    Default First time ever seeing the Pacers Live

    Well let me say that it was my first time seeing a pro basketball game live. I am not a huge mavericks fan and I live in Dallas so that is the only team I would be able to see live and I have chosen not to in the past. However my fiance gave me tickets to go see the Pacers since I have been a fan for a while and since they only come to dallas once a season she gave me the tickets for an early bday present. Here are my impressions seeing them live....First Mike was not there mainly because his grandfather passed away a couple days ago and he was being with his family in Fort Worth. So i did not get to visit with him, but my prayers are with him and the family. Second Foster looks quicker in person than on TV which suprised me. Daniels looked really good live. He was hitting his shots fairly consistently and was very active driving to the basket. When Grangers jump shots are not falling he almost seems like he gets hesistant and confused on how to create. Last night when they needed a leader and someone in the clutch no one stepped up. The 12-2 run started when Nowitzki nailed that three pointer and yanked his shirt down and yelled and pumped his fist. It got his team going. I noticed that not one Pacer has the same effect on the team that Dirk has on the Mavs. Hibbert looked real slow. Rush looked great. His shot is coming around and he was very aggressive. Murphy relied solely on his jump shot. I know he is not a post player but he has to start addressing his presence. He spends so much time in the wieght room to bulk up how on earth is it going to help him if he starts out on the arc and drives every time. He needs to use his muscle to get the ball inside and draw fouls. Again I must say I enjoyed seeing the game I was about 20 rows behind the Mavs basket. It was cool to finally get to see a pro basketball game live. Just wanted to share my experiences and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Why not? I know I'm gonna make a trip to the US someday, and I'll make damn sure it 'll be during the NBA season. That's not a threat, it's a promise. To myself if you will.

    My brain can't handle so many small letters at once. It needs its blank lines in between....

    Aren't there trips to Europe by NBA teams in the preseason one could go to?

    Why, you don't want me coming to America?

    Preseason....that about says it for me. If I would happen to be in the neighbourhood I'd probably go, but I won't go out of my way to see a more or less meaningless game. Plus Pacers never play in Europe.

    i would make that promise to myself but it would be another one i can't keep. when you are an unemployed 24 year old guy with the worst luck in the history of mankind and no money you can't be optimistic about the future.

    I have the chance of having very good friends living in Brownsburg, a few miles from Indy
    I went there for the first time in the summer 2002 and have visited them every year then... I have a lot of great memories there but the best one must be the winter 2007! Usually I travel to Indiana in the summer which is great but a bit frustrating in terms of NBA since the season is over... Granted seeing the Fever ain't bad but it's not the same as an NBA game for someone who's been a fan since being a little kid. Still I remember the first time I entered Conseco was a huge feeling and emotion.

    Anyway I finally decided to postpone my visit to winter and did so in the first 2 weeks of February 2007... I will always remember two things: my first Pacers game as we beat Kobe and his Lakers with a huge crowd and of course the big superbowl party we had at my friend's place to see the Colts win it all...

    Ahhh good moments

    No, that's not necessary, though indents (when appropriate) would be nice.
