Now that we’ve had time to put the shock of Lebron not joining the Pacers behind us, let’s recap what has been happening in the world of the Indiana Pacers the last couple of days.
First of all, the Orlando Summer League. The Pacers went 3-2. 10th overall pick Paul George (who has the lamest photo on the Pacers’ NBA homepage right now) averaged 15.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.4 steals, but shot horribly.
Second round pick Lance Stephenson was the surprise hit, averaging 14.8 points and shooting 0.733 from the field in the first 3 games before injuring his thigh and sitting out the next 2. The other second round pick Magnum Rolle averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds.
Let me just remind everyone that the Summer League performances mean as much as me hitting a shot from my driveway.
Oh, and Roy Hibbert, one of the bright spots from last season, injured his knee when he slipped in an international game playing for Jamaica. Thank goodness it was believed to be minor.
