More Than Stats:
The 2013 Eastern Conference Finals wrapped up Monday night with the Miami Heat defeating the Indiana Pacers in a grueling 7 game series. What happen to the Pacers in game 7? they were very competitive all series, except for game 7. I felt the Pacers threw in the towel in the third quarter, from there on they were pretty much down by double-digits for the remainder of the game. Great series overall though, now Miami is off to the NBA finals for the 3rd straight year, but before we get there, let’s finish checking out some of the stylish looks from the Eastern Conference Finals. Whose look caught your eye?? Prints, prints, prints ! It’s such a big trend for men at the moment, Pacers guard George Hill went with a $56 AKOO Tapestry polo shirt (Sold out) on this night. The question is, what doesn’t come in camouflage now?? Check out the king James a.k.a Camouflage James, as he demonstrated the versatility of the camouflage print. Don’t sleep on Indiana Pacers center Ian Mahinmi style, I loved this unique tuxedo shirt he wore by French Deal. D-Wade toned the colors down a bit for this series, But still managed to give us something to talk about, Check out these fashionable $120 Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen tie-dyed Sweatpants Wade wore. Paul George complemented his silhouette with a ocean blue $150 Burberry polo shirt, and slim denims. Mike Miller strolled to the arena rocking a cool Stussy hat Norris Cole looked pretty stylish clothed in his off-white blazer jacket, paired with a crew neck tee. Great touch with the pocket square, which coordinated his ensemble. Chris Bosh is usually a suit and tie kind of guy, he switched it up just a bit here, going with denims and a light jacket. photos via niketalk/instagram/twitter/NBA

Paul George will become eligible for a contract extension this offseason and would become a restricted free agent in the 2014 offseason if a deal with the Indiana Pacers is reached.

GAME 7 DRAMA
Paul George had a message for Mario Chalmers after the Miami Heat guard tried flopping on him during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Indiana Pacers forward was dribbling beyond the 3-point line and deciding what he would do. As he backed up into Chalmers, Chalmers flopped, giving George a wide open look. [...]
The Heat do not flop. Just ask them.
Paul George must not have gotten the memo, though, because in the first quarter of Monday’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, the Pacers forward took umbrage with some of the Heat’s actions. After draining a 3-pointer over a tumbling Mario Chalmers, George jogged back down the floor and shouted in annoyance at the Heat guard.
The Pacers-Heat Series has been an absolute war. The two teams have grown to really hate each other over the course of their 7 game battle.
Aside from the back and forth play on the court, the talk off the court mostly surrounds the Heat’s propensity to massage calls by flopping and the emergence of everybody’s new favorite player, Paul George.
The two came together head...
As previously noted on this fair NBA website, the topic of flopping has been a hotly contested one in the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals and yet another instance of it came up in game seven of the series.
Watch as Indiana Pacers forward Paul George drains a three-pointer after Heat guard Mario Chalmers flops to attempt to draw the charge.
Then, read Paul’s lips on his way back...
Even though the Miami Heat are headed to the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year, Pacers guard Paul George proved he can play with the best of them. George called out Mario Chalmers after sinking a three pointer over the flopping Heat guard. A great series for the 23-year-old even if he was held to seven points on nine attempts in Game 7.

"He has a chance to be MVP of this...
Indiana Pacers guard Paul George yells at the Miami Heat's Mario Chalmers to "stop flopping" during their Game 7 showdown in the Eastern Conference Finals.
They were so close to the NBA finals. So close they could see it. They could feel it. They were packed for it.
But close was as far as the Indiana Pacers would get. At least this year.
On a side note, I wish Paul George would have taken a picture of his suitcase. I was dying to see what his finals wardrobe consisted of. Maybe I can contact his stylist. Or Krissy from...
As I predicted, Pacers/Heat has gone the distance to a seventh game. The series has basically played out exactly as I predicted. People doubted the Pacers ability to compete in this series because the Pacers hardly get any national attention. A simple look at the matchups made it quite clear that Pacers size would cause a small team such as Miami tons of problems. The Heat have...
