    Default 2011-12 NBA Random Thoughts Thread VIII: Random Thoughts the 8th I am!

    In honor of preseason tipping off tonight, I thought I may as well get the ball rolling...

    For those of you newcomers, this is the thread for random non-pacers related stuff that doesn't warrant it's own thread.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    The holidays are almost upon us and I've only begun to think about shopping, let alone buy gifts. I'm holding my breath as the funding for my job runs out in two weeks and I review the horrific unemployment numbers. My car has now been with a mechanic for four weeks (have you ridden a bus lately?) ... but instead of resorting to anxiety, I choose to deliberate on how much to bid on Travis Outlaw. Our Pacers: Such an wonderfully effective opiate.

    Poor Kobe. Purple and Gold becoming more Blue and Gold as time goes by.

    Is NBA League Pass free over the preseason as well as the first week of the season?

    Curiosity.

    Norris Cole and Reggie Jackson my two sleepers. More so Cole because he will get more PT this year.

    ...so...Kobe's wife picks 9 days before Christmas to file for divorce?

    This can't be good for LA's season...

    I think the Pacers should be like the Ramones; everyone should change their last name to Pacer. So our starting lineup tonight would have been:

    Danny Pacer
    Tyler Pacer
    Roy Pacer
    Paul Pacer
    Darren Pacer

    And the warmups should be jeans and leather jackets.

    Sounds like Kobe has recently been experiencing a different form of lockout

    Maybe from one woman, but I'm sure he has no problems. Guess that big 'ol rock he bought her a few years ago wasn't enough. I think this could be good for the Lakers. Kobe is at his best when pissed off.

    Aren't the Pacers favorites for a 4 seed this year? If we assume MIA/CHI/BOS are still the top three, I don't know how any other team tops us. Orlando I see regressing as they've added nothing to help Howard.

    Atlanta has not improved their roster. The Knickerbockers do not scare me in the least bit. Tyson is the only one on that team who will play any defense. Not sure they're they're that much better than they were last year.

    Boy, those guys look pretty miserable. Also kinda funny/sad that they gave away Chris Paul's number already.

    And TJ had a turnover in the first 11 seconds of the game, followed by an airballed three.
