    Ahhh yes, therein lies the rub. In the great cycle of things, the Pacers are on the uphill getting better phase, while the Pistons have started their slide. So even if we beat them in the playoffs this year, they won't be "as good" as they used to be. And if we don't even get to meet them in the playoffs, well then they still get to say we never beat them.

    Reminds me of when we finally got over the Knicks hump. After that series, patrick said "We're still the better team." There's no getting around it. This is a rivalry NOW and it'll be a rivalry for the rest of this year, maybe next, because even beating them won't make it go away. One team has to fade enough to not be a threat to the other.

    I just stumbled across this and wondered what you guys think of it now that Ron is gone and the Pacers beating them Saturday.

    Greetings Pacer Addicts,

    In my view, Kstat and Jaydawg have nailed this one. When one team dominates, the rivalry (to the extent one exists) is mundane. And even if the Pacers were to win a series against Detroit to spice things up, this is still a long, long way from Indiana-New York in the '90's.

    Depends on who you ask. I think most non-pacer fans will not consider it a real one since we haven't beaten them when it counts so to speak.

    Some Pacer fans will lay it all on the pistons during 11/9 but I assume those people will be in the minority.

    Personally for me it'll be like the yankees/red sox. I won't view it as one until the Pacers beat them at least once in the playoffs.

    What happened on 11/9?

    You know, now that you mention it I can't remember.. I'm seriously lost here. I probably need a drink, let me just get a cup.

    kind of like Federer-Roddick rivalry, fun to watch and they both get up for the matches, but in the end Federer thus far is just plain superior. We'll have to see where we go from here, but it's no Knicks rivalry just yet.

    Uh... the Cavs had homecourt and (I think) the best regular season record one season, and were winning at home in Game #5 up to the last possession and a very, very famous shot.

    I'd venture to say the Cavs were the better *team* that season, but that guy for the Bulls was more 'clutch', and then he hit a shot that, combined with Brad Daugherty's injury problems, was something that franchise never recovered from.

    True, the Cavs were a better team that season, but the Bulls were better in the playoffs.

    Didn't hurt that they had #23, though.

    If my memory serves correctly, didn't we kill a witch to accomplish that goal?
    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....

    We gotta get Kid Rock to get up and yell something at JO during a game. Then we may have something.

    I recall reading that Kid Rock tried to involve himself in the Brawl, but whoever he was sitting with stopped him (I think it was a football player or some athelete but I'm not sure). Can you image? Just another layer of hoopla over that mess.

    It only becomes a real great rivalry if the Pacers can knock us out of the playoffs.

    I totally agree. If the Pacers can some how supplant the Pistons, it will be a full-fledged rivalry.

    Until then it just makes the games a little more exciting.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
