Pacers home arena issues continue

The Pacers still have their home arena issues to deal with.

Sounds like a really tough situation, arena contract issues combined with lack of home fan support.

No. You've gotta remember after Wednesday is July 1st, meaning the new NBA season begins. They put out that "deadline" around 6 weeks ago because they'd obviously like to start a new season knowing what their financial situation will be like.

I saw a report a few weeks ago that said the CIB offered a 3 year lease plan, CIB picks up the $15mm, gets half of all non-NBA revenue, then after 3 years a new CBA's in place between the league and union and everything's much more clear about what needs to be done with the Fieldhouse. The Pacers walked away from the table. I'm all for playing hardball, but walking away from that is just stupid. I love this franchise, but I'm not about to let them try and hold the city hostage.

I don't care what Bird says, find me a buyer that'll pay $150mm for breaking the lease on top of the cost of the franchise and all the moving costs. It doesn't exist. The team's not moving, not unless they go to court and somehow overturn the lease. If they do that I'll pack their bags.

That's crazy. Can't see him taking it, his back's awful and that's a helluva grind. Plus he'd only do it three years.

ya i cant see him taking it either, he's a pretty reserved guy and going to cleveland would put him in a huge spotlight, if i'm him i'd be content staying in indiana pretty much having free reign over anything i wanted to do

my wife's cousin is married to the daughter he had in college. he has absolutely nothing to do w/ her.

so the "deadline" isn't really a deadline?

I think me being friends with his daughter and her saying he got offered the job is pretty credible.

:confusedshrug: i didn't say that it wasn't. i'm being serious about my wife's cousin being his 1st daughter's husband. it's the kid he had while being here in my hometown during his college days.
