    That's easy.

    Hannah Storm's (NBC Showtime, now CBS This Morning) father.

    Okay, there are at least two other correct answers.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Dang...thought I'd get you on the Hanna STORMs part...

    but Jay is absolutely right, there ARE at least two more correct replys. (and possibly a third)

    Not the founder, may have been involved but not the founder. Somebody pull the book please, I don't think he was our 1st GM. Certainly one of the earliest, but I don't think the 1st.
    What I was going for have all been mentioned
    1) Early (1st?) pacer GM
    2) ABA COmmisioner
    3) Father of Hanna Storm

    I'll expand the question a bit.

    What noted player was drafted and signed by the Pacers causing the older NBA to question the legality of his signing. Who ws the player and what spurred the questioning? (He was signed by Storen)

    Thanks SM, I was going strictly from memory and didn't anticipate the Founder comment. Dick Tinkham and TOm Binford are generally who are mentioned as founders. and now I've read your link and see the 1st GM reference. I know who I thought it wsa but I was obviously wrong there...bad memory.

    SO who was the player and what about his signing caused the Legal questioning.

    Not what I'm thinking of. Remember, I said the player was DRAFTED (out of college) and signed by the P's.

    (Hint...he came from a Big Ten school)

    George McGinnis? Because he was an underclassman?
