    i hate the current pacers jerseys. imo we went from one of, if not the best jersey in the league (pinstripes) to arguably the worst. hopefully we'll see a change sometime soon.
    I do like the '97-'05 uniforms, but pinstripes should stay where they belong...in baseball.

    When I think pinstripes, I always think about home teams in baseball.

    The Magic and Bobcats' uniforms would look a lot better and little less detailed for a uniform if they didn't have the pinstripes.

    They're good uniforms, but the pinstripes add a little too much.

    I'll admit, the Hornets jerseys look pretty good with pinstripes.

    Here's a blog by Conrad Brunner regarding what we will be wearing in the postseason. Doesn't say anything as far as jerseys.

    http://www.nba.com/pacers/news/blog_brunner.html

    So by now you've read, heard and talked all about Derrick Rose, Chicago's airtight defense, the threat of Carlos Boozer, etc., etc.

    But there's a reason you turn to The Official Website for your Pacers news and information, and that's because experienced, intrepid journalists have the foresight and perspective to identify and attack the truly important issues.

    Such as:

    What are the Pacers going to wear in Chicago?

    You may remember, back in the day when the playoffs were a given, the players routinely made some sort of outward gesture of unity. The most memorable, of course, came when they shaved their heads en masse.

    For Reggie Miller, Mark Jackson and Dale Davis, this was no big deal. But for guys like Rik Smits, who with a hairless dome looked something like a 7-foot-4 stick of roll-on deodorant, it was a major example of taking one for the team.

    More common was the decision to wear black shoes and socks, which didn't exactly complement the blue-and-gold pinstripes but I guess that was the point.

    So as these young Pacers embark upon their first playoff run in five years, what do they have in store for us?

    They aren't telling.

    "I don't know yet," said Danny Granger. "We're thinking about it but I'm not positive. We might do black shoes, black socks. The shaved-heads idea came up but I don't know how Jeff Foster would look with a shaved head and Mike Dunleavy didn't want to cut his golden locks.

    "I don't know how that's going to turn out but we might do something."

    You may have noticed several blue headbands scattered throughout the lineup in the regular-season finale Wednesday in Orlando. That might've been foreshadowing.

    I kind of like the black shoes and socks idea. That's a callback to the Pacers' decade of dominance in the '90s. But if these guys want to blaze their own trail -- although the blue headbands lacked panache -- more power to them.

    In the playoffs, there are many ways to make a statement.

    Speaking of which, there hasn't been what you'd call a controversy about Granger's comments last week about the Pacers preferring the Bulls to the Celtics (when the matchups were not yet set) but a local columnist took him to task and a prominent Chicago sportswriter asked Thursday if he would either retract the statement or apologize for giving the Bulls bulletin-board material.

    "I don't believe in the bulletin board," he said. "If you're a team in the NBA that's got to get up for the playoffs, you don't need bulletin-board material, especially a team like Chicago. They're the No. 1 seed, eyes on a championship, they should be ready to play."

    So he doesn't take it back?

    "No," Granger said. "It's the honest truth."

    That's the best kind.

    There are many reasons to be glad Mike Dunleavy has finally reached the postseason but on a purely selfish level, I am happy to have someone so utterly quotable around.

    Consider Thursday, when Dunleavy was asked Standard Pacers Playoff Question No. 1, about how they might try to combat their near-total lack of playoff experience.

    "Jeff Foster has loved to talk about it and tell all the playoff war stories," Dunleavy said with a wry grin. "I told him, 'Hey, man, it's been four or five years since you've been there. Back then they wore low-top Converses and played with a red, white and blue ball so you may have a few things to figure out yourself.' "

    Think of how much fun this has been already, and the games haven't yet begun.

    I bought a Reggie Hardwood Classic Flo-Jo this winter.

    Has anyone EVER seen a white Flo-Jo for sale ANYWHERE?

    Ha, looks like there's a Duane Ferrell and Vern FLemming one too.

    EDIT: And a Reggie one for almost 2,000 bucks.

    Champion made some of the home jerseys as well, but they are harder to find. A Reggie pops up on ebay every once in awhile.

    I like that Granger is sticking by his guns on his comment.

    Champion was the official outfitter for the team until 1999, then Puma took the reigns through 2001. 2002-06 Reebok, then when Adidas AG bought Reebok that's when Adidas' name was plastered over everything.

    Should just go back to the FloJos.
    That could be really cool. The Warriors and Jazz have pioneered going full-time retro, so it's not as wild of an idea as it used to be, which makes it more likely (IMO) to actually happen (well, maybe).

    I'd dig that.

    The Flo-Jo's really are some of the best uniforms in NBA history. There's no reason to change something that's great, and we should have kept them all these years.

    I made this a few months ago. Really rushed it. 5 minutes of Photoshop, but this was my idea.


    I, for the record, like our current jerseys. And I love the banana suits. But I'm good for bringing back any retro uni, especially the FloJos. Or at least a slightly modernized version, like this one.

    I actually also really like the current jerseys. I like that they took inspiration from one of the old ABA jerseys I really like.

    I like the current ones but the roads need more color. Problem's I think making the side panel yellow like the homes would be ugly, and white just wouldn't work.

    I sure hope its the FloJo uniform. The Reggie Miller FloJo was my first jersey i ever owned. Would love to see them bring it back. My favorite of all time.

    What about a GOLD(not yellow) FloJo as an alternate? With white and blue as the side paneling.

    I like the FloJos but also like the old fashioned white and blue pinstripes. I just don't like anything that has Yellow as the pre-dominate color in the uniform.

    Yes.

    "She fulfilled a lifelong dream as a fashion designer, even designing uniforms for the Indiana Pacers in 1989."
