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?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. 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)

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub: Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:
