Paul George delivers great line about driving by Kobe Bryant

The Pacers defended their home court on Monday, beating the Lakers 89-87 thanks in part to some late game heroics from Paul George. George scored 14 points in the first half, but was quiet for much of the second half. All seven of his points in the second half came with less than two minutes to go. Two of those points came when George got the ball beyond the three-point and drove...

Indiana Pacers Rookie Myles Turner Doesn't Care Who The So-Called "King" Is

Royalty is meant to be revered. It is meant to be respected, honored, and definitely never questioned. However, in today's society we are all about questioning authority figures, and knocking them down a peg or two whenever possible.

Getting to know the future star of the Indiana Pacers

As the NBA All Star weekend draws near, one name that will not be called in the Rising Stars Challenge is Indiana Pacers rookie forward Myles Turner.

Ex-Laker: Kobe Bryant sucker punched me over $100

Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Samaki Walker was once punched in the face by Kobe Bryant. When the incident took place in 2002, then-coach Phil Jackson downplayed it. “It’s just kid’s play, it’s juvenile stuff,” Jackson said at the time. “This is an isolated incident. To be honest, I didn’t feel it was of any importance, but there was a noticeable mark on Samaki...

If the Indiana Pacers are going to slide, then at least it will be entertaining.

The Strange Path Of C.J. Miles

C.J. Miles sits on the baseline at TD Garden. The Indiana Pacers have just finished a late-morning practice and trainer Josh Corbeil wraps a bag of ice around one of Miles' ankles. It's nothing serious, just a bit tender. If you aren't getting wrapped in the NBA, you're not playing hard enough. He won't turn 29 until April, but Miles is already a veteran of 11 NBA seasons.

Paul George and the NBA's lost comeback player award

This NBA season, there are many comeback stories. Kevin Durant and Chris Bosh come to mind for making profound comebacks from injury and health scares, respectively.
