Pacers Lose a Most Valuable Player

A basketball team consists of more than men in uniform. All of the people in the locker room before, during and immediately after the games contribute to the final score, whether they're dropping game-winning threes or treating knees. That's why the passing of Dr. F. Robert Brueckmann on Aug. 20 had special meaning to the veterans within the Pacers organization. He was the team physician from the franchise' ...

Ex-Pacers Player Soared in Retirement

Filtered through the numbers on the back page of a media guide, Warren Jabali's lone season with the Indiana Pacers was forgettable. Plagued by physical ailments, he averaged 11 points and 4.8 rebounds over 62 games in 1970-71, and was released at the start of training camp the following season. That's an out-of-context view, however. Jabali was one of the most unique talents in the American Basketball Asso ...

Green, 26, has bounced around the league since drafted 18th by the Boston Celtics in the 2005 NBA Draft. The McDonald’s All-American was part of the last class allowed under the old collective bargaining agreement to enter the NBA straight out of high school. A decision Green d ...

Roundfield had indelible impact on the Pacers

Dan Roundfield, who passed away last week from a heroic drowning accident, played just three seasons for the Pacers in the 1970s, but he made an indelible impact on the franchise – both by arriving and by leaving. The greatest impact came when he became a free agent and signed a contract with the Atlanta Hawks in 1978, flexing his hard-earned free agency muscle with a decision nobody could dispute. The Pace ...

Thrilled for the Opportunity

It’s not very often that someone gets to work professionally for their hometown team. I, fortunately, get that opportunity. Born-and raised a Hoosier, I graduated from North Central High School and Indiana University. About two and a half years ago I started my own site, VigilantSports.com, and covered teams across Indiana. I’ve covered many spectacular events including multiple Indianapolis 500s and Big Te ...

Ready to Begin a New Experience

I'd like to say I've aspired to work for the Indiana Pacers' website since I was a young boy back in the 1960s, but that would be a lie for obvious reasons. Like most kids then, I really was hoping to sell iPads. You just never know how things are going to turn out in life, though, so here I am, ready to begin a new experience: writing for Pacers.com. It's an endeavor that will allow me to draw from my vast ...
