I just finished up a piece from Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose via the Grantland Channel on Youtube. They had VERY high praise for our beloved Indiana Pacers. Such declarations as "Indiana is the #1 seed in the East." "They bring that old school Bad Boy Pistons attitude" and a long discussion about Paul George's MVP credentials and place among the league's elite players, they have him at #3, right behind KD. They also mentioned that LBJ and PG are by far the two best two-way players in the game and that it's "not even close" (ie whoever three is, is light years behind Paul and Bron). There was another bit about the Pacers being the ultimate foil for Miami. If you wrote a movie script for LBJ and Miami's three-peat quest, the Pacers would be the antagonist you'd choose. A big strong rim protector upfront, a two way freak show to chase LeBron around and make him work on both ends and the supporting cast and attitude the Pacers bring. Bill Simmons ends by saying, "The Indiana Pacers WILL win 70 games. It's going to be a hell of season and I'm looking forward to it."
Link to part 1/4, if you time (close to two hours) I recommend all four. Sure, there's alot of goofy crap. That's to be expected from Grantland, but Bill S. is mostly entertaining and Jalen Rose is always great.
