I come once again riding on the back of a valiant steed wearing my blue & gold face paint, before you the masses of Pacer fans and the throngs of the savages from Believeland (or as we like to call it the mistake by the lake)
Today we set all of our divisions aside. Whether liked the coaching change or whether you hated it. Whether you think Paul George is a prima dona or the MVP of the league. Whether you feel that Lance returning to the team was the only saving grace or it was the last sign of the coming apocalypse. Now is the time to come together.
Today we once again rise up to face a giant of a player and a giant of a team. Make no mistake, no matter their record, no matter how vulnerable they may seem, they are the defending NBA champions and they have not lost anyone of significance from the team that beat the team that was supposed to be the best team of all time. In fact they have added another old Pacers nemesis in Kyle Korver.
Nobody is even giving us a whiff of a chance. Oh sure we are going to get the "Paul George is on a mission" pr pieces the NBA is going to put out so at least it looks like the Cavaliers have to worry about something. But make no mistake when that ball goes up in the air our beloved blue and gold will not only be facing 5 Cavaliers, 3 referees, the city of Cleveland and the rest of the NBA watching world. Because not only is nobody really pulling for us but us (well that and maybe teams and their fans who don't want to have to face the Cavs) but most NBA fans want LeBron to advance. They want that 3rd time for all the marbles between the Cavs and the pretty boy Warriors.
Well I say screw them all.
It's time to shock the world, its time to be the fly in the ointment. It's time for Paul to take that next step its time for Myles to get introduced to the world and its once again time for Lance to be that player LeBron loves to hate.
Rise up fellow Pacer fans, let the world know that we are not just happy to be here.
Who's with me?
Let me see your war face!!!!!!!
