    Keep in mind, if Wade sits out, odds are Hibbert will start. Vogel makes that choice, and I'd have to think he'd go with his own guy, especially with no true big man starting for the East.

    Why isn't anyone discussing the fact that Wade might have a condition called "drop foot." Am I the only one who knows how serious that condition can be? Seriously. Go do some research.

    My guess is that a lot of the diagnosed people with such a problem have underlining problems much more severe so unless Wade had a stroke I won't bother reading up on drop foot.

    It's still a nerve issue that has caused complete numbness in his foot to the degree where he can't even walk on it, or lift the heel. Nerve issues are very sensitive. My understand is that they can be caused by hip, or lower back issues. Which might develop from favoring knees, and can be a result of rehabs for knee issues. There are very little instances in which a nerve problem which causes complete loss of function of your foot can be a very, very quick fix. Or an intermittent issue. I'd have a small amount of concern for the guy.

    I heard on the radio that this will be the first time since 1996 that there won't be a Laker in the all star game. That was the year before they got Shaq and Kobe.

    He might be able to take oral corticosteroids. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation could be used, yes. Direct not necessary if the nerve is really functioning.

    Both procedures could be done in the short term, and might work if the issue isn't a major problem. However, he's probably screwed in the short term. It isn't usual for drop foot to just happen. And, nerves don't generally bounce back quickly once the muscle performance is involved. In some cases, simple sitting CAN lead to creep-type stresses on annular ligament and potentially lead to non-painful root issues. Which, as we all know, D Wade has been sitting for quite some time this year. Maybe he's doing more harm than good for himself by sitting out all those games.

    Hopefully he sits. Roy starts. And Lance is able to book a flight to the All Star game. Wishful thinking, I know. But one can dream.

    Then he should have gotten the nod of DeRozan. The 28-24 Raptos will have as many All Stars as 40-12 Pacers. But winning games is a premium.....

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Interesting to say the least but shouldn't they have opted for someone a tad more respectable like Ernie Johnson even Kenny Smith would've been more polished.

    http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...od-as-anybody/


    During TNTs pregame coverage of the NBA All-Star Game Sunday, they will broadcast an interview with Charles Barkley and President Barack Obama. So Barkley naturally asked about LeBron and Jordan. Naturally. Here is the baller-in-chiefs answer, courtesy TNT.

    You know LeBron. I know LeBron. When you are standing next to him, and then you watch him close up, Ive never seen somebody that size, that fast, who can jump that high, who is that strong, who has that much basketball savvy all in one package.

    So we dont yet know where he is going to be. Now, Im a Chicago guy and Mike will always be the guy, for me, just because that was a magical moment for the city. And he was a champion. Mike is now retired. LeBron, when you look at him, you think he might be able to play at a high level for another seven, eight, 10 years. Hes 29 years old. In terms of every aspect of the game, LeBron has a chance to be as good as anybody.

    I don't have a concern for him at all but unless it comes playoff time and he is sitting then I will think its an issue but until then we have no way of knowing.

    Paul George said today that he feels he's in the conversation right next to Kevin Durant & LeBron James for MVP. #BTHype

    Hmmmm....
    Paul George needs to look at the stat-sheet, he hasn't carried a game for a while. Lets pose this situation, put PG on OKC right now, OKC isn't winning as many games without westbrook.

    Well, he did carry us early in the season. For this team, he probably is MVP. He's our leading scorer.

    Dropfoot. That sounds like some kind of ******** excuse for his traveling.

    PG is the best player on the best team. That player is always (and should be) in the conversation for MVP.

    He's had a tough couple of weeks, but Pacers Digest has been way too harsh.

    They dont have the best record anymore.

    There's Durant and LeBron, then there's a Grand Canyon-sized gap, and then there's everyone else.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    Paul is not in the conversation for MVP. If we finish with the top record he may get a vote or two based on that, but as stated here. There's KD, Lebron, and then everyone else. And it's not even close right now

    Yeah, especially since the team is ridiculously capped out unless Bargs/Amar'''''''''e opt out of their contracts this summer or they can trade them for next to nothing. Unless Melo thinks they'll know what to do with their cap space 16 months from now.
