Kevin Durant – Indiana Pacers Rumors

Hello everyone, It’s been awhile since my last blog, but it has been crazy busy at work and a low sports period besides the NBA snoozefest Finals.

I came across a article today that there was a rumor that Paul George and Kevin Durant were talking on the phone for hours today and was trying to persuade Kevin Durant to join PG, Ellis and Turner.   Apparently, Paul told reporters recently “Why wouldn’t I try to get him to Indiana ?”.  
As much as I would love this idea and welcome KD to the Pacers,  I don’t really see a feasible way for the Pacers to contractully take in KD.  There would have to be a significant pay cut made by Durant to make this happen.   Yes, the  Pacers have the possible pieces to lure a star player here, BUT I honestly don’t see it happening.  Sorry Folks !   It’s fun to look into the scenarios and to be wishful but smart thinking is that the dream will go up in smoke.  Several Indianapolis people have actively recruited Kevin Durant on Twitter with #KevINDYrant hashtag.  Pat McAfee recently as well did his share of recruiting Durant.  He tweeted to Durant how it was to live as a professional athlete in Indianapolis.  
Let’s all wish and also jump aboard the Kevin Durant recruiting trail !     Can’t hurt ! 

Paul George and Company

Paul George scored 39 points 2 nights ago and it wasn’t enough as the Raptors beat the Pacers. The question is, where is Paul George’s help? PG carried the load and while resting on the bench, the subs gave up a 17 point lead. Here’s a thought that started lingering in my mind. What if, after a performance like he had and the performance the team had, what if Paul thinks he doesn’t have the correct pieces to get a championship. I’m not saying the Pacers are ready now, but what if doubt settles in George’s head. PG can opt out of his contract in 2 yrs. what if PG decides that what’s around him is not enough and Bird and Walsh don’t want to spend the money………..could we be seeing the last couple years of Paul George in Indiana before he bolts for a ring ? Food for thought. Leave your thoughts here.
