    I love this game because Wilt was the man.

    I love this game because,

    while no-look passes are exciting, and alley-oops can make you drop your jaw,

    it eventually comes down to guarding somebody and getting some stops.

    I love this game because with all of the high-flying superstar talent, sometime it comes down to a relatively less-heralded guy like John Paxton, Steve Kerr, Jeff Hornacek, Bruce Bowen, Robert Horry, or Travis Best who is left "just a little too open" and makes the game-winning, game-saving, or back-breaking shot.

    BECAUSE YOU GET TO WEAR A HELMET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I giggle every time I see that commerical, and now I'm giggling every time you post that!
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I love this game because I live in a time when the Lakers are actually proud that they beat the Magic in a close game.

    Because you get to wear a helmet.....well


    I can't argue with that logic... nor can I argue with a Purple Hippo doing a slap dance anyway!

    I love this game because sometimes you get to match your favorite team with you favorite T.V. show.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!
