    Default Plane Ride Home

    I often see shots on the news of fans greeting a team when their plane arrives. When will they get here? Where do I go? This team should know how much appreciation people have.

    This is a good idea. I'm guessing they took a bus though.

    This is the modern 21st century NBA with young stars. They would drive down I65 in their Lambborgini's before they get on a bus.

    It just seems kind of pointless to take a plane from Indy to Chicago.

    Then again, I'm not a NBA player and it's probably better security.

    Thanks for the info though.

    Most players probably want to take a plane from Conseco to the airport

    Kind of sad that none of us have an answer to the main question of where they would arrive and when.

    Something to work on for next year. Would be nice to meet the team at the airport, even if it's just Area 55 representing.

    On plane its a half hour (I've gone that route a couple of times but from Chicago to Indy)

    On bus its like 3 hours and given how bad Lafayette looked last night I'm glad they took the plane.

    they took a plane. they need to be greeted. Fans of OKC last year did it. Why not us?

    You're kidding right? This is a frontrunning sports town our stadium was composed of Bulls fans(mostly) in Game 4 you think they're going to greet the team coming home?

    I take it you forgot the 11 people showing up when the Colts lost the SB and they came home.

    (Personally I don't think you're less of a fan if you don't show up to greet them its a stupid tradition if I ever heard one not everyone has that kind of time)

    How is it a stupid tradition if both the fans and players enjoy it? I like the idea, and it sounds like the people who went had a memorable time.

    Not as good as the one that said it was a fact that Paul George was playing like the worst player on the team after game 4.

    But still worthy of a nomination though.

    So I'm guessing no one here knows their travel plans? I actually like the idea of greeting them. This team deserves some love.

    Man, too far away. I'd never make it. Hopefully we can be better prepared next year if we lose on the road.

    If I find a midget bum quick enough and put him in a 55 jersey you think it'd shatter Roy's psyche?

    All I know is it happened, and Josh was the coolest ever. I'll let the Area 55ers who were able to make it fill in later.
