We are both the literal and figurative underdog in this matchup of good vs. evil (Knicks vs. Pacers) and already the hacks at NBA.com and other websites are already looking forward to being able to split their time between New York & South Beach.
Steve Aschburner in his NBA.com preview for the series has already determined that this is THE metropolis vs. the fly over country. We don’t even get the joy of being called Hicks this time, we’re not that important to him.
We are a nuisance, a speed bump on the way to the inevitable collision of star talent between the Heat and the Knicks.
Well we are something else entirely. We are the fly in the ointment and we are going to ruin the entire playoffs for some of these no talent *** clowns who are supposed to cover the NBA with an unbiased eye.
Oh sure they are giving us the respect that they have to give us knowing that we are the one team who can throttle their entire season, but believe me it is begrudgingly.
The fact that it takes us playing a team from New York to finally make national TV is insulting and enraging. We are better than that, hell we are better than them.
So for every Pacers fan who has ever suffered the indignity of being mocked for our fandom, for every Pacer who has suffered through playing on upper channels and not making the big time and for Danny Granger who has been so unfairly cast aside due to injury I say stand up Pacer fans, be heard.
Chinese Pacer fans stand up, Australian Pacer fans stand up, German, Spain and any other nation where there is a person who bleeds blue and sweats gold stand up!
Also because we are one here I invite members of the Sacramento King fandom to stand with us, Denver Nuggets fans stand with us any small market fan that can and want to, stand with us. This is for not only Indiana but we are taking the league back from the large markets and superstar driven teams. (Denver we’ll put Mello out of the playoffs for you, we got your back)
Let our voices be heard in one defying cry for freedom and the end of large market tyranny.
Let me hear you scream.
We aren't stopping until
