Pacers 2015 Draft Pick @ #11


  • Last time they had a lotto pick: Paul George
  • Last time they had the #11 pick: Reggie Miller
This one has all the excitement you could ask for...
  • many think the Pacers go with the guy originally projected in the top10, but now may be slipping down others draft boards:  Willie 'Trill' C. Stein
  • or the graduate, NCAA PoY, with 2 Final Fours, and he stretches the D (basically essential in today's game): Frank Kaminsky. 
  • there's equal competition from other bigmen, like Myles Turner and Bobby Portis. 
  • there's also 2 more* Indy-area drafted in the first round: Trey Lyles and RJ Hunter
Are the Pacers looking for a win-now guy or long-term/franchise guy? Scoring or Defense? Personality or Athleticism? Big or Small? Why not both?
  • there are point-guards like Cameron Payne, and Domer grad Jerian Grant
  • the player I'll be rooting for, after he stole my heart in the NCAA tournament this year: Samuel J. Dekker
* link does not include: Gary Harris, Gordon Hayward, E'Twaun Moore, Zach Randolph, Zellers, Plumlees and JJs

** Devin Booker's eyes freak me out

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro??

But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
