Monday January 31 2011 – 12:48pm Eastern – Indianapolis, IN

We took the day off yesterday — no blog … no VLOG … no nothin’.

In fact, I spent almost 3 hours of my day yesterday teaching Jack Armstrong how to work his new BlackBerry (getting his email set up and showing him how to search the browser, used BlackBerry Messenger, etc).  Fun times.

But we’re back at it today … getting set for the Pacers and Raptors.

It’s a new ‘era’ for Indy tonight … under interim head coach Frank Vogel (a former video coordinator for the Pacers (see, ‘dreams’ do come true)).

Paul Jones and I break it all down in the latest edition of the world-famous Sportsnet Radio, The Fan 590 VLOG:

The 7pm tip tonight means … no pre game.  So you’ll hear from us right before the action starts.

All bodies are expected to be on-deck tonight; Jerryd Bayless may be a game-time decision … Barbosa, Kleiza, and Evans are still back in T.O.

Have a good one folks

    To further along the point of a lack of leadership on this team, correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think there is an NBA Championship amongst anyone on the roster.

    I think BC should find anyone who has had a title in the last few years and either sign or trade for that person. I true experienced veteran would go long way in helping this team.

    I know there is already plenty of depth at the 2-3 spots, but maybe try and go after Richard Hamilton. I know his contract is huge, but the Raps should be able to absorb most of it while not giving much up. Someone like that would be great addition to this young team and provide some much needed leadership both on and off the court.

    One positive of the 11 game losing streak; just think how happy our little heroes will be when they shake that giant monkey off their back.

    And think of the pressure on the Pacers to not drop one to our loveable losers lol

    -Looking for any bright sport here!

    It occurs to me that with all the (justified) hating on Bargnani during this streak, that he really doesn’t have a elder statesman on this team to hold him accountable. Bosh clearly couldn’t do it.

    After 5 years in the league, he shouldn’t need that and should really be the example for others instead.

    Could Reggie Evans light a fire under him (if he’s not on the trading block)?

    OT, funny to see Bosh called out last night for being one of the leaugue’s trash talker tough guys; as opposed to really being tough.

    Not exactly a “Ru Paul” type of comment but funny nonetheless.

    What’s amazing, Gary, is that the red carpet has been rolled out for Bargnani, and he still refuses to play like a starter.

    Having guys like Bosh and Evans around will only diminish Bargnani’s rebounding, not augment it. No one on this roster rebounds, and yet Bargnani still can’t do it.

    It’s astounding. Had any GM taken over BC’s job by now, Bargnani would be long, long gone from TO. Only because of BC’s complete refusal to trade him — or, perhaps the league’s refusal to trade FOR Bargnani — is the guy still in town.
