Everything isn't so serious around BLF, @MillerTimePod. David West did laugh when I told him he's getting "really, really, really old."

Candace Buckner

David West: "Coach is going to define some roles and try to get everybody in the most comfortable position to maximize their ability…"

Candace Buckner

David West: "We’ve got to figure out a way to get a competitive group on the floor and try to compete."

Candace Buckner

It's only 1st day of weeklong 2-a-days so of course, composition will change. As David West says, #Pacers will be searching for good combos

Candace Buckner

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

Candace Buckner

#Pacers PG George Hill said first day of training camp was atypical of past openers. Not much "pounding on each other" but more teaching

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.

Rodney Stuckey and Solomon Hill rounded out the first unit with GHill, West, and Hibbert during the time media watched.

Roy Hibbert said he texted #Spurs' Tim Duncan for advice on how "they go about their business" #Pacers would like to imitate their ball mvmt

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

"There's no decision made yet," Hazell said on QBs. "We'll watch and see how practice unfolds." #Purdue

Michael Pointer

"That is correct," Hazell said when asked if he doesn't want to reveal his plans for the quarterbacks against Illinois just yet. #purdue

Michael Pointer

Hazell said #Purdue will be in more nickel back packages this week because of Illinois offense.

Candace Buckner

Just realized 2day is my 1-yr work anniversary at The Star...& the #Pacers are commemorating this by starting training camp. How thoughtful

Michael Pointer

Hazell has yet to commit to starting QB this week, but said, "You don't want to keep re-visiting that situation." #purdue

Michael Pointer

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.

Michael Pointer

I don't think it applies, but it would nice if the #FCC's ruling forced Indianapolis Motor Speedway to televise 500 live in Indy.

Michael Pointer

I will, add, however that is neat to see @Harryandizzys across the street. I will celebrate there when I get a big raise. #starevolving

Michael Pointer

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.

Michael Pointer

It was a bit disconcerting to walk to the office though the mall, but our new digs here @indystar are nice. Do you care much beyond that?

Michael Pointer

The #FCC ruling has little impact on us here in Indy. Now, if the Colts were to go 2-14 again. . .It just might.

Michael Pointer

#FCC has just voted to eliminate sports blackout rules, a move long opposed by NFL. Another sign that all-powerful league losing influence?

Interesting look from @IUPUIJaguars with the new basketball floor. Features Indy city skyline. Forwarded in previous Tweet. Thoughts??

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

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.
