Pacers "Relevant" again and Vogel starting to stand up to players. - Page 2
I was recently told a story from my ex-coach who is a season ticket holder and was given a chance to sit in on a practice.
The team was doing a 2v1 fast break drill, where whoever made a shot had to get back on defense. He didn't say who it was but apparently one of the players after making a shot just walked off the court instead of running back on defense, and refused to listen to the coaches when he was told to get back on defense.
He also said he felt like the players half-assed the practice until Larry Bird came walking in at which point in time they started to practice hard.
So it appears to me that the players respect Bird, but in no way respect Vogel.

Another offbase column by Kravitz.
If Bulls fans actually did not know until recently that Indiana had an NBA team then they are even dumber than I thought. Amazing that Chicagoans could be so dismissive of Indiana after Superbowl XLI.
The Pacers' attendance woes are simply a product of playing in a small market and not being very good. The Bulls didn't win more than 30 games in a season for the better part of a decade after Jordan retired but still drew well. The Knicks, Clippers, Nets, Timberwolves, and Warriors have all been worse on average than the Pacers over the past five seasons but draw more fans as a result of playing in a bigger market. That is all.
It wasn't that long ago that the Pacers were drawing 16-17k a night on average.
