    Default I'm unlocking the vault...anybody interested?

    Over the years I've collected a massive amount of old NBA games, roughly 2 TB worth. Last year I decided to start sharing them at my Pistons forum little by little, via dropbox.

    After discussing it with Able, I've decided to open up the doors here at PD, assuming enough people are interested.

    Just a few simple guidelines.

    1. Not going to post anything more recent than 5 years. Also if the NBA is already selling it to my knowledge I'm going to respect that, so don't ask for anything from the Pacers greatest games DVD. This means No Pacers/Knicks 1994 game 5, no Pacers/Knicks 1995 Game 1, no Pacers/Bulls 1998 game 4, and no Pacers/Knicks 2000 game 6

    2. I'm going to do one game a week at most. When I post a new one, the old one gets taken down, and the link will no longer work.

    3. Suggestions are always welcome. It's not as if I have a set release schedule, so first come first serve. 90% of what I have are playoff games, but I have a decent number of regular season stuff, especially from the 90's. No harm in asking.

    How about Game 6 of last year's Eastern Conference Finals? I'm in the mood to see the Pacers knock the snot out of a good team. Plus I was at that game

    I only say this cuz you post here so often that I just assumed that this was the only forum that you post on.

    I feel like I just found out that I was cheated on.....but....duh, you're a Pistons fan...so it would only make sense that you post on a Pistons forum.

    For "older" Pacer fans, I think that the Reggie Miller 57 point game would be fun to watch. Other games I can think of:

    1991 Playoffs: Pacers vs Celtics- whichever game had Person and Bird lighting it up

    Maybe game 1 vs Orlando in 1994- this was the game that got us rolling in the post season

    I would personally like to see some Pacers games from the late 80's, particularly against the Nique/Spud Hawks. I always liked watching that Atlanta team.

    "I'm unlocking the vault...anybody interested..." I said that at a party once, my wife wasn't pleased.

    But seriously, it would be cool if you had Game 6 of the Pacers-Hawks Eastern Conference Semis, 1994. Also, an oft-forgotten but good one is Pacers-Celtics EC First Round, Game 4, 1991.

    I misunderstood the first rule. I'm down for Reggie's 57 point game.

    Yeah, I have all of those games, but they're on big DVD files. I'm not technically inclined enough to understand how to re-format them into something smaller and easier to upload.

    re: the 1994 Pacers/Hawks series, I have games 3 and 4 but that's it.

    1991 Pacers/Celtics I've got the whole thing.

    DVD ISO files. I collect these things however I can get them, and sometimes the only way I can get them is in DVD format.

    Most of my games are in smaller avi format (roughly 1/3 the size of DVD files) and much easier to move.

    OK, I randomly picked something out as an example:

    Game 2 of the 1994 series between Indiana and Orlando

    Not very different from game 1, really. Just no Byron Scott heroics at the end.

    Have you looked into a program like Handbrake to help compress the larger files down?

    There should be several free .iso to .avi converters out there if you feel like converting stuff. Download and install the converter, import the .iso, set the output conversion to .avi, and convert.

    AVI is probably the best file container for sharing NBA games and is playable on pretty much everything that plays digital video files.

    I dabbled in that a few years back. I could never get the files to convert properly. Even the ones that went through didn't decrease in size.

    Do you have Pacers vs. Bucks, November 15, 1986?

    Random, but this was the first Pacers game I ever attended and was won on a last second shot by John Long. That's about all I remember of it.

    Would also like to re-watch Shaq's first game against the Pacers in Indianapolis. He scored 49 points, I think, but the Pacers still won.

    Jordan's first game back? NBA on NBC against the Pacers.

    The game against the Kings where Dale Davis fought Michael Smith?
    These aren't all must-have, just throwing out some highlights that come to mind.
