Video: Andrew Wiggins Shows Off All-Around Ability In Preseason Opener

Andrew Wiggins

It’s been an up-and-down summer for Andrew Wiggins. He was selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, then found out he would be playing with LeBron James. Except, he got dealt to the Timberwolves in August as part of a package — including Anthony Bennett — for the Cavs to acquire Kevin Love. If his first preseason game is any indication, we think ‘Wolves fans will *love* Wiggins just as much as they ever did their former power forward. Read More »

Paul George Says “It’s Very Possible” That He Could Play In 2014-2015

Paul George

We were pleasantly surprised when injured Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George showed up to media day earlier this week without crutches or even a sizable limp in his gait. Despite such incredible progress since his horrific August injury, though, we didn’t even entertain the idea that George might play in the 2014-2015 season. Apparently, that was a mistake.

Paul George Is Walking Without Crutches Or A Limp At Indiana Pacers Media Day

Paul George

It was less than two months ago that Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George suffered a horrific leg injury on national television while playing in the USA Basketball Showcase. It speaks volumes of the injury’s gruesome nature that the immediate reaction of many wasn’t wondering whether or not George would play basketball again, but if he’d be able to walk at all. Those knee-jerk responses proved wrong, thankfully, and George will make a full recovery in time to play for the Pacers in 2015-2016. Today, though, he deserves congratulations for managing to walk at Indiana’s media day without help or even a limp. Read More »

George Posts Photo Of Pacers At Hibbert’s Wedding With Hilarious Caption

This hasn’t exactly been an offseason to remember for the Indiana Pacers. They saw former team leader Danny Granger sign with an archrival, key young playmaker Lance Stephenson depart in free agency, and superstar Paul George suffer a devastating injury that left the entire league shaken. If any team is entitled to fun as training camp looms on September 30, it’s definitely the Pacers. And from the looks of things, they definitely had some this weekend at Roy Hibbert’s wedding.

Dime Q&A: C.J. Watson Talks Paul George, Pacers, And His New Role This Season

C.J. Watson

The Indiana Pacers’ prospects for the 2014-2015 season took a drastic turn in early August when superstar wing Paul George was lost for the year due to a broken leg. Combining George’s absence with the free agency departure of Lance Stephenson leaves the Pacers without their two top playmakers, making offense even more difficult for a team that labored as much as any on that end down the stretch of 2013-2014.

Of those players expected to pick up the scoring slack is guard C.J. Watson, who shored up one of his team’s biggest weaknesses last season by providing consistent two-way play off the bench. Watson took time from his busy offseason schedule recently to talk with Dime, and painted a measured, realistic picture of Indy’s adjusted place among the league hierarchy in 2014-2015. And if the Pacers defy expectations and emerge as legitimate threats in the Eastern Conference, you can bet an ultra-aggressive Watson will be helping to lead the charge. Considering Watson’s rare, winding, and unlikely path to such a rock solid career, we certainly wouldn’t be shocked if that ultimately proves the case. Read More »

Larry Bird, Paul George, 2013-14 Pacers

This morning’s bizarre barrage of tweets by Paul George bemoaning the indefinite suspension of Ray Rice for punching his then-fiancé has been met with some understated outrage — primarily because George apologized and removed the tweets. Still, Pacers president of basketball ops, Larry Bird, felt the need to address them in a statement released by the team. Read More »

Frank Vogel On George Hill: “Best Summer I’ve Ever Seen Him Have”

Steve Mitchell/ USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a less than ideal offseason for the Indiana Pacers. After consecutive Eastern Conference Finals appearances, Lance Stephenson left for Charlotte in free agency, and Paul George suffered a season-ending injury while playing for Team USA. Add to the fact that the other centerpiece of the team, Roy Hibbert, struggled mightily in the second half of last season, and there are a lot of question marks in Indiana. But fans of the team might find comfort in knowing that George Hill has been having a great summer. Read More »
