    Totally agree on bacon. People act like it's the greatest food ever, but hello burgers, pizza, tacos, chocolate?!? All way better
    Bacon cheeseburger.
    Bacon on pizza.
    Bacon tacos.
    Chocolate covered bacon.
    I've even made bacon-chocolate chip cookies.

    We should have found a way to retain the draft rights to Vonteego Cummings...

    The franchise had a brilliant pg in Tinsley. They are to blame for not providing him the correct environment to thrive after his rookie season.
    Yay, we don't know what we're doing as a franchise! thanks PG!

    I agree with bacon...it's alright but I'd much rather have a nice juicy burger (without bacon on it) or steak, hell even for breakfast I'd prefer sausage to bacon.
    Thank you!! Sausage and, might I add, ham are both better options. I don't mind bacon on things like burgers and other sandwiches, but as a breakfast side, it's the third best option at best.

    Man, it really must be the middle of the summer...

    I remember watching teams pressing him and shaking my head. Ridiculous ball-handler.

    I cannot stand it that Lance is a member of the Pacers team. The fact that he is the last player standing from the ECF teams really burns me up. He is going to make it very hard for me to watch this season. His game IMO is all flash, no substance and I believe he has many Pacers fans fooled into thinking he is the savior of God knows what.
    It makes me very nervous to have a Lance with high usage rates next year. I don't think he'll still be on the team at the end of the season.

    Sabonis will be looked at as the centerpiece of this trade by the 2018-19 season, with flashes of that next year.

    GR3 will start more games than Bojan.

    I cannot understand why that's unpopular. But it is. Lance Stephenson should be the starting PG, playing roughly 40 minutes with a mix of Dipo, CoJo, DC, GRIII and Bojan accepting dishes from him.
    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

    My counter:

    By the end of this coming year, Myles Turner will be in the conversation for best Center in the league after Anthony Davis and Karl Anthony Towns (lumped in the same category-level as Cousins, Gobert, Embiid and Jokic - above the Gasols, Horford, Deandre, Whiteside, Porzingis, etc.)

    By the end of this coming year, Dipo will be considered a roughly average sg in the league (i.e. around 15th best at a pretty weak position overall)
    I think this rating system is out of whack. Gasol is very much in the conversation for best center in the NBA. Towns is a bad defender, which doesn't make much sense to me. And AD can't get his team over 34 wins, so it's really tough for me to view him as hands-down the best center in the NBA, although he probably is.
    I think a healthy Embiid might be a top 5 player in a year or two.

    Tinsley is the most talented Pacers PG in history. I recall when called upon he could put up more than 20 anytime he wanted. The issue with Jamaal was between his ears. Messed up. But the talent was ridiculous.

    The current NBA and it's obsession with the 3pt line and metrics has made for really boring basketball. They should bring back hand checking, extend the 3pt line, and ban zone defenses.
    No way they should ban zone defense imo (I know it's your unpopular opinion). I share the sentiment that the game is very boring for me right now though. I like strategy, beat people how you can. I like hack-a-whoever can't shoot a free throw, etc. It's part of the game. Hand checking should be allowed I think, and I agree about the 3pt shot being moved back a bit perhaps.
    I can't relate the the product right now, but I understand trends come and go, so I'm trying to ride this wave out.

    The NBA should do away with free agency. If people want to change teams, they sit out a year and are drafted into a lottery involving the worst 10 teams in the league.

    PG was probably the most talented NBA Pacer every, and the reason the team was stuck in mediocrity.

    NBA Refs are the worst officials of all the major sports

    The NBA season should be cut down to 51 games (4 against division 2 home and 2 away, 2 against conference home and away, 1 against the other conference alternate each year)

    Playoff games should never have more than one night off between games

    I don't think there's ever been a rookie here who was more exciting, as good & had more promise than Jamaal Tinsley his rookie year here.

    Kev Pritchard opted to trade for Oladipo over Harris because Oladipo played for IU.

    Because it isn't unpopular. It is quite popular, but it is just as popular to not want Lance to be the starting PG.

    Along these lines. Quiznos has the best subs by a large margin.

    Really upset they changed over their entire menu. The fiesta soup + nachos were a work lunch mainstay

    Well, that's YOUR opinion. I've felt that he was smoke & mirrors for the last 5, 6 years ..... Not an iota of betrayal. Just a lot of relief. Would have put the Pacers in cap hell for the duration of his contract.
    What? 5, 6 years? How long do you think he's been in the NBA. How old do you think he is?
