Now, as for the “Gold Swagger.” It’s about getting knocked down and getting back up again. It’s about earning their keep and similar to Blue Collar, playing with a chip on their shoulder and proving to all of the big market teams that we are serious and mean business. We are not New York or Miami or LA and I’m glad we aren’t. Those teams are everything I hate about the NBA. They are the showboating, no defense, dunk all night, bandwagon fans, and shell out tons of money teams that I can’t stand. The Pacers play as a team, they make that extra pass, and they win as a team. They play a style of play I’m not sure other teams could play because these other teams are too full of egos.
I for one enjoy the way the Pacers play. I’d like it a little more if they’d not have games like game two in New York with so many turnovers but you can’t win them all. I hope everyone has had a great weekend. If you are in Indy, find a way to get some tickets and pack the fieldhouse for game four on Tuesday night. Also, if you are bored on Saturday and would like to watch some really good college lacrosse, the Denver Pioneers will be playing North Carolina at Lucas Oil Stadium in the NCAA Quarterfinals. Have a great week everyone!
