    He's about 51 right now. I bet he could still score 10ppg.
    Lance is finally home. Whether he becomes our starting PG or he's 6th man, he's getting big minutes and he's here to stay. #llortontnia

    Never forget where I was 22 years ago today. I was 7-years-old watching the game @ my grandma's house with her & my mom. When they thought the game was over they both went outside & was working in the yard. I was watching the end of the game alone & when Reggie went off I ran outside screaming & yelling for them to come inside.

    Memories....Reggie provided a lot of those.

    22 years ago, a Pacer scored 8 points and won me my first Basketball Parlay bet.

    Thats one of those you remember like it was yesterday things, I just could not believe it when he stole the inbound then had the presence of mind to get behind the three point line. I think I said Holy **** about 1,000 times! I could not sit for about an hour afterwards either I was so amped up, I barely got any sleep that night.

    I can remember LMAO as the Knicks dejectedly slinked off the court.

    Thank you again Reggie for that thoroughly satisfying moment.

    I love the memory of Bill Walton looking like a dumb@ss.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    The greatest achievement ever accomplished in professional sports. Neither Michael Jordan nor Lebron James have came close to achieving this almost impossible feat.

    Not taking anything away from Reggie as it was vs a very very good NY team in the playoffs but this is also pretty good as well.

    To this day, they sit at home in agony over it.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
