The Pacers are prickly against other teams despite losing two of their offensive stars over the summer. They defeated the Miami Heat — with Chris Bosh — on Wed. night, 106-95, and George Hill was a big reason why.

We’ve written quite a few pieces about the headache Lance Stephenson has become for the Charlotte Hornets. Right now, the three-year, $27 million deal he signed this past offseason has to be in the running for the worst new contract of the summer. But with the team looking to move him — after clashes with teammates and less-than-stellar performances on the court — before the Feb. deadline, his old team has come up as a possible destination. Except, how do his former teammates feel about his return? Some seem against it, while others are less so, with a majority of them probably falling somewhere in between. Read More »

But fans of the team might find comfort in knowing that George Hill has been having a great summer.

A refreshingly large number of NBA teams have upped their Twitter ante recently, adding photoshops, memes, and general engagement to common posts of team updates and franchise promotions. Many killed it earlier this summer with #NBASitcoms, an amusing exercise in combining the names of players and beloved television shows. It’s seemed inevitable in the interim that #NBAMovies was soon to follow, and today teams finally made good on that certainty. Read More »

Pacers general manager and greatest small forward of all time (at least through next week) Larry Bird held court with reporters yesterday after exit interviews with the team and opened up about Frank Vogel and most of the Pacers roster, which he wants to keep together.
