    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was no fan of LeBron James’ flamboyant celebration last week when the NBA superstar helped the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Indiana Pacers. It was one of James’ last games before he was put into the NBA’s health and safety protocols because of a positive coronavirus test. James would later have subsequent negative tests that allowed him to return to the team.

(Andy Lyons/Getty Images) When James hit the shot against the Pacers, he imitated Sam Cassell’s "big balls" dance. Abdul-Jabbar said someone like James shouldn’t be doing those kinds of celebrations. "For me, winning is enough. Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance," the Basketball Hall of Famer said in a SubStack commentary video on Wednesday. ...

    Getty Fred VanVleet #23 of the Toronto Raptors drives the ball against ex-Boston Celtics guard Brad Wanamaker #9. The Boston Celtics may have some point guard question marks of their own. However, with Marcus Smart under contract through 2026 and Dennis Schroder doing his best to play himself into the C’s future, the chance Brad Stevens swings a notable deal at the position ahead of this year’s trade deadline seems rather slim. Yet, while Boston works to get the most out of their current backcourt assortment, a former Celtics guard could be in play as a deadline candidate for one of Boston’s more vaunted rivals.

    Getty Indiana Pacers guard Brad Wanamaker drives with the ball during a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. ‘Tis the season for fans and hoop pundits alike to put their GM caps on. Their mission: to identify the NBA‘s next blockbuster trade and/or make their own teams better. And while the 12-7 Miami Heat need less help than some, there are definitely spots on the roster where the club could benefit from a move. As it stands, there’s no blockbuster deal to be made for Heat president Pat Riley. He has seemingly made his bed with the core of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Kyle Lowry, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson. However, a quality depth piece or two could bolster Miami as a legitimate title contender. Earlier this week, Bleacher Report cited an offensive-minded backup point-man, support scoring/shooting and more muscle down low as potential needs. For the most part, that rings true for the Heat as currently constituted. More recently, though, B/R’s Greg Swartz did a write-up on specific hypothetical trades that each contending club could make to help...

    Getty The New York Knicks have gotten off to a nice start this season, and there’s a lot of excitement from the fanbase through these eight games. Notoriously, fans were in the streets after the double overtime win over the Boston Celtics saying the team was going to take it all the way. Obviously, there’s a long way for the team to go if they want that to happen, but the early returns have been nice. While the rest of the video is filled with a lot of obscenities, one fan came up to the mic and said “bing bong” into it, and the rest is history. Since then, the Knicks have incorporated the phrase into their home games, the players have been saying it and the NBA has been tweeting it. Unfortunately, other teams see that low hanging fruit as bit of a target early into the season and you can now count the Indiana Pacers as the latest to troll the Knicks after a victory.Bing Bong bing bong.#PacersWin pic.twitter.com/OJdz8kYGK7 — Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) November 4, 2021...

    The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers try to start out the season with a win against a contender on Saturday night. The Heat blew out the defending NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks by the final score of 137-95 on their opening night, so it’s safe to say expectations are high for them heading into Saturday’s matchup against the Indiana Pacers. Miami returns Jimmy Butler as their centerpiece, who now stars in a backcourt along with Kyle Lowry. Add in Duncan Robinson, P.J. Tucker and Bam Adebayo, and you can see why the Heat are favored to make another deep playoff run in the East. The Pacers, meanwhile, haven’t gotten as lucky.

    Bradley Beal's absence put Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyle Kuzma on the spot — and those two made quite a first impression on their new fans in Washington. Dinwiddie scored 34 points — including a tying 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter — and Kuzma added 26 to lift the Wizards to a 135-134 overtime win over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Beal missed the game for Washington because of hip problems. "Obviously, Brad being out, I can still be aggressive, and my volume's going to be higher," Kuzma said. "If he's in playing, I might be lower. But I'm going to play the same every game."

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kevin Pritchard made his offseason desire clear: The Indiana Pacers president of basketball operations wanted someone to emerge as a locker room leader and he wasn’t sure whether that player was on the roster at the end of last season. By the time training camp opened, Pritchard thought he had found an answer in Malcolm Brogdon. “Over the summer, I think one started to emerge,” he said. “We had a few players get together a couple of times this summer and one player kind of organized that. That was Malcolm. We don’t have that, we call it an alpha guy, out there, whose pounding the table on anything but I think we’ll have a bunch of guys step up and it will be more team leadership, community leadership.” New coach Rick Carlisle believes Brogdon is a natural in the leading role. Brogdon’s great grandfather was a pastor and civil rights advocate. His grandfather marched with Martin Luther King Jr.. His father, Mitchell, is a lawyer and mediator, and his mother, Jann Adams, is an associate vice president...

A ‘C’ means a team is in similar standing, with notches up or down from there. © Provided by NBC Sports The Pacers – the NBA’s play-it-safe franchise – just missed the playoffs for the first time in six years and only the second time in 11 years. Indiana’s season was defined by coaching turbulence. A lack of wing depth stung. So, the Pacers ran toward comfort. Indiana re-hired Rick Carlisle (who coached the team from 2003-07) and used the No. 13 pick on Oregon wing Chris Duarte (one of the most polished players in the draft). But if the Pacers feel a sense of security, it’s a false one. This is the 19th time an NBA team re-hired a former head coach with the franchise. Of the prior 18, 15 had a worse record than...
    The Indiana Pacers reportedly are still in the hunt to acquire Ben Simmons from the 76ers, this time they’ve offered Caris LeVert for the disgruntled 76ers star.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers signed first-round draft pick Chris Duarte on Monday, as they fine-tune their summer league roster. Terms of the deal were not immediately availabe.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers selected Oregon guard Chris Duarte with the 13th pick in Thursday’s NBA draft, adding scoring punch off the bench. At age 24, he was the oldest player in the draft. But he averaged 17.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 steals in his second and final season with the Ducks and at 6-foot-6, 190 pounds possesses the kind of size, general manager Kevin Pritchard was looking to add to his backcourt. The Pacers believe Duarte, who shot 53.2% from the field and 42.4% on 3-pointers, can help them return to the playoffs after being eliminated in the play-in round last season. Indiana has struggled with injuries each of the past three seasons. A repeat of that would mean Duarte likely would see even more action than initially anticipated. The Pacers find themselves in an odd situation with all five projected starters already under contract for next season, giving them stability on the floor. But they’re also working with their third coach in three seasons. Indiana fired Nate McMillan in August 2020 after the...
    Getty Malcolm Brogdon #7 of the Indiana Pacers warms up prior to their game against the Charlotte Hornets. In a “perfect world,” Kendrick Perkins would like to see his former team make a run at prized free-agent Kyle Lowry this offseason. However, as he noted on ESPN’s The Jump, the current financial state of the Boston Celtics makes such a move fairly unrealistic. In which case, a consolation prize of Malcolm Brogdon would seemingly suffice as an ideal replacement for Kemba Walker in the C’s backcourt. When asked by host Rachel Nichols what it will take for Boston to re-establish themselves as legitimate title contenders, Perkins responded by making a case for the Celtics to swing a deal to acquire the former Rookie of the Year from Indiana. “I would actually consider trading Marcus Smart for Malcolm Brogdon. I would bring him in,” Perkins proclaimed. “I think he’s a guy that fits in well around the two guys that matter the most and that’s Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. He’s a 50/40/90 guy. He knows how to play...
