Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose Take on the Indiana Pacers

It’s one thing for me to sit here and type all the reasons why the Indiana Pacers will be as good as they should be. It’s another thing for fans to have high expectations and believe strongly in this team. But it’s even another thing to see where the Pacers hold serve in terms of outside the local market. What does national media think of this team? What are other people talking up for this team? That’s where Bill Simmons of Grantland comes in. Jalen Rose and he have been breaking down all the NBA teams, and forecasting where they’ll be.

This is where the Indiana Pacers stand in line with Jalen and Bill’s look. Sitting pretty at number four isn’t too bad at all. Like I said, I can’t remember the last season when expectations and what people are saying about this team have been so high. With this video, you’ll see plenty of Larry Bird references thanks to Bill Simmons’ Boston Love. You’ll hear Jalen talk up the hot spot to be in Indy. He used to be an Indiana Pacer, and a large contributor for the team during those late 90s. I really like the chemistry between these two guys as it’s that more conversation about the Pacers, and not just spouting out facts, figures, stats about why the Pacers will be good.
