Larry Bird is trending on twitter. I wonder why? #Honesty

Scott Agness

#Pacers Vogel plans to take a larger role with the draft as the team has "an important pick." For once he has time for real film study.

Candace Buckner

On his assistant coaching staff, Vogel believes all three will return for next season. Which means more Dan Burke Halftime Truth Bombs!

Scott Agness

Paul George did have an MRI and it revealed just what they thought: a left calf strain. Not a serious injury.

Greg Rappaport

Pacers.com's @Mark Montieth with a 1-on-1 with Frank Vogel. http://t.co/4QcGrp9Put

Candace Buckner

"I'd expect him to opt in, he's got a good deal… it'll be speculative for me to make a guess like that." Vogel on Roy Hibbert.

Candace Buckner

Vogel's "gut" is telling him that David West will opt in. What does Vogel's gut tell him about Roy's plans? "Yeah, I really don't know."

Greg Rappaport

Offenses Vogel referenced when talking about smaller, uptempo teams: Spurs, Warriors, Hawks, Celtics.

Candace Buckner

Vogel on moving forward and preserving PFs: "We have to be mindful of David and Luis's age."

Candace Buckner

If Rodney Stuckey returns, Vogel still envisions him coming off the back. And that's what Rodney wants, actually. Told me same thing last wk

Candace Buckner

#Pacers started on Media Day in October talking about emulating #Spurs offense, now Vogel here in exit meetings drop the S-word.

Candace Buckner

Vogel said he believes another summer of rehab will take Paul George to 100 percent. "(Doctors) believe he'll be back to full strength."

Candace Buckner

Vogel's assessment on Roy Hibbert's season: "He's got to work on his craft, like all of us do. And he'll do that."

Scott Agness

Frank Vogel on the effects of playing smaller, faster: "There’s a possibility that Roy’s role will be diminished.”

Candace Buckner

Does new scheme mean Roy Hibbert will be benched, Vogel said: "Possibly." "Roy's role will be diminished." There it is again.

Candace Buckner

Vogel on playing smaller/faster: "I'm excited about it."

Greg Rappaport

"We're disappointed we didn't make the playoffs, I thought we had enough to make it, especially in the East." -Vogel

Candace Buckner

#Pacers coach Frank Vogel sits down and says into mic: "I agree with everything Larry said."

Greg Rappaport

Well, next season's offense should be pretty entertaining to watch. PG at the 4 reminds me of the 2012-13 Knicks with Melo at the 4.

Candace Buckner

More takes: Bird wants to see Paul George some at the 4 spot, believes #Pacers' title chances depend on PG's health.

Candace Buckner

Surprised to hear Bird wants to bring back Luis Scola, who turns 35 at end of month, and wants to play him more w/ West, who turns 35 in Aug

Candace Buckner

Quick takes from Bird: #Pacers need to play faster, if Roy opts in his role will change, Watson not returning, Stuckey a priority.

Scott Agness

Bird on CJ Watson, “I don’t think I’ll bring him back.” Injuries a big reason why… Just hasn’t been healthy.

Candace Buckner

Bird does not think he'll bring back C.J. Watson.

Candace Buckner

Bird on the draft: Basically said team has needs in every position. He does believe Shayne Whittington will be rotational player in future

Scott Agness

Larry Bird on the Pacers draft: “If we keep the pick, I think I’ll take the best player available.”

Candace Buckner

Bird on G Hill's year: "I thought it was great." First rave review for a player in his presser. "If you work hard, you're gonna get better."

Greg Rappaport

Can you be a title contender? "It depends on Paul George. I think we can be one of the best teams in the east." -Bird

Scott Agness

When asked if they can be a title contender next season, Bird says it depends on PG. “And, you got to be lucky to make it to the finals."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers title hopes? "Depends on Paul George," Larry Bird said.

Candace Buckner

Bird feels 1st round pick will be good enough to come in and help the team next year.

Candace Buckner

Bird said he and Vogel only recently spoke about playing faster (to score 3 or 4 points per game). Didn't discuss it with Roy in exit int

Scott Agness

Bird with a classic line on Hibbert’s struggles: “Well, I don’t think Lance is stealing his rebounds."

Candace Buckner

Bird emphasizes #Pacers want Hibbert here BUT… team will play smaller. Again, not looking good for the 7-2 rim protector.

Scott Agness

Bird wants to re-sign Stuckey. “I think we can get Rodney done. I think it’s important … We need guys like Rodney. He was a major plus."

Candace Buckner

Bird: "I think we can get Rodney done and I think it's important" for Rodney Stuckey to come back. "We need guys like Rodney."

Scott Agness

Bird says they’re not set in stone with the pick, say’s they’ll listen to offers … of course.

Greg Rappaport

Bird talked about how well the second unit moved the ball and how it contributed to them being the best scoring bench in the league.

Scott Agness

Bird hopes Luis Scola returns. “I hope so,” he said. “But you never know.”

Scott Agness

Interesting. Bird said some guys told him in his exit interviews that they didn’t care how much they got paid … they wanted to be here.

Candace Buckner

Bird said he "hopes so" in regards to bringing Luis Scola back to the #Pacers

Greg Rappaport

Bird says the genesis of the idea to play faster was when a fan sitting behind him said "Boy I wish they pushed the ball more." Larry agreed

Candace Buckner

If #Pacers make this change, it doesn't look good for slow and lumbering Roy Hibbert and his future in Indy.

Candace Buckner

Bird on Hibbert: "Whatever he does, he does. We'll assume he's going to come back." If he does, #Pacers still want to play different style

Scott Agness

Bird on Hibbert’s year: “I didn’t think he played that well, to be honest."

Scott Agness

When asked about Roy Hibbert and David West’s player options, Bird said “I have no clue.” Bird assuming both will be back.

Candace Buckner

Bird said he had "no clue" on whether Roy Hibbert and David West will opt in. Didn't ask in exit meetings but David spoke about "next year"

Scott Agness

One thing they’d like to do is trim David West’s minutes down. Also, “I would like to see Paul George play some 4,” Bird said.

Greg Rappaport

Interesting, Bird says team wants to play smaller at times, even considering playing PG at the 4 at times.

Candace Buckner

Bird said he'd like to change the #Pacers offensive style: play smaller, faster, score more points. Talked to Vogel about playing PG at 4

Scott Agness

Bird says they’d like to play faster next year, score more points and, at times, play a little bit smaller.

Greg Rappaport

Larry Bird says PG just experiencing some soreness from the calf, "Mentally it was a good start for him," he says of the comeback.

Candace Buckner

Bird on Paul George's 6-game comeback: "He's got a tough road ahead of him… hopefully when he comes back he'll be close to 100%."

Scott Agness

Larry Bird says Paul George was in yesterday, was sore. “I think mentally it was a good start for him."

Candace Buckner

#Pacers president of bkb operations Larry Bird said all 6 FAs said they wanted to be here; have to wait till summer to figure things out

Greg Rappaport

Watching 30 for 30 short reminds me one is to be done on Pacers telethon. I was called a few months ago to provide names of interviewees.

Scott Agness

Pacers' Shayne Whittington with 7pts (3-5 FGs), 6rebs, 2blks in 24mins tonight with @TheMadAnts in Game 1 of the conference finals.

Michael Pointer

The 6-3 Gardner led Kansas in scoring, rebounding, blocks and field-goal percentage this season. Was a first-team all-Big 12 choice.

Greg Rappaport

The Indiana Fever make their selection in the 2015 draft: Chelsea Gardner, a 6-3 forward and double-double machine.

Michael Pointer

Indiana Fever select Kansas forward Chelsea Gardner with the 21st pick in the WNBA Draft. #indianafever

Greg Rappaport

Jewell Loyd from Notre Dame gets picked #1 overall in this year's WNBA Draft. She nice.

Michael Pointer

I'm on WNBA and @indianafever draft duty tonight. Our local team has just one pick and it's No. 21 overall. Not a ton of drama this year.

Michael Pointer

With that in mind, let me put my journalistic objectivity aside for a minute just to yell: LET'S GO BLUES!!! Make this the year for the Cup.

Michael Pointer

I love the NCAA tournament, but the Stanley Cup playoffs remain my favorite event. The tension is almost unbearable.

Scott Agness

NBA and NBPA has agreed to HGH testing under the league’s anti-drug program.
