In Indiana, basketball is more than a pastime. It's part of everything we do. We don't just "play" basketball. We live it. And that love of the game starts from the moment we're born and it lasts our entire lives. You can see it on the concrete of our driveways, on the blacktop of our parks, and on the hardwood of our gymnasiums. You can hear it in our conversations. And you can feel it everywhere you go, from Evansville to Elkhart and every town in between.
It's that love and respect of the game that spreads throughout our team. It pushes us to get stronger when we're lifting weights and go faster when we're running sprints. It motivates us to watch that extra game film and put up those extra jump shots. And it sets the bar for each and every one of us every time we step on the court.
It's why we are proud to represent the state of Indiana, the city of Indianapolis, and everyone who loves our game.
It's why we are proud to call ourselves the Indiana Pacers.
We Grow Basketball Here.
