    Google has slightly updated maps. Also, I made it easier on the eyes. Sandman probably used paint.

    Man this thread doesnt get the traffic it used to. Anyways, are any Area55ers skipping the Cavs game tonight? If so I could use 2 tickets/ Thanks in advance either way.
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    Right now it looks like we will be out there at around 4 ish.
    Honestly it all depends on when the lot opens.
    I know we usually have people who show up and have to wait for the lot to open up.
    Were going to be out early, cooking out, and playing some games!

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Salutations, 55ers!

    Yes, after a long hiatus, the Area 55 Newsletter resumes with its homegame Playoff Edition. There is so much to get to and so little time.

    Remember Game 1? The New York press had this to say about their home team’s disappointing loss:

    “Roy Hibbert showed off his preternatural, almost eerie knack for standing totally still and allowing drivers and their shots to bounce off his sternum. The Knicks did a fine job getting to the rim, but the Pacers built a wall around said rim. The Knicks couldn't climb it and couldn't get it to topple on them in a way that convinced the refs it was the wall's fault.

    Result?

    "The Knicks strived all season to capture the 2nd seed over Indiana...And they gave back homecourt to the Pacers in one lousy afternoon" .

    I savor that review; I thank God for Roy Hibbert and his mastery of the principle of verticality; and so enjoy beating the Knicks.

    But we can’t live in the past. Tonight, at 8:00 P.M. our Indiana Pacers have to defend the home court advantage that they wrenched from the Knicks in Game 1. Maybe ESPN hasn’t picked up on it yet (as they’ve been ignoring our guys all year) but, as we all know, the Pacers are especially good at home. Our mission tonight is to show the world that this continues to be so.

    Over the past 3 years, Area 55 has played a small part in making ours an “Arena from Hell” – an elephant burial ground where roundballers from other climes basically come to die. In our next two encounters with with New York, Bankers Life Fieldhouse has to stay that way – a venue where our foe's shots go askew, their rebounds evaporate, and their foul shots carom harmlessly off of maddeningly deadened rims. It’s a place were the enemy can’t hear or think because the noise, the general level of intensity, and our team’s stingy defensive territoriality all combine to render an opponent’s normality criminally abnormal.

    BLF has to go on being our turf tonight. Our task, as Area 55, is to help our guys defend that turf. We can’t let an emminently despicable opponent like the Knicks come in and burglarize our home. Tonight, EVERYBODY in Area 55, has to be in top form. NO LET UPS! It’ll be a gold-out, of course, and the game will be sold out. There ought to be plenty of noise even without us. But we need to set the tone. We have to fulfill the role that Roy Hibbert chose us for – to catalyze the crowd, make the mood even louder and crazier. We have to make the environment in BLF tonight totally hostile. We need to run the Knicks back to New York City spent, humbled,and exhausted, with their Dutch pantaloons down and their Big Apple genitalia hanging out for ESPN to see. Tonight is Game 3. We absolutely have to win this. We, as Area 55, have to do our job. LET’S DO IT!

    NOW FOR SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT THE KNICKS!

    What the Hell Is a Knickerbocker Anyway? Well, it all depends on context. According to the Urban Dictionary, a “Knickerbocker” can be any of around seven different things – none of which are particularly good.

    http://tinyurl.com/csts75z

    The most conventional definition has a “Knickerbocker” just being somebody from New York City. It comes from the late 1600s when New York City was then a Dutch colony called “New Amsterdam” and the inhabitants wore “knickers” for pants. Since these were so commonly seen on the streets there, the name was then applied to the residents. Thus “Knickerbockers” became the source of the New York Knickerbockers' original team name. This is all reflected in the Knickerbockers ridiculously stupid original team logo, which can be viewed here:

    http://tinyurl.com/c9dhob9

    The “Knickerbockers” name for the New York pro basketball team was later abbreviated to simply “Knicks”. The reasons for this abbreviation are murky. However, the most likely reason is that the word “Knickerbocker,” for strange reasons, came to have all kinds of unwholesome connotations above and beyond the original Dutch word for "pants." Here, the Urban Dictionary is helpful again, as it explicates some of the more pejorative and even obscene meanings that, over the years, have come to be associated with the word “Knickerbocker”.

    Warning mothers! Don’t let Junior read this.

    Urban Dictionary "Knickerbocker" Definition No. 4: “A total cheapskate, especially when it comes to making sure to use every possible coupon and special offer”

    Usage Example: “You can afford the cover charge! Don’t be such a knickerbocker!”

    Urban Dictionary "Knickerbocker" Definition No. 6: “Banging” a useful word

    Usage Example: “Go knickerbocker your grandma!”

    Urban Dictionary "Knickerbocker" Definition No. 5: “When a woman takes a man's testicles, places them in her cleavage, and then proceeds to slap her tits together creating a knickerbocker.”

    Usage Example: Man: Wait, what are you doing?!!!!

    Woman: Something I learned in art school! It's called the knickerbocker!

    (Strange knocking noises follow)

    Little Known (But Amazingly True!) Facts About the New York Knicks:

    1. Carmelo Anthony’s middle name is “Kyam” True. I haven’t been able to figure out why. Maybe it’s a variant on the famous Persian poet Omar Khayyam (“A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, and La La Vasquez!). Maybe it comes from one of those “Give Your Baby an Exotic Name” books. Maybe it just happened. And yeah, Melo’s wife’s name really is La La Vasquez and some (well, Kevin Garnett anyway) say she tastes like a honey-sweet breakfast cereal.

    Melo and La La married on Christmas Day 2004. Among the guests in attendance were LeBron James, Kim and Khloe Kardasian, and Lamar Odom (ah, the happier days!). Has his marriage and all the hobknobbing with celebs caused Melo to perhaps forget his humble roots? You be the judge.

    As a side venture, Carmelo Anthony is now involved in "Haute Time" - a luxury watch ($10,000 and up if you want one) business. It’s slogan is: “Whether you’re at the start of your journey or you’re already a collector, Haute Time will get your heart racing,”

    2. J.R. Smith’s birth name is “Earl Joseph Smith III.” Yes, they often call him Speedo but his real names is Mr. Earl. Mr. Earl is rumored to have a thing going with Rihanna. That’s our Speedo!

    http://tinyurl.com/3wffsgq

    3. Amar’e Stoudamire’s nickname is “Stat”. He gave it to himself in high school. It’s supposedly an acronym for “Standing Tall and Talented”. And how about this! Right now, he and his personal chef are working on a cookbook together that they plan to publish called “Cooking with Amar’e!” I just pre-ordered my copy on Amazon a few minutes ago!

    Last year, Amar'e cut his hand by punching a glass fire extinguisher case after a frustrating 2nd game playoff loss to the Heat. (No, no book co-authored with his physician afterwards called “Punching Inanimate Objects with Amar’e!” followed). After the incident, which jeopardized New York’s Playoff hopes greatly, the local sportswriters nicknamed him “Stitch,” as many of such were required to close the ensuing gash in his hand.

    4. Knick's reserve guard, Jason Kidd, married in 1997. Sadly, on January 9, 2007, he was forced to filed for divorce. As grounds, he cited "extreme cruelty" perpetrated on him by his wife. This cruelty was manifested in “intense jealousy, paranoia, and the threat of false domestic abuse claims to the police.” His wife counterclaimed claiming, among other things, that Jason had “damaged her hearing by smashing her head into the console of a car.” Alas, so ended a once beautiful relationship.

    5. Tyson Chandler is the subject of a 20-page, self-published e-zine called “Tyson Chandler” which features 20 separate pages of pictures of ….yup! Tyson Chandler!

    BTW Tyson has a lot in common with rural Hoosiers! Until age 10 he lived on his Grandad's farm in California where, among other things, he "slopped pigs." His Grandpa's name was "Cleotis"

    More on the wondrous New York Knicks in our next issue. All I can say now is that if there really are such things as karma, justice, and cosmic retribution for hubris, the Knicks are way overdo for a comeuppance. Now is as good a time as any for our Pacers to administer one.

    GO PACERS! GO AREA 55!

    Interesting. I didn't realize that the line from Paul Simon's "Was a Sunny Day" was a direct reference to the Cadillacs.

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!!

    Salutations, 55ers!

    Tonight, as you all know, it’s The Big Kahuna! Our guys are 2-1 over the favored Knicks. To date, our suave foes from The Big Apple have yet to find a way to penetrate The Wall of Hibbert and get a win this season in our Temple of Doom. The pantaloons-wearers are 0-3 in Indianapolis. If we can just put them away tonight, as Kravitz says, The Knicks are toast. They could never in a million years beat us three games straight if we go up on them 3-1.

    Things are in a bit of disarray for the Knicks too. J. R. “Mr. Earl” Smith was still ailing as of yesterday from a mysterious antibiotic resistant ailment that he picked up while partying with a passel of chippies while doing the NYC club scene before Game 1. Kenyon Martin reportedly has the same malady and neither of them has been practicing as a result. Knicks coach Mike Woodson has had both of them quarantined in their hotel rooms hoping for a miraculous recovery.

    That isn’t all of it. Iman “Squarehair” Shumpert is supposed to play tonight, but ESPN’s pre-game injury report says he has a “sore and bruised left knee”. Whether he plays or not depends, supposedly, on an orthopedist’s pre-game decision. Marcus Camby’s out with the heartbreak of psoriasis – whoops! Check that! Plantar fasciitis. Amar’e Stoudamire is back, but Woodson says he won’t play more than 9 to 12 minutes (his remaining time will be devoted to working with his personal chef on his soon to be published culinary tome, “Cooking with Amar’e!”).

    Knicks All-NBA Defender, Tyson Chandler, supposedly, is still suffering from a “lingering neck injury” (NBA injuries always tend to “linger”). Maybe it's lingering or maybe it’s malingering. What’s clear is Tyson’s not been playing very well. Normally a rebounding nymphomaniac, to date, Tyson has only pulled down 12 boards during the entire series with Indiana. This is not good. Consider here that Lance Stephenson, all by his lonesome, had 13 of these precious jewels just in Game 1. Worse for Tyson, our Big Dawg has bitten him in the *** consistently in every game we’ve played. Tyson, consequently, has been grousing that the Knicks haven’t “followed their game plan” and haven’t properly doubled the Big Dawg underneath. Tyson also went so far as claiming, without mentioning names, that the Knicks scoring problems are attributable to a collective failure to “share the ball” – something NYC sports pundits say is a not-so-veiled slap at Tyson’s teammate, Carmelo Anthony (who doesn’t have the word “assist” in his workaday linguistic vocabulary and normally is above reproach, in NYC just the same). Melo, reportedly, seemed mildly irritated at Tyson’s remarks and indicated that they would “talk about it” in a team conclave that was to have transpired yesterday.

    Anyway, none of the above bodes well for the Knicks.

    That said, as we all know, the Knicks also regard tonight’s game as a “must-win”. I therefore expect Carmelo Kyam will be flinging up more than his usual number of threes, will be trying to penetrate the lane to get Roy in foul trouble, and will also be trying to help Chandler on the boards. As a unit, the Knicks will also likely be trying to trap us, turn us over, and even zone us so as to prevent Roy and D-Train from doing their normal havoc in the paint.

    Our role, again, 55ers, is to be as loud as we possibly can be. This game is muy BIG. The winner of it likely will win this session of the Playoffs and go on to face Miami. LET’S DO OUR JOB!!!! NO LET UPS!!!! SCREAM OURSELVES HOARSE!!!!

    Tonight, my friends, is pivotal. It’s really for all the marbles.

    Important Pre-Game Stuff!!! OK, in this morning’s email package (which some of you don’t read, so I’ll repeat it here), our Suits guru and monitor, Zac Fronterhouse, advises about pre-game events a-brewing which relate to two of my favorite things: Pizza and Beer!

    Notandum Bene: If you get off your butts and click where Zac says, you get special treatment and cuts in line for both. Zac’s missives follow:

    NO. 1 - BEER!!!!

    “Sorry for two emails in one night, but another big program was just announced and Area 55 is one of the first to know. You can get VIP Access to the Budweiser Beer Garden by registering now. VIP gives you access starting at 3pm. During the first two hours before the general public, you’ll get to hang out with complimentary drinks from Budweiser and listen to JMV as he broadcasts live.

    Monocles-R-Us! First some appropriate monocle-wearing vid-music:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9PoUsRibtE

    HEY, WEAR A MONOCLE TO TONITE’S GAME!

    OK, you can take it off after tipoff, but wouldn't it be a kewl thing for a bunch of us to have something classy on when we chance to be on camera. Sure it would! We ain't hicks! We have a fashion-sense! Hence, your beloved lame-duck Prez has picked up a few monocles and also made a bunch of hand-crafted cheap-os out of plumbing supply O-rings and yellow twine that I’ll be handing out at the PTO (which ought to convene around 5 in the $5.00 lot across from Arby’s at the corner of South & Pennsylvania). Should make for a good photo op and fill Roy with joy knowing his fashion message has resonated!

    Why wear a monocle? Well for the uninformed, our patron and stylemeister, Roy Hibbert, almost wore a monocle in his Game 3 postgame interview. In almost, but not quite, sticking it in his oversized eye socket (Paul George wisely counseled him against doing it), Roy almost, but not quite, joined the ranks of many other famous monocle wearers and cyclopean fashionistas of the past.

    Again, why Roy and the monocle? Apparently, Roy has been a secret monocle aficionado for many moons. It all stems from a podcast he did a while back with comedienne Chelsea Peretti. In the podcast Chelsea and Roy were talking about NBA fashion-sense or the lamentable lack thereof since Commish David Stern imposed a dress code on his reluctant player-wards:

    Roy to Chelsea: "All these guys wearing, like, skinny jeans and glasses with no frames in it, stuff like that, that’s a thing of the past. I’m going to start something new here.”

    After Chelsea urged him to start an NBA ponytail trend, Hibbert agreed, although with the following caveat:

    “I say a ponytail, but you have to have some sort of eyewear. I’m going with a monocle. I’ll be the first one to rock a monocle like Mr. Peanut, or whoever. Like the Monopoly guy.”

    So Roy had a monocle that he didn’t stick in his eye at his Game 3 presser. Supposedly, after deciding against wearing it, he gave it to Indy Star sports newsie, Mike Wells. My hope is that Wells puts it to good use, carefully reviewing all of those columns he wrote about Roy not earning his contract money.

    Also this: If Wells does not have that monocle stuck in his peeper when Brooke interviews him pre-game tonight….well, boos would minimally be in order.

    Anyway, intrigued by The Big Dawg’s attempted resurrection of the retro style and fashion sense that always goes with monocle-wearing, I also put the Research Staff of the Area 55 Newsletter to work compiling a run-down of other famous monocle-wearers Here are the results:

    It’s Monocle Night at the PTO and in Area 55! To reiterate, to celebrate Roy’s fashion sense and generally to show our New York City viewers that Hoosiers are not, in fact, “hicks,” your Prez will be handing out his complimentary ersatz monocles at the PTO and pre-game (if any are left by then). Get yours and stick it in your eye! Be a fashion maven like Roy!
    Let’s get a few pictures taken all-monocled up to show that we stand in solidarity with Roy’s new trend in eyewear.

    GO PACERS! GO AREA 55! LET’S WIN THIS SUCKER!

    Yes we are! Don't remind me! But if you liked the Cadillacs, I'm guessing you'll love the vid I inserted in today's Newsletter showing Gene Chandler (no relation to Tyson) doing "Duke of Earl"

    If you liked Speedo and the Caddies, you'll love Gene Chandler doing "Duke of Earl". Such things are wasted, methinks, on our younger readership.

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!!

    Salutations, 55ers.

    I could tell all of you how important tonight’s game is, but I know you all know that already.

    I could also tell you how important it will be tonight that we be loud, raucous, and crazy, but you all know that already too.

    I will tell you this and I'll be uncharacteristically brief. We all want to see our guys get another crack at LeBron. The Knicks stand in our way. Tonight, our guys’ mission is to eliminate the Knicks. I’m sure every member of the Pacers knows what he has to do. Frank will have them ready.

    We have a mission too. We are part of the reason the Knicks haven’t won in Indy this year. We have to keep the crowd engaged. We need to encourage our guys; we need to thoroughly discourage the Knicks.

    Let’s bring everything we can and leave it all in BLF tonight

    Elbow Picks Need any more motivation? Well, for starters, we may be playing without George Hill again tonight. Right now, as this Newsletter goes out, whether George will be able to play or not will be a game-time decision dependent, in large part. on whether he passes an NBA concussion test.

    I hope I’m wrong, but my expectation is George probably won’t play due to the head-smack he sustained on a screen thrown at him by Tyson Chandler in Game 4.

    Here’s the Chandler screen: http://tinyurl.com/cnd8l4e

    You may have noted that Chandler’s screening maneuver featured an extended, outwardly thrust, high elbow that was aimed, in my humble opinion, at intentionally catching a defenseless George Hill squarely in the side of his head. In my opinion, the way Chandler’s elbow was positioned made his screen “unsportsmanlike” under operative NBA rules jargon and should have merited, minimally, a Flagrant One foul, if not a Flagrant Two that would’ve had Chandler thrown out of the game and assessed a hefty fine.

    It is one thing to set an arms-close-to-the-body-screen and totally another to stick out an elbow in order to guarantee head contact.

    Nothing was called by the referees at the time Tyson stuck out his forearm and his elbow, of course. That’s the way things go in the NBA. Chandler wasn’t fined afterwards either. That’s the way things usually go in the NBA too, especially when the victim isn’t an ESPN-anointed NBA star.

    For educational purposes, contrast the above non-call with another Chandler-inflicted screen in which poor LeBron James was the victim and the immediate NBA refereeing response:

    http://tinyurl.com/beoy5w8

    What’s the NBA rule on elbows used in screening? Our crack research staff has swung into action:

    NBA Rule 4 – Definitions -Section X-Screen

    A screen is the legal action of a player who, without causing undue contact, delays or prevents an opponent from reaching a desired position.
    NBA Rule 4 – Definitions – Section IV - Fouls

    f. An elbow foul is making contact with the elbow in an unsportsmanlike manner whether the ball is dead or alive.

    NBA Comments on the Rules – Section II – Basic Principles - Section B - Fouls: Flagrant - Unsportsmanlike

    To be unsportsmanlike is to act in a manner unbecoming to the image of professional basketball. It consists of acts of deceit, disrespect of officials and profanity. The penalty for such action is a technical foul. Repeated acts shall result in expulsion from the game and a minimum fine of $1000.

    A flagrant foul-penalty (1) is unnecessary contact committed by a player against an opponent.

    A flagrant foul-penalty (2) is unnecessary and excessive contact committed by a player against an opponent. It is an unsportsmanlike act and the offender is ejected immediately.

    The offender will be subject to a fine not exceeding $35,000 and/or suspension by the Commissioner.

    NBA Rule No. 12 – Fouls and Penalties – A. Technical Fouls – Section V – Conduct

    d. A technical foul shall be assessed for unsportsmanlike tactics such as:
    (6) A deliberately-thrown elbow or any attempted physical act with no contact involved

    l. A player, coach or trainer must be ejected for:
    …(3) An elbow foul which makes contact above shoulder level

    Now you know what the rules say. How they are interpreted, of course, is another thing.

    But this much is for certain:

    Tyson Chandler, I think, ought to be booed constantly tonight. He’s a jerk. Let’s get in his bearded head.

    A chant of “ELBOWS, ELBOWS” might resonate on nationwide TV too. Who knows? Maybe it’ll have a salutary effect. Maybe the next time a big guy elects to level a guard with a dangerously extended high forearm and elbow, the high rollers in the NBA front office might actually get off their dead asses and do something about it.

    GO PACERS! GO AREA 55!

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!!!!


    Salutations 55ers!

    Tonight at 8:30 P.M. we confront Miami on our home floor. The game will be sold out, the crowd will likely be lively and liquored up, and I’m hoping the noise level will reach 125 decibels or more (125 being the threshold for pain to the ears). The Heat have been very quiet since we stole home court from them in Miami. They know that if the Pacers take the next two games here in Indy, their Playoff hole will likely be so deep that even their coddled star, LeBron “The King” James, will likely be unable to pull them out of it. The pressure on both teams – us to maintain, and them to regain, home court advantage will be intense.

    Area 55 and G2Zone have to bring it as never before. The next two games in BLF are the culmination of everything that our twin fan sections exist for. Our noise has to be constant, loud, and telling. No lulls. No let-ups. No lapses.

    Mark Boyle, the Pacers radio voice, mentioned in Game 2 that the Miami crowd always got quiet when the Heat were down. The Knicks crowd, in Madison Square Garden, occasionally booed the Knicks when they struggled and went down to us. It amazes me that this can happen in the context of the Playoffs. It amazes me that the Heat and the Knicks have fans like that.

    We, by contrast, are different. We love our guys. And now, at long last, we have the opportunity to demonstrate to every basketball fan in America that will be watching tonight’s game just what a crowd from a rust-bucket, small-market town can bring for its team in our, by NBA standards, tiny little arena.

    Many players and pundits have said that the noise level in the old Market Square Arena used to be the highest in the NBA. Some say that the noise heard now in BLF pales by comparison.

    Let’s show the whole world tonight that they’re wrong. Let’s show them how much we love our team and just how much we want them to succeed and win.

    Remember this tonight:

    The Pacers carry our state’s name on their shirts. They represent our home city’s proud pro basketball tradition. But they are more than that.

    They are guys that have worked in our food kitchens, autographed our kids’ jerseys, sponsored our blood drives, and put backpacks on our kids’ shoulders. They are good guys. They are like us. Diligent, hard-working, tough, resilient and strong.

    Like us, they are built, not bought. They have done things the right way. They are humble, not arrogant. Quiet guys and not media gods. They are self-developed and not artificially created.

    They have represented us well. They are very young, but they have come from basketball nowhere in a short three years to bring our city to the brink of an Eastern Conference Championship.

    The Pacers mirror us. They have become a part of us. The Pacers are us.

    Let’s make sure that we, as fans, let our guys know tonight that we know that. Let them know that we appreciate them. That we love them. That we treasure everything they’ve done for us. That we support them in their effort and in their quest to bring us, and themselves, even more.

    MEET THE ENEMY! GENUFLECT BEFORE THE KING!!!!

    A brief introduction to Rings and Things: http://tinyurl.com/6okowp9

    LeBron James is perhaps Akron, Ohio’s most famous citizen (unless you want to count Harvey Firestone, the founder of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company or Art Fleming, the first emcee of the TV quiz show “Jeopardy!”).

    As a tyke, LeBron grew up a basketball prodigy, happily dribbling the roundball, ingesting steroids from his mother’s mammaries, and when not doing television interviews, hating the city of Cleveland.

    True, LeBron’s home town, Akron, is located a mere 40 miles from Cleveland -- but as most Buckeye Staters know, these two towns are worlds apart in terms of their level of sophistication and culture. As LeBron once said of Cleveland (while musing on the halcyon days of his royal youth):

    “It’s not far, but it is far. And Clevelanders, because they were the bigger-city kids when we were growing up, looked down on us. … So we didn’t actually like Cleveland. We hated Cleveland growing up. There’s a lot of people in Cleveland we still hate to this day.”


    And, I might interject here, many in Cleveland still hate LeBron.

    See, LeBron grew up a Basketball-Jonesy type of kid that, on finishing high school, decided to take his beloved momma’s advice (and that of his public relations guru, the world’s only ape possessed of a PhD) to eschew college and take his talents to the NBA in search of the big bucks. Unaware of his secret hatred for Cleveland, that city’s team, the Cavaliers, naively drafted him. Clevelanders embraced The Young Lord, anointing him as their “The King” and hoped in the depths of their depressed Midwestern hearts that he would take their squalid town - lowly, polluted, rust-bucket Cleveland - to the nether-reaches of NBA titledom.

    LeBron, at first, seemed amenable to the deal. After getting drafted, he took the money Cleveland gave him and, for a time, buried his festering but still clandestine hatred of that city and its snobby, Akron-disdaining citizenry. He buried that hatred for six or seven NBA seasons – basically until his contract was about to expire. During that time period he even managed to take the lackluster Cavaliers to the Playoffs a couple of times. But, for all The King’s efforts and try as hard as he might, he was just never quite able to get that coveted Big Kahuna of all Kahunas - an NBA Championship Ring.

    This troubled and frustrated “The King.” Sure, he was the king in Cleveland and the royal treasury was full. But without a Ring, in the NBA scheme of things, The King was really only minor royalty – an uppity nabob, a nattering princeling, a mere satrap, and not really, as James Brown might have said, “The King of ‘Em All, Y’All.”

    LeBron looked at the Cavalier players around him – mediocrities like Mo Williams and Anderson Varajao – and concluded that it might take him quite a long while, if not forever, to make it to NBA nirvana-land and get a Ring.

    Also, The King, himself, had developed a troubled personal history of going into a disappearing act during the 4th Quarters of Cleveland’s Playoff games. Crunch time was tough when everybody had to count just on him to pull a tight game out and the King had nobody else to throw the ball to. It's hard to get a Ring for a King when The King's got no help!

    So, in 2010, The King’s time had come. His contract with the Cavs was about to expire and The King was about to become that most liberated of all NBA fauna – a “free agent!” In a flash, a burst of an idea stole into The King’s supple and chemically-enhanced brain: He needed help! Without “help,” he’d never, ever, be able to get a Ring anytime soon in Cleveland. No. For sadly, despite all his elite athletic prowess, The King wasn’t like a Shaquille O’Neal, a Tim Duncan, a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, or a Michael Jordan. He’d never be able to put a supporting cast as bad as Cleveland’s on his back and get himself that all-important Ring!

    So The King realized he had to make a “Decision!”

    See, there was this other guy out there called “D-Wade.” D-Wade played on another NBA team that was a lot like Cleveland. It was called the Miami Heat. D-Wade was a pretty good player too. And, just like The King, D-Wade had earned no Ring and was going nowhere Playoff-wise with Miami. D-Wade wanted a Ring too.

    See, in Miami the favorite urban sport is sniffing cocaine and despite all D-Wade’s flair, basketball there is basically a sideshow -- something played in a big local arena but viewed only by white-suited drug lords who showed up (infrequently at that!), usually around 30 minutes after tip-offs, and generally only to admire one another’s suits and cut illegal drug deals.

    And there was still another guy with The King’s problem. This one was a funny-looking guy, who was going nowhere with a team called the Toronto Raptors. His name was Chris “CB4” Bosh. Bosh was supposed to be a pretty good basketball player too, but his team, the Raptors, basically stunk. CB4 was unhappy in Toronto. He’d recently had his nose broken, was malingering a lot on the bench, and the fan base were growing impatient with him and calling him “soft.” Chris didn’t like the weather in snowy Canada either. And his prospects of getting a Ring in Toronto were almost as dim as that city’s wintry skies. But, like The King, Chris was a “free agent” too!

    Now, thought The King, wouldn’t it be neat if he and D-Wade and CB4 all got together someplace – say Miami – and made all nice and played their basketball together. Why then they’d have a “Great Team!” Then the three of them could “help” each other and get lotsa Rings!

    There were other factors to consider too, of course. Like “happiness.” Was LeBron really “happy” in Cleveland – a city that Akronites like him always inwardly despised and where one of his teammates, Delonte West, was rumored to then be having an affair with LeBron’s mom (the esteemed Queen Mother)?

    “Happiness,” after all, is important. A King needs to be happy! And Cleveland was just Cleveland. The King, despite the worshipful adulation of the city’s fans, really didn’t owe Cleveland or its fans anything. Kings never owe their realms anything. Kings owe nothing to anyone but themselves. That's just the way royalty works.

    So all these factors began to percolate like festering farts in The King’s royal brain. The King pondered these factors. He “thought” about them. He consulted with The Queen Mother. He consulted with his public relations man, PhD Ape. He started consulting secretly with Pat Riley, the Miami Heat’s General Manager.

    Rumors that The King was doing all this “thinking” and “consulting” got out to the newsies too. ESPN started talking about it. Pundits started talking about it. Cleveland started talking about it. Everybody started talking about it.

    And the talking started using big, university-type words that The King, who never attended college, had never even heard before. Words like “synergy” and “osmosis” and “Triple Entente.” And all the talking and big words boiled down to the possibility that The King, D-Wade, and CB4 –might all just take a slight pay cut and use the thing called “free agency” to get together someplace -- someplace nicer than Cleveland and Toronto. Someplace like maybe New York or, even better, a nice warm place like Miami. That way, y’see, The King could get his “help” and, together with D-Wade and CB4, The King could win lotsa Rings and then he could be "happy!"

    Of course, before making such a move, LeBron had to really think about it. A royal “Decision” always requires beaucoup royal thinking. It also requires somewhere appropriate to announce “The Decision” once it is made – a grand and noble venue, like in an hour-long nationally televised program. So LeBron set one up!.

    But there was drama too! Ah, there was so much to consider: There were all those prior pronouncements and promises that The King had made to Cleveland’s management and its fan base. Stuff like:

    "I got a goal, and it's a huge goal, and that's to bring an NBA championship here to Cleveland. And I won't stop until I get it."


    Many philologists, grammarians, and other learned people that are tasked with interpreting the meaning of words had parsed prior statements like this from The King and concluded that they meant something. Many thought that these royal words meant that, despite The King’s “free agency,” His Noble Highness had actually promised to remain with his subjects in his royal Cleveland domain and labor on longer, at least for as long as it would take to bring Cleveland an NBA championship.

    But The King knew his earlier royal pronouncements and promises to Cleveland were just one factor to consider. There were yet other more important ones. There was The King’s long-simmering, Akronite hatred of sophisticated, snobby Cleveland and its citizenry to remember. Such early slights still rankled The Anointed One The King had a great memory and he just couldn’t forget them.

    And there were those nagging personal issues too. As mentioned, one of The King’s nobles, a Cleveland player named DeLonte West, and The King’s royal mom, The Queen Mother, had been getting it on. This bothered The King’s concentration and had caused a worsening in The Royal Shot, particularly in 4th Quarters. That, in turn, translated to even more lost Playoff games for The King. And, of course, there were also those elusive butterflies of an NBA Ring and The King’s general “Happiness” to consider too.

    Anyway, when all was said and done, The King had to make up his mind!

    So “The Decision” was made. And The King announced it. And guess what? Cleveland lost.

    As The King put it:

    “In this fall… this is very tough… in this fall I'm going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.”

    The King wasn’t really too worried about local Cleveland fan reaction to The Decision. He knew that his loving Cleveland-based subjects would sympathize and understand "The Decision." Their King, after all, had a need for True Happiness. Sure, The King’s royal coffers contained millions and his subjects adored him. But money and fan adoration aren't everything a King needs. A King needs Rings!

    Yes, the King needed more! The King had an immediate and burning desire to start acquiring the many, many NBA championship Rings true Kings acquire! And getting "happy" and getting Rings was just not possible in Cleveland. True fans of The King would know this. True fans of His Highness would empathize. True fans of The King would simply say “Bon Voyage, O Mighty Anointed One!” and wish their beloved King their very best as he went elsewhere to quest for lotsa Rings!.

    And, when all was said and done, it wouldn’t really be “goodbye” to Cleveland. LeBron’s departure would really be more like an “Auf Wiedersehen!” See, as The King pointed out, his subjects could always watch His Royal Progress on their little TVs and, what's more, The King would continue to keep one of his royal palaces in Akron, just 40 miles away, so his subjects would know he always sort of remained close by. So it wouldn’t be like The King would be totally gone. All would not be lost! Clevelanders could still worship their beloved ruler whenever he happened to be visiting his Akron palace! The King put the prospects of future contacts with his Cleveland fan subjects better than I do here:

    “You know, [the Cavs’ fans] can have mixed emotions, of course, but it's going to be a lot of emotions not understanding why. And then you're going to have the real friends who love me for who I am. For me being from Akron, Ohio, and loving Akron, Ohio, it's always home for me. I'm still going to live there, always be home. And Akron, Ohio is always home for me and that area.”


    And as The King predicted, his true fans (the ones with his best interests at heart!) took his departure well:

    http://tinyurl.com/klj9jeq

    http://tinyurl.com/l3c2r4r

    http://tinyurl.com/m98tkcs

    The Cavs’ management understood too, and despite his abdication, bade their departing King lachrymose best wishes and gave him a profound and heartfelt adieu.

    http://tinyurl.com/24f3uw6

    Well, you all know the rest of the story. The King DID take his act to Miami where he honed his skills and after an initial bump in the road (A Finals loss to Lord Dirk of Nowitzki), eventually flopped his way to an NBA championship in 2012.

    Yes, The King now has a Ring! And Miami suddenly had a “Great Team!

    And you know what? The King is still The King, only in South Beach and not Cleveland. And The King’s royal story has a happy ending!

    The End!

    Postscript: Strangely, there are some in Cleveland that are pulling for the Pacers tonight. I wonder why?

    AREA 55 NEWS YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK!!!!!

    Salutations 55ers!

    We couldn’t get it done Sunday and the Heat are now up 2-1. Their strategy now is to have LeBron post low and dare us to double him while his underpaid bit players throw up threes. On Sunday, Udonis Haslem, left uncontested, awoke and got hot. LeBron hit 4 or 5 baseline hooks. Battier, Bosh, Allen finally started contributing and all hit 3s.

    PG had his first bad game. The Pacers missed 14 free throws. And the refs let Miami foul and flop with impunity. Everything went wrong for us. It was one of those games.

    Now it’s Game 4. Frank Vogel is no dope. He’ll have a strategy planned to try to cope with the Heat. But we all know that BLF has to be a lot more of a home court for our guys than it was Sunday in Game 3.

    Truth told, I’m really very upbeat about our chances tonight.

    We ordinarily rebound from bad games. Our team is pretty steady and won’t let what happened to them Sunday carry over into tonight. My guess is that tonight’s game will bring us a much stronger Pacers effort and also a more focused home crowd. The loafered polo-shirt types that came to Sunday’s game on a lark following a day of tanning at the Track will not be so much in evidence tonight. The fans tonight will likely be more local basketball people coming to BLF to back the Pacers. The checkerboard Speedway featured T-shirting scheme that worked so poorly Sunday has been abandoned. It’ll be another Gold Out - something that will serve to unify the crowd and that has brought us good things in the past.

    Joey Crawford’s officiating crew (Crawford, Ronnie Moll, and Derrick Stafford) will be calling the game. This is a plus. Crawford’s no great shakes, but he’s impartial. We’ll likely see a better and more evenly officiated game than we got from the bozos on Sunday. Moreover, CBS has belatedly picked up on D-Wade’s act and is now rightly calling him on all his slimy fouling and flopping (See the article here: http://tinyurl.com/ns6n3nm). This is also a plus because games are not refereed in a vacuum.

    Therefore my best guess is that we should see a lot more basketball tonight, and a lot less of the extra-curricular cheap shots and acting from Miami than we’ve had to go through previously. I think that too works in our favor.

    We have to once again be loud and strong for our guys. We need to get the crowd into it too.

    So here’s how we do it:

    1. We have to be in our seats at least 10 minutes before tip-off. We need to start chanting before the game even starts. Get your food and drink before-hand. We all have to be on one page tonight. We can’t go down 3-1 at home to the Heat

    2. Our chanting needs to be focused and in unison. The guys in front have to start it and the people in back have to be watching and listening to see what the chants are. We also have to be smart and listen for the organ and the drum-line so that we are in sync and aren’t running counter to something else going on from a noise standpoint in the arena.

    3. Our chants have to be simple and constant. We need to get the crowd into it. The crowd won’t understand what we do if it is too difficult to follow.

    4. We need to be extremely vocal when the Heat are shooting free-throws. This is especially so when their dirtiest players (Chalmers, Haslem, Battier, Cole and Wade) are at the stripe. This is our one opportunity to tell a nationwide audience who and what these slimeballs really are. Let’s really give it to them!

    Remember: Tonight’s game is very, very big. Everyone has to leave it all there tonight. We can beat Miami. We’ve done it once (very nearly twice) and the latest countervailing Heat win does not a whole Playoff series make. If we can pull even with Miami tonight, our guys are right back where we were when this whole series started. Then I like our chances.

    We can do this!

    To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of our Playoff demise have been greatly exaggerated. I expect that this will become a little more apparent to the world of professional basketball tonight.

    GO PACERS! GO AREA 55!

    Joe, I can loan you one of our Talking Bigheads with the dry erase board and give you a marker if that would help, but I would need to get it back after the game, and it would need to be under your supervision the whole time you have it. Look for me in the atrium before the pre-game show or stop by the G2 Zone if you want one.

    My boss in Denver just emailed me to tell me that "he's a flopper" had him rolling every time he heard it on the broadcast.
