One of the best of all time
Just made the games a little bit better
No big deal
Won't be remembered at all
so pitty!Next time when we meet Pistons Reegie is out of court!
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.
The dirty Detriot fans ruining our damn season. Thats what it will be rememberd by.
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.
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.

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....
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.
lol at Kid Rock getting involved. It wouldnt be nice for his street cred if he steped up and get laid out by Jack or JO.
Not fondly.How will the Pacers Pistons rivalry remembered
