    Oh, no, it's not off topic at all.  When we come to the Patriots football blog, we love to see posts about the Indianapolis Pacers.  It's totally relevant, just like 99% of your dopey "I love everything Indiana" posts.

    Quinn Buckner, anyone?

    I saw "Hoosiers".... great flick! I also spent a week there one day.

    Methinks "6" has no appr4ciation on just how dismal it is there. Needs to get out and about more often. Like crossing the frontier into Chicago occasionally.....

    traveled plenty AZ - even left the state for a few years.  Indiana is home, born, raised, and family is here.  Roots are important. 

    For the record - I happen to love Boston, the city.  The importance of the city to American History cannot be diminished.  Been to the Cape twice - love it too.  As for Arizona, The GC is possibly the most awe inspiring landscapes in our county.  Sedona is beautiful - stayed at the Enchantment resort outside of Sedona - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

    Was in Chicago 4 days ago. 

    You left off Walter McCarty and Rick Fox.

    [/QUOTE]

    Couldn't resist the need to take a shot at Indiana. AFter all, everyone's got to be from SOMEPLACE, no matter what. Many a Townie stays local because that's where the roots are found. Me? I bailed out for sunny AZ 34 yrs ago. Then, 2 yrs ago, I got a job transfer to Amish Country, PA. It was either here, Riverside, CA, or Dallas. Lancaster, PA seems more digestible. I look at it this way: 2 yrs down, 8 to go till retirement. Then, back to sunny AZ. 

    Worst part of being here is that it's like a sports purgatory...... Pittsburgh to the west (although it was nice to finally see the Pirates break thriugh last season), Philthydelphia to the east (Philthydelphia = dismal sports, but obnoxious fans), Washington/Baltimore to the south (We're right on the cusp of great things!), and "everything NY" a few hundred miles to the north. So, I guess, Indianapolis can't be THAT bad.

    I don't care where Stevens is from but I have been disappointed in how good he has done. This is not a contradiction. I was really counting on a top 5 pick this year since everyone seems to think this will be the deepest draft in years. Stevens may single handedly be causing the Celtics some long term mediocrity. In the NBA if you coach your team up to the 7th or 8th seed you kill yourself in the long term. I'm sorry but that is often true. You need to develop young tradeable pieces like  they did with Al Jefferson before the Garnett trade and while I thinke Ainge is an above average evaluator it's hard getting diamonds in the rough with these late picks like he has done so often. As much as I hated the Pierce trade when it happened it looks genius right now though I think a healthy Rondo would have got the Celtics past the Knicks no problem last year that lineup would never have beaten the Heat.

    [/QUOTE]
    Come now - this sounds like you are rooting for tanking. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Of course. I don't have a problem with it if it helps you get a Kevin Durant or Andrew Luck. Give the scrubs more minutes than they deserve. They will try to win while being unable to. I never said the Colts were the only team to attempt that. The NBA is notorious for it. Usually 4 or 5 teams are trying it every year. The 38-44 8th seed is a horrible spot to be in the NBA. In the west right now the 8th seed may win 50 games but in the east it may take only 35 wins to make the playoffs. The Celtics knew Bird was going to stay in school in 79 when they drafted him so they sort of tanked that season also and it worked out just fine. Until the NBA turns into soccer and teams get relegated there is no gain in being the 4th worst team in the league over the 3rd worst.

    [/QUOTE]
    except that you would be wrong about the colts.

    [/QUOTE]

    Yeah, I don't think so, the Colts sucked for Luck. Good for them if the Pats were in that position I would have wanted the same thing. I haven't criticized the Colts for doing it. It was a smart move. One horrible year to get 10 potentiel great ones. Where is the sacrifice?

    [/QUOTE]
    And yet I still disagree.  The colts tried to win their games.  They just were bad.

    should bring this to the celts forum, but surpringsly Stevens is doing a great job for what he has. our team is 10-13 and i thought it'd be only 5-6 wins at this point. i just didn't think there would be this muc talent. jordan crawford, AB, sully and jeff green all playing consistent good ball. Humphries isnt bad either.

    problem is... idk if the celtics finishing in the middle of the pack is a good thing for their future. i love seeing them winning though! good season so far!

    [/QUOTE]
    Yeah it should be on the celts forum, but I spend my time here.  I am happy for Stevens although not surprised that he is doing well.  Its not like he ever had blue chippers for recruits yet took 2 teams to the final game. 

    He's got a quiet enough demeanor to never be the story.  His attitude is positive and his basketball mind is as strong as any.  There will obviously be an NBA learning curve for him, but as its stands now, he's been much better than Pitino or Calipari in the pros. 

    Happy for you guys getting a great coach. 

     

    [/QUOTE]

    You are happy the Celts hired a coach?  Why?   You're a Pacers fan. That makes no sense.

    [/QUOTE]

    I love Brad Stevens.  He's a hoosier - just like Larry Bird. I don't just root for laundry.  people like that (you) are shallow.

    [/QUOTE]

    Stay in Indiana.

    Face it, loser:  You wish you were born and bred here. You have no tradition. Nothing.

    It's why you come here looking for approval.

    [/QUOTE]
    Maybe you are not as dumb as you seem.  You were smart enough to walk away from your previous debacle of a post.  You are learning, grasshopper.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Me pointing out to you that you're a puppy dog in a Mickey Mouse pro sports town comging here for approval means I am walking away from previous posts?

    Wake us win you knock the Heat off in the postseason. Leave it to you to get giddy early. LOL

    You did the same thing back in Sept and Oct with the Colts. Now look at ya.

    [/QUOTE]
    OMG - lay off the crack rusty. 

    [/QUOTE]

    ^This is a backpedal from you.  

    Did you not get giddy early with the Colts? See, this is what I mean about you. You try to come in here and play with the big boys and you can't handle it.

    [/QUOTE]

    Russ - I am still giddy about the colts.  They aren't a good team yet found a way to beat Seattle, SF, and Denver (arguably the 3 best teams in the NFL).  For a guy that talks about context all of the time, you sure do have a convenient way of forgetting everyone else's while expecting us to remember yours. 

    BTW you are chatty early in the season, late in the season, in the preseason, in the postseason and in the offseason.  I wouldn't go busting anyone's balls for being happy about their team's success. 

    You of all people are the worst kind at this.  If you are not choking on Belichick, you are crapping on every other team in the league.  No one talks bigger or more than you.  Which is why you are such an easy target.  You are wrong so often.

    Hey, you'll probably get a couple more with that new coach of yours, but not for a while - after the pacers have had their run.

    So how do you handle AZ in the summer when its 105 degrees?  Anyway, here's to you getting back there sooner than later.  It appears that you are surrounded by all of those cities you would love to hate from a fan perspective, although I agree it was nice to see the Pirates succeed, hard to root against a team who's suffered for so long.
