    Well from the looks of this video, they handcuffed and took away the wrong guy!

    The guy with the Heat jersey should have been arrested just for wearing it.

    Yep, that was in section 2. I caught the aftermath, and several of the people in the video (including the guy in the Heat jersey) were escorted out.

    I'm surprised that the guy with the Heat jersey was still there. They leave with the outcome of Pacers - Heat games still in doubt, don't they?

    Fact: Most of the dorks you see in Heat jerseys at Pacers games in Indiana are just tools from somewhere in Indiana or the Midwest (generally not the Indy area) that are lame bandwagon fans. Very few are from Miami.

    Best thing was the dude walking out behind me in a Lebron jersey yelling about how there's a whole lot of dick riders in Indiana.

    Oh without question. These are the a lot of the same tools who show up sporting Laker merch when they're at the peak of their powers. There's no way that most of these clowns were watching Heat games back in 2008 when they were stinking up the joint.

    The Bulls fans who invade the Fieldhouse are generally disgusting human beings, but I can at least respect the fact that they are loyal Bulls fans who are making the trip down from Northern Indiana and Chicago. But these Heat fans are just there to be "different" and get under people's skin. The Knick fans who show up are generally loyal fans since a "front running" Knicks fan is sort of an oximoron.

    Nah, a lot of the Bulls fans are exactly the same way. Sure, some come from Chicago, but a large portion of them buy their D-Rose jersey tees and show up. Same people that cheer for all the front running teams.

    Lakers fans are my least favorite by far. You have zero connection to L.A., just a Kobe fan boy, but you've been a Lakers fan all your life.

    It's just kind of hard to tell with Bulls fans. It doesn't take too far to cross into Chicago fan territory once you head north on 65. Once you pass Lafayette, which isn't very far, you are firmly entrenched amongst the Northern Indiana Chicago wannabees. Nowadays, I think that most of the Bulls fans are people making the trip on 65 from Northern Indiana. But there's no doubt that there are still some Indy holdovers from the Jordan frontrunner days. Every NBA city had a decent chunk of fans who rooted for Jordan.

    Northern Indiana is in Indiana, not Chicago, but that isn't clear to some people apparently.

    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?

    It isn't. They think they are in a Chicago suburb.

    Well these people get Chicago TV stations and many of them in the far North Indiana cities work in Chicago. They have far more connection to Chicago than they do Indianapolis. It's just like how people in New Jersey identify with all of the New York teams.

    I fully understand tribalism, but I do not understand picking the "best" tribe and then running with them just to get an ego-boost.

    They are also in Central time to match Chicago, not Eastern to match Indy.

    Much of the blame for these Chicago fans is the failure of the Pacers and FSI to bring them into the foal. I would like to see the Pacers coverage be on TV from Cinn. to Louisville and Lexington as well as north to at least the state line. IMO, these are fertile ticket and merch markets and we should cultivate them.

    Pacers can't market themselves, what, 70miles outside of Indy? That's the real problem.

    If I had to sit next to those clowns who cheered every time Miami scored (it thoroughly pissed me off how audible it was on TV) I would have found it hard not to go Dwyane Wade on one of them too.

    I used to go to concerts quite often in Merrillville, IN at the Star Plaza Theater right off 65. One time I wore my Colts gear and felt like a fish out of water. There was Bears stuff everywhere. I thought to myself.....what is wrong with these people? They forgot where they live apparently


    I give them a little credit though. This was when the Colts were dominating with Manning. Would have been so easy to jump to a winner and the team you should have been supporting in the first place.

    Just about every Bears fan I've ever encountered from northwest Indiana hates the Colts. And I mean HATES them. They all feel like the Bears were Indiana's team until the Colts arrived on the Mayflower. Then you have to consider Colts' games are shown on TV instead of Bears games, the Colts win a lot, and oh yeah, beat them in a Super Bowl too.

    Things are definitely improving Pacers-wise in NE Indiana. I have been a BnG fan my whole life, as well as my family--some distant, included--but I remember being younger and I was about the only one in middle school, high school, etc. I teach college courses up here now, and many of my students are Pacers fans. I can't attest to whether they are bandwagon or not, but they are starting to exist again.

    P.S. I loathe Chicago sports teams to the point of hate.

    There was still about two minutes or so left. This happened when Turner turned it up on the floor.
