David West: "Coach is going to define some roles and try to get everybody in the most comfortable position to maximize their ability…"
David West: "We’ve got to figure out a way to get a competitive group on the floor and try to compete."
Observation from end of practice: W/ abt 20 on roster now, guys split into 3 teams & Stuckey/S. Hill formed blue team w/ 3 regular starters
CJ Miles had a strained calf in Sept., which Vogel said has healed & is fine. He sat out end of practice as they don't want him push thru it
Chris Copeland has been moved to small forward full time. Decision made a few weeks after Paul George went down.
Anyone that buys a ticket to see Neil Diamond and gives me a hard time for seeing an "old" Springsteen will receive my wrath forever.
Indiana is 16th in National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. Hosts No. 8 Saint Louis on Wednesday.
Rodney Stuckey and Solomon Hill rounded out the first unit with GHill, West, and Hibbert during the time media watched.
David West and Frank Vogel have a chat after practice. http://t.co/kMCP08VbJp
As expected, Paul George was back in the walking boot today. Yesterday he was sans boot but just for the photos
Paul George sits on the bench in practice gear (and with the boot on) on the first day of camp. http://t.co/n95U8b8JEA
When the Speedway took public money for the first time a couple of years ago, it lost me on the blackout. It's an archaic decision.
Here's the way I look at it: My Dad went to work every day for 36 years. I never once asked him what his office looked like.
My iPhone seems to be broken, I pressed the HOME button and I'm still at work- Paige
Woody Paige is hilarious
Bad news for my NBA media friends: Pacers no longer with baseline seats. Moving up here (17 seats) http://t.co/Pd8c6ubXXB
LaRon Landry suspended 4 games for PEDs.
There have been contract extension talks between Pacers officials and Vogel’s rep. Vogel feels “very good” about being here long term.
Media day activities
Hibbert referenced last yr's Spurs as offensive model. "They passed up shots just 2 get somebody else an open shot. I really respect that."
More media day nuggets: David West said initial plan was to get him under 30 minutes this season. But post-PG injury, that likely changes
Also, not to belabor the "no visible limp" point… I thought his gait was more similar to that of any basketball player's, not an injured man
To me, this is still pretty mindblowing. Wednesday will be 2 months since the injury. Now, walking w/ no assistance http://t.co/ZycbTynKBt
G. Hill being s good sport on media day. "I look like a fool holding this." http://t.co/fEgJysW7na
This is Paul George's first day without the boot, but it's just for media day
The rumors of Boomer being traded were not true. http://t.co/EezgXysq92
One's injured. Another can opt out in the summer. And another says he's always wanted to play just 10 years. http://t.co/1NvgbsCgdu
Paul George without crutches at media day. Not available to media though. http://t.co/Q5sylxLhRA
What could have been. http://t.co/xTaMd7kRXT
Group shots http://t.co/727bENmV6s
DWest: “More than anything, we just have to be in a reality of where we are. … Everybody’s got to adjust."
David West said his goal was to play 10 years in the league, and everything else is a bonus.
West: "I understand this is a key moment for me personally, I don't have a lot of time…" Said he always wanted to play 10 years.
David West, honest about thought creeping in his mind that he came here to win a title but now that window is all but gone.
