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?

Then again, G. Hill also said he thinks these #Pacers "are going to be a special team." He just won't hype up goals. In fact, no one will

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

I've got mixed feelings about floor, but should get people talking about #IUPUI a little bit.

Michael Pointer

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

Candace Buckner

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

Candace Buckner

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 said his goal was to play 10 years in the league, and everything else is a bonus.

Candace Buckner

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.

Candace Buckner

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.

Candace Buckner

West: "It was like a punch to the gut."

Candace Buckner

David West revealed that he was watching the game when Paul George broke his leg. Initially didn't know what happened but realized impact

David West was watching USA Basketball scrimmage by himself when PG went down. “It was like a punch to the gut."

When asked if he's aligned with other guys' mentality not to talk so much abt goals, and just play, David West responds: "Sure."

David West: "We've got a challenge in front of us. We've got to figure it out."

While I'm at #Pacers Media Day, I'm seeing tweets of co-workers boasting of their free Chik-fil-A lunches. @NatJNewell, wanna save me one?

Dar! That last tweet would've been way funnier if I had my numbers accurate: "2014-15" season of course

Candace Buckner

#Pacers 2014-14 iTunes playlist: "Don't Speak" … "Shut Up and Drive" … "Careless Whisper."

Candace Buckner

G. Hill said won't talk about goals: "This year we just need to shut up a little bit and do our job."

Candace Buckner

You can tell Vogel's message has resonated with team already. In their own way, each person whose stepped to the mic has muted expectations

Scott Agness

Pacers all on the same page about goals. GHill: I think it’s better if we don’t make expectations, because then you guys judge us for that

Candace Buckner

G. Hill said guys have been on the court together: "From what I see, it's going to be a special team."

Candace Buckner

G. Hill: "... if that's what coach allows me to do that's what I'm going to do to best of my ability."

Candace Buckner

G. Hill "It will be nice to get to run the wing sometimes…"

Scott Agness

GHill felt like success hurt them last year, as we all said, and they lost the sense of urgency. Likes having the chip back on the shoulder.

Candace Buckner

G. Hill: "I think success actually killed us last year." Believes #Pacers can sneak up on ppl as underdog this yr http://t.co/6Hxak4veWD

G. Hill on his aggressive offseason workouts: "I didn't do anything differently when (Paul) went down or when (Lance) left."

George Hill thinks his biggest improvement this season was with his mental game. Wants to be a bigger leader, make an impact.

George Hill, with a fresh lining and all, comes in complimenting the gathered press: "You guys look pretty today."

I miss rookie Roy, where he was hilarious and always had a joke. First day of the season and he looked like he was having a cavity filled.

Hibbert: "Our whole mindset is everybody is going to eat.” instagram.com/p/tiMtGNl5cw/

Candace Buckner

Hibbert - focusing really, really hard on his vow of silence this season - repeated that he'll let coach do the talking this season.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert, speaking softly, has vowed to basically shut up when it comes to releasing whatever's on his mind to the media.

Scott Agness

Roy: This season I’m going to do a better job of not talking, saying stuff on my mind to the media as much … & just going out there playing.

Scott Agness

Hibbert said Kareem Abdul-Jabbar also helped him mentally. Kareem joined Roy at his home for ninja movies. Seriously.

Scott Agness

Hibbert says he’s got to establish himself early in games; wants the team to play like San Antonio, where it’s not about one man.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert now at the podium. Said it was good working with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who came over to his house as well
