Jon Filet and Flava Dave are here to walk you through the big news regarding the Indiana Pacers — Monta Ellis’ weed problem. But the majority of the show is spent discussing Paul George’s message to the team: I’m Leaving. The guys break down possible trade scenarios (the Cavs are a real option) and reveal why the Lakers have less leverage than you might think. The boys also ponder the direction and look of the Pacers rebuild. Two things are certain — the tank-mobile is back and Lance should play be let off the leash.

Jon Filet and Flava Dave return for their first podcast of the offseason. They give their respective takes on the Kevin Pritchard’s promotion to team president and ponder several options regarding the Paul George situation. Do the Lakers have the necessary goods for a proper Pacers rebuild, or do the Boston Celtics? One thing is clear, PG ain’t going to be around much longer.
Jon Filet and Flava Dave conclude a turbulent season by contemplating the future, specifically team president Larry Bird. They discuss the pros and cons of Bird’s tenure with the team, and detail how the Pacers got to this precarious moment. They also ponder possible moves Indiana could make to appease Paul George — and whether or not they’re feasible. All that plus a cap breakdown for the summer, and predictions regarding PG’s future.
Jon Filet and Flava Dave breakdown Game 1 of the Pacers’ first round series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, including C.J. Miles’ last-second shot, the phony controversy surrounding Paul George’s confidence and the team’s addiction to switching on pick and rolls. Also, Monta’s not good enough, Glenn Robinson III returns and the guys make predictions for Games 2 and 3. Plus, dad bods, and why TV news sports reporters are terrible people.
Jon Filet and Flava Dave invite Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star onto the show to preview the Pacers’ upcoming series with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nate spills the beans regarding the possible return of GR3, whether Monta remains the starter and how he his All-NBA vote could impact the Pacers. All three make their series predictions and present their best case scenario for Indiana to make it a competitive series. Hint: HIDE THE MONTA!
Jon Filet and Flava Dave are counting down number of wins left before the Pacers secure a playoff spot (it ain’t that many). Never ones to settle for just good enough, they also discuss the various ways Indiana can creep up the Eastern Conference Standings. Also, the boys ponder the eventual return of Glenn Robinson and where he fits with the Born Ready era. And by the way, Paul George is still a bad ass. All that, plus terrible NBA shoes, trusting the process and measuring the merits of this year’s MVP.
Jon Filet and Flava Dave are as excited about the Pacers as you are. Thanks, Lance! The guys discuss Born Ready’s return to the Fielhouse and everything that implies — the energy, enthusiasm, defense, expert trolling, etc. They also talk about Lance’s short-term and long-term role with the team. Also, the bench is better, Paul George still enjoys being amazing and Lance still loves him some Hooters.
