    Default Larry Bird Press Conference.....10:30-ish

    Just got a message from the Pacers Facebook Page, Larry to have a press conference in the next 20 minutes or so.

    Pacers.com will have it covered.

    I expect him to say who they are going to pick, what trade offers have been proposed and declined, and which of the expiring contracts will be re-signed. I will not be disappointed. I am sunshiner.

    He's gonna come up with a 10-player-trade and shocks the whole Pacers Nation.
    Thank you Jeff.

    Seems like he doesn't do this unless he's already made a trade. Too soon to say we aren't doing anything.

    Is it typical to give a press conference two days early?

    These conferences are so vague...they're literally pointless.

    All Bird is going to say is:

    "We looking at a couple of guys in the draft that we think will be great basketball players...we're also speaking to a few teams about moving around in the draft...we're keeping our options open at this opoint"

    Its the same vague stuff that he always says. Hes not going to come out and tell any details. I would love it if someone directly asks him about the Flynn situation

    You've hit the nail on the head. I would also like for him to discuss a little bit about a trade with the T-Wolves and maybe state what our "filler" would be in a trade for Flynn/16th/23rd.

    I can bet anything that he wont state what/who the filler was/is. If anything, Bird might say "we had some discussion with Minny..."

    Agreed. He doesn't want to tip his hand and end up ruining negotiations with some other team.

    What do you want him to say? What would make you happy? He cant be specific or it hurts whatever position he might have when it comes to dealing with other teams.

    If you want to know what I prefer, I think it would be better if he just cut out the leaking to Wells or anyone else completely and only comment when there's actual news to report.

    No trade is going to happen until Thursday (if ever). So I'm not sure what the point of this is.

    me and the rest of the world would love to actually get the information of what really is being talked about and what ideas/scenarios are true and which ones are false, but I guess we can all dream.

    I think probably all of the NBA teams do it. It builds some interest in the draft and is free and easy coverage for them. The Colts do it every year too before the NFL draft.

    It's like an unpaid ad, this presser. Wells/Kravitz will do an article trying to create a buzz among non-diehards. Nothing to see here.

    Only thing I would say is Bird is pretty plain spoken and we might get some insight into existing players, if the media asks the right questions.

    Like, not how is Tyler doing, but "what" is Tyler doing specifically? Is he under the supervision of a doctor, right now? Does it concern the team he's not been in town at all for months?

    Like, how is BRush's summer going, how often is he working out, where, and on what?

    Is Jeff doing contact drills yet?

    How many shots is McBob getting up a day, any updates?

    Any idea on who is attending summer league? (that guy that was part of the Spurs NBDL that was rumored to going to be signed at the end of the year?)

    Any thoughts of hiring a big man coach, like Keller is the shooting coach.

    I could go on.

    Pretty sure he has one of these every year around draft time. Last year he told us they were zoning in on a big, a wing and a couple of points iirc.

    From Michael Grady:

    Bird DID say that he talked to Minnesota about a potential trade but the deal on the table DID NOT involve the #10 pick.

    Just left Bird Presser. Nothing earth shattering. He is seeking trades, but if he keeps the pick, he'll get the best player available
