Jon Filet and Flava Dave invite former Indiana Pacers guard C.J. Miles on to the show to discuss his three-year stint with the Blue and Gold. Topics include his new duties with the Toronto Raptors, his thoughts on Indy’s lackluster chemistry, and the league’s stance on high school eligibility. C.J. also discusses his relationship with Myles Turner, the realness of Larry Bird and what he’ll miss most about his time in the Circle City.
Jon Filet and Flava Dave begin the post-Paul George era by breaking down the Pacers’ trade for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Did Indiana make a good trade or were they victims of a bad situation? Was Kevin Pritchard ever going to trade George to a contender, or was he simply being petty? What do Oladipo and Sabonis bring to the team, and where does this leave Lance Stephenson, Glenn Robinson III and Thad Young? Also, former Pacer Jonathan Bender stops by the show to discuss his post-basketball career and gives his thoughts on the NCAA and the prospects of current young players in the league.
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.
