    Also, is Kombucha a thing in Indiana?

    Yep. Definitely an acquired taste. You have to find the flavor that appeals to you.

    I had never heard of La Croix before this.

    Kombucha starting getting big about 12-15 years ago in Colorado. It's huge here, we even have kegs on tap in grocery stores. It's basically fermented tea loaded with probiotics. Super skinny people drink it daily for what that's worth but it's another trend I'm not a fan of.

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    We had it in Indiana when I lived there but it came in glass back then. You can't go in any grocery store here without being greeted by a big pallet display in the lobby but it's been in cans for several years now.

    Wilt was skinny as ****. I think Shaq would have just muscled him around. Wilt vs Olajuwon--that would be a really fun one.
    Wilt was incredibly strong. I feel quite confident that he would have handled Shaq. We'll never know.

    Have another one:

    If we don't sign a couple training camp stand outs, I wouldn't mind bringing back Dunleavy on a 1 year deal for shooting and a vet that can fill in at the 2 or 3.

    La croix is healthy. It's basically just carbonated water with some very light natural flavoring like lime juice. I have a soda stream at home and I make fizzy water all the time and drink it by itself, it's refreshing. Been popular in europe for a long time.
    Yeah, that's how I encountered it. My buddy and his wife decided to clean up their diet so started using La Croix for mixed drinks with Tito's.

    I don't know how unpopular this opinion is, but to me Wilt is the most interesting man in NBA history.

    I think for the most part the new Nike jerseys are a bit 'meh'.

    Most of them follow more or less the same design outline, just different colours depending on each team's colours.

    Change is neither good or bad, it simply is.

    Also, did you know Marcus Pollard played basketball at Bradley?
    If you haven't heard yet, Oliver Miller averaged 2.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.9 minutes during seven preseason games with the blue and gold.

    Wilt was longer. He'd have more luck guarding Shaq than vice versa. I think those two plus Dream are all incredible, and all of them may be more "talented" than my first choice.
    Russell was just as tough as a tree root. Versatile, dominant defensively, and you don't have to build your offence around him to be successful. He's a great part of the offense but allows easy coordination with the rest of your talent. If I could pick one guy and a bunch of scrubs I'd probably go with Dream. If I could assume I'll have another choice of a strong player or two Ill take Bill every time.

    I like Joe Young. I think he can really play. I'd be interested to see him get a real shot at the backup pg spot. Sure, he has to improve his defense and turnover rate, but his offensive ability and potential are really sweet. Pity that he only got garbage time last year when he actually got some good minutes here and there his rookie year.

    Also, I think a lot of people undervalue Thad Young. There was a combination of things that led to the big losing skid last season. Teague seemed uninterested and his defense was crap, Paul George felt like he had to play "hero ball", Turner had a shooting slump, but I think the biggest part of the problem was missing Thad due to his injury, and his broken shot because of the wrist. When Thad regained his normal form and we got Lance back, the team played well again. I would not trade Thad this season unless the trade is just too good to pass up.

    I think these opinions are unpopular because I keep seeing posts about wanting to trade or get rid of Buckets and posts about trading Thad. We really shouldn't do either.

    I think Slick Leonard is an awful analyst for the Pacers radio network. I understand why he has the job (he's a Pacer legend, and the audience is 98% Pacer fans), but I just don't think he's very good.

    Mark Boyle is excellent, but that's not an unpopular opinion.

    Slick and Quinn are kind of the same, Indiana legends that aren't particularly great at the job they're supposed to do but you get why they're there. Denari and Boyle are pretty good though so that makes up for it...the team could have Bulls like announcers so it could be a lot worse.

    On the unpopular opinion and broadcaster theme: Bill Walton is one of my all time faves, I think Reggie is great, and I even like Dicky V in small doses.

    I have a visceral, heated dislike for Quinn Buckner's broadcasting. He is arrogant, pompous, over-analytical, paranoid, entitled, not very smart despite his basketball resume, and tries too hard (unsuccessfully) to be humorous and cool. If I have the chance, I watch another broadcast. Every once in a while I come back to the Pacer broadcast, only to switch back after two minutes. It only takes that long.

    Denari is excellent.

    Now There's an unpopular opinion.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Wow, I've always liked Quinn. He's better than most broadcasters IMO. Most sound kind of generic and cheesy, quinn actually has personality. He's fun.

    Agreed, I don't like real sugary stuff and Kombucha hits the spot because of that!

    I do agree I don't really think HOF with Reggie. Very Good Player,Great Pacer, Nemesis of Spike Lee? Sure. Its one of the cases where its more for his fame than his skill(similar to Dungy being in the HOF) he was the 1st black coach to win an SB while notable I don't think he's an HOF coach a very good coach yes.

    But Ray Allen was a better version of him and I can't stand Ray Allen.
