Hickory Pacers?


When you think of Indiana basketball you probably think of two things: “Hoosiers” and Larry Bird.

The Indiana Pacers have put these two ideas together in a marketing ploy sure to make every middle-aged white man in the state of Indiana cry tears of joy while simultaneously yelling “RUN THE PICKET FENCE!”.

To answer your pending questions, YES that’s the Hickory High School uniform from “Hoosiers”, and YES it appears that George Hill’s head-forest is doing it’s best Sisqo impression.


The Pacers will wear these special throwback uni’s this upcoming season on several, yet to be announced, “special occasions”.  A simple and effective marketing ploy to attract more white people to Pacer games I suppose.  Maybe they can get a guest appearance from Gene Hackman or the guy who played “Jimmy Chitwood” too, I’m sure they’re both available.
