For what it's worth, Bruno apparently said in a game chat he doesn't think there's any chance they leave. Pacers want a deal, Ballard wants one, the state wants one, thinks it'll happen. I think if they can make it through this year and the lockout, which is a lot easier said than done, financial problems will be a thing of the past with the new CBA.

do you know who the ice is owned by?
