They were embarrassed in New York. The Indiana Pacers’ attitude and play during the disheartening and embarrassing loss Tuesday to the mediocre Knicks had to be dealt with before they could get on their flight home. As a team, the Pacers decided to have a long conversation about the future of their season inside the visitors’ locker room in Madison Square Garden. “We had a good sit down,” point guard Jeff Teague said. “I think it did us some good. People got things off their chest that needed to be off their chest and I think it worked out. It was good talk for everybody, something we needed.”

After the Los Angeles Lakers selected Lonzo Ball with the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, team President Magic Johnson said Russell played well but stressed that he needed a leader as his point guard. Given that Johnson is one of the greatest ever to play the position, the sting might have really hurt Russell. But his turbulent time in Los Angeles is over, so the only voices Russell are listening to are in Brooklyn. “It’s good to be here. I can’t really control that, what they say,” Russell said Monday. “I’m gone. It’s the past. I’m here now. It’s irrelevant, honestly.”
“I think everybody’s going to question what happened in the past with the whole Nick Young so forth,” Marks said. “But as I said before, I’m not really concerned about that, because I think if any one of us looked in our little dark secret of closets there would be things that we would be embarrassed about and wish we could take back. So again, I’m going to bet on this group, from Kenny, the coaching staff, they’ve done a terrific, terrific job of developing these guys.”
