Reggie Miller: Pacers Still Suffering from Brawl
TNT held its All-Star Game conference call Monday. Former Pacer great Reggie Miller was asked to compare the impact of the Gilbert Arenas incident to when Ron Artest went into the stands at the Palace of Auburn Hills in November 2004.
"(The Pacers) still haven’t recovered. Other than Danny Granger, who was an All-Star last year and (Roy) Hibbert’s playing well this year. They play hard, but the Pacers have never, ever recovered from that night. Things will never be the same until they get lucky in the draft. They are able to overpay a free agent and things get turned around, but things will never be the same. Let’s hope that’s not the case in the nation’s capital with the Wizards, but it’s just not the same."
