The Indiana Pacers will pay homage to Hickory High by wearing these throwback jerseys. Co-opting Hoosiers nostalgia for merchandising purposes is the smartest thing I’ve seen an NBA team do in a long time. Well, since the Clippers kidnapped DeAndre Jordan. That was quite savvy.
No word yet on if the Pacers will also be running the picket fence or letting a drunk coach the team.
