.7 percent from the free-throw line. Teague was also incredibly durable, becoming one of only five players in the NBA to start all 82 games this season.

    It took some time for Teague to get acclimated and learn his new teammates’ tendencies, but he still managed to finish the season as one of the top facilitators in the league. He ranked seventh in assists per game (7.8), seventh in secondary assists (1.5), seventh in potential assists (15.4), seventh in points created by assists (18.1) and ninth in assist percentage (36.4 percent).

    “The first month of the season was pretty rough,” Teague said. “I was adjusting to a new team, a new everything, but we got better as a group as the season went on. It was tough, but I’m pretty locked in now. I know where guys are comfortable on the floor and what guys can do. It took a while – there are so many talented guys on this team – but now we’re comfortable.”

    After the Pacers struggled a bit earlier this season, Teague cited a team meeting as the main reason for Indiana’s turnaround and his decision to take on more of a distributor role.

    “We had a meeting where we talked about sacrifices,” Teague said. “Everybody wants to score. I had a meeting with some of the coaches and they said, ‘You have to sacrifice, Paul [George] has to sacrifice, everybody has to sacrifice something because we have a really talented group.’ I didn’t need to go try to score more points, I needed to be a facilitator – getting guys open and getting guys easy shots. Once I figured that out, I think we started playing a little better.”

    The revitalized Pacers won 42 games and secured the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. After the All-Star break, George stepped up in a big way and averaged 26.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.7 steals while shooting 49 percent from the field and 41 percent from three.

    “He’s a talent; he’s one of the most special players in the NBA,” Teague said of George. “It took a minute for us to get to know each other on the floor, but once we started to jell, I could see how easy the game is for him and how easy he makes things for everyone around him. He can score in bunches and score in every way. He makes my job so much easier. I just try to push the ball, and give him the ball where he’s comfortable. And people never leave him, so I get easy drives to the lane and things like that. He’s playing great right now.”

    The Cleveland Cavaliers currently lead the Pacers, 2-0, in their first-round series. With that said, Indiana stuck around in both games – missing a potential game-winner in the first contest and losing the second game by just six points.

    George is averaging 30.5 points, 7 assists, 6.5 rebounds and 1 steal, while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from three. Teague is averaging 19 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field, 50 percent from three and 100 percent from the free-throw line.

    It’s clear that Cleveland has some issues they’re still working through and Indiana will be a tough out, especially as the series shifts to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    “We have to play with an edge defensively, get out and run, and keep playing hungry,” Teague said. “That’s what we did to close the season [with five straight wins]. We still have a chance to shock the world.”
    There's been some discussion on whether or not Teague likes being home, and it would appear so from the comments in this article. He's a top-10 offensive point guard by those stats, I just wish he brought anything on defense right now. Still though, unless we're going after a clear upgrade in talent that will really move the needle, I hope he stays. Maybe he likes Indy enough to agree to a little less (but I won't hold my breath).

    Also, PG's numbers in this series are insane.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    Open relationships work IF neither partner gets pregnant or gets someone else pregnant. I think that's the golden rule. Sounds like Melo didn't wrap it up or pull out in time. He failed to hold up his end of the bargain.

    No. He plays hard. That's it.
