    A little surprised to see Larry Bird in the background. I didn't realize he still had a role with the Pacers.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Smits play for Butler.

    He's been a sort of advisor ever since stepping down as president of basketball operations, though his role has never been clearly defined. I think he's still around to ensure the Pacers continue to burn draft picks on slow, white power forwards. So it's really no surprise he's hovering around Smits.

    I imagine he can jump more than 3 inches off the ground, so he should be an improvement playing center over the 2 giant sloths we had last year.

    Good to hear the positive statements from Smits.
