Donnie Walsh has no idea if Larry Bird will return as president of the Indiana Pacers. Walsh spoke with Bird shortly before the playoffs began and didn't glean anything about his plans. “I told him he should come back, but he didn't really give me an answer, so I said that's the last time I was going to ask,” Walsh said. “And it was.” The Sacramento Kings are interested in Bird leading their front office. Should Bird take the job, he would face a rebuilding job even greater than the one he spearheaded with the Pacers. “It takes a lot of courage to go do it the first time,” Walsh said. “Do you want to do it again and rebuild the team? It won't be fun. It's not fun. And you're going to lose (for awhile).” Walsh is willing to resume retirement if Bird returns to the Pacers front office. “The only way I'd come back is if (Bird) would say, 'I need you to help me with this,' or something like that,” Walsh said. “I know I could do that. In that role you ...

Video of the Week: #RoyHibbertChallenge

While watching game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, I think we all started getting sidetracked from the blowout and started watching the other random things going on in the game. I mean who didn’t notice the ridiculous outfit that Justin Beiber was wearing (WHY DO YOU NEED SUNGLASSES INDOORS?) or Flo Rida’s Jesus Piece, which was about as big as my head. Yet, the most talked...

Danny Granger ‘probably’ a starter with Pacers

We found out earlier this week that small forward Danny Granger expects to return as a starter for the Indiana Pacers despite missing all but five games this season and the fact that the team did so well without him. Coach Frank Vogel didn’t rule that out, but he also only told reporters – including Zac Keefer of The Indianapolis Star – that Granger would “probably” return...

Roy Hibbert thanks the Heat on Twitter

(Credit: zimbio.com) Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert made the world take notice when his squad pushed the favored Miami Heat to seven games in the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals. Hibbert’s character also shone through on several occasions. It’s easy to see he’s a humble, intelligent guy who’s worked himself to the bone to get to where he is. While Roy Hibbert can only...

Strippers Upset Lance Stephenson Didn’t Make it Rain at KOD after Game 7 (Photos)

Considering the Pacers laid a humongous egg in Game 7 against the Heat, I am inclined to say the team didn’t deserve any stripper love. But, it is a long season, so it’s reasonable if you are already in South Beach, you might as well hit up King of Diamonds to let some young lady twerk your sorrows away. The strippers though at KOD weren’t that happy with Lance Stephenson....

Pacers Lance Stephenson hit up “King of Diamonds” following game 7 loss to Heat

Pacers Lance Stephenson had a breakout series against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. Following the game 7 loss on Monday, Stephenson did what many visitors with extra coins do in Miami, hit up “King of Diamonds.” But Stephenson, who was a second round draft pick by the Pacers in 2010, earns about $800K a season so he’s doing the smart thing and being a tad...

Roy Hibbert Plans to Display Framed Pictures of Block of Carmelo Anthony in ‘Man Cave’ (Photo)

The Indiana Pacers’ season is over, so apparently Roy Hibbert has time to do a little decorating of his “man cave.” The Pacers center tweeted a photo Thursday night of two framed photos he received of his memorable blocked shot of New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals that he plans to hang up. The block was a signature moment...

'Melo buys art — then Hibbert seves it

Carmelo Anthony sports himself as a bit of an art aficionado. So does Roy Hibbert. We're not sure they should be sharing a studio anytime soon, though. First, on Tuesday night, Anthony, whose well-documented playoff failures have become exacerbated in recent times by the success of LeBron James, recently spent another free June reportedly dropping $27,000 on ... According to...

Hibbert posterizing his man cave with photos of epic block on Melo

Carmelo Anthony may never accept an invitation to Roy Hibbert's house but, if he does, the New York Knicks star might want to avoid his host's man cave. Hibbert, the Indiana Pacers' 7-foot-2 center who tormented the Knicks forward during the Eastern Conference semifinals, is planning on decorating his house with not one — but at least a couple — large, framed posters...

The Indiana Pacers expect an offseason of changes after their deep playoff run.

The Pacers definitely need to upgrade their point guard position.

Chris Andersen and the Evolution of Birdman

(Credit) Birdman and Rick Ross just released their joint LP, The H, which consists of songs from their intense 2008 collaborative recording sessions; still, not too many people are talking about that Birdman, Rick Ross, or their album. Instead, in these playoffs, we’ve had Shaq’s calls of “Birdman, Birdman” resonate...
