I felt this was significant considering how many years we've spent previously discussing the chemistry of the team. I'm thrilled that this is where it currently stands.
Speaking with the past half-decade or more in my mind, IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
I got another text message from the same person that sent me a message the other night in Denver.
"You can tell the chemistry on the Pacers is so much better this season," he wrote in part of the message.
I've told a number of people this, including Pacers PR man David Benner as we sat next to each other Wednesday, this is the best locker room I've had the opportunity to cover since I've been in Indiana and second overall (2003-04 Timberwolves were great).
There's no jealousy or any cliques on the team. There's no finger pointing. I don't walk in the locker room and feel like there's any tension between players as in years past.
The chemistry should get even better now that Mike Dunleavy is back.
