Hard Screens Podcast: The Demise of the Indiana Pacers


Falling in a 3-1 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Indiana Pacers are on the verge of elimination.  It’s due to the Miami Heat, and one player Frank Vogel has realized you don’t want to mess with.

Maybe Lance Stephenson needs to sit down with Larry Bird himself, and receive a lesson on trash talk 101.  In order to “get into someone’s head,” you have to be capable of outplaying them.  Nobody in the Eastern Conference — let alone in this series — will ever outplay LeBron James in a seven game series.  All the competition is out West, and it’s allowing Miami to cruise to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year (in all likelihood).

Today on the Hard Screens Podcast, host Shane Young is joined by Jay Graves, Editor-in-Chief of TheJayGravesReport.com.  Topics are narrowed to this surprising Eastern Conference Finals, as we go back and forth explaining why the Pacers fell flat on their face …. on LeBron’s doorstep.  Enjoy!
