Great article to kick the preseason off.

I love the "no bullshit" part of Carlisle's team goals. Pacers have always felt like a no bullshit franchise - no silly player-related stories, no gossip, no public conflicts, no suspensions for "funny stuff". I hope that carries on.

Will the Denari - Buckner duo return for another season on Bally Sports? I love their commentary.

This is a bit of a random question, but is the organ still in the Fieldhouse? I know the organist passed away some years back and if I remember correctly, the Pacers said (at some point) they were open to finding a new organist to play at games. It's not a huge deal, but I thought it was one of the best parts of the gameday atmosphere. It's just not the same hearing an obviously recorded soundtrack that can't change to fit the flow of the game.
