Indianapolis Indians play-by-play voice Howard Kellman is back less than two weeks after suffering a heart attack in the booth in June.
A man who has lived at the ballpark now could die there. He’s on a gurney at Victory Field but the game goes on, medics shoving pills into his mouth – first aspirin, then nitroglycerin – as the play-by-play man continues not 5 feet away.

Larry Bird's remake of Indiana Pacers continues with acquisition of Thaddeus Young from Brooklyn Nets for No. 20 pick in 2016 NBA Draft, one day after trading George Hill to Utah Jazz, who sent No. 12 pick to Atlanta Hawks - who sent hometown point guard Jeff Teague to Pacers.
One magic trick after another, Larry Bird is remaking the Indiana Pacers. His first trick came Wednesday when he threw a cloak over George Hill, removed it with a flourish, and poof: It’s Jeff Teague!

Pacers blew it in 2012 when they didn't draft Draymond Green. They're not going to do it again in the 2016 NBA Draft, with fellow Michigan State star Denzel Valentine. Are they? Larry Bird, you're off the mock and on the clock. Get Paul George the PG he needs: Denzel.

Crispus Attucks basketball star Willie Gardner was a bigger, possibly better Oscar Robertson. But after starring with the Harlem Globetrotters, his heart failed a New York Knicks' physical and he was finished in NBA. He died of diabetes at age 66, a tragic story of a supreme talent.
He was given so much, and so much was taken away. Piece by piece the doctors came for him until the day comes where he has had enough.

Vanderbilt hired Stephanie White, who will remain the WNBA's Indiana Fever coach until the fall. Not many people could pull of the double duty, but White -- former Indiana Miss Basketball, Purdue All-American and national champion -- isn't most people.
Juggling two head coaching jobs at the same time is now the norm for Stephanie White.

New Colts defensive coordinator Ted Monachino has a take-charge philosophy that could distinguish him from the cast of vanilla DC's around the league, including the one he replaced on Chuck Pagano's staff.
He better be different. He better be good. That’s what I was thinking when the Colts announced in January they had hired a new defensive coordinator. Don’t be like the last guy.

Two-star Indiana recruit Grant Gelon of Crown Point is unheralded and struggled in all-star games, but IU coach Tom Crean and Gelon's high school coach Clint Swan are convinced the sweet-shooting Gelon can play at IU. Gelon believes he will be fine, too.
Tom Crean doesn’t know the numbers. He doesn’t want to know the numbers, either. I tell him I have those numbers, but Crean isn’t interested.

The Indiana Pacers won Wednesday's three-team trade with the Hawks and Jazz, acquiring Jeff Teague for the meager price of George Hill (to Utah). Utah sent the No. 12 pick in the 2016 NBA draft to Atlanta. Teague gives Larry Bird, and Paul George, a pure point guard.
Jeff Teague for George Hill? That’s a trade you make every day of the week and twice on Sunday, because at some point Indiana Pacers President Larry Bird ought to walk into church and offer a prayer of forgiveness.

Is LeBron James the greatest of all time? Or Michael Jordan or Wilt Chamberlain? After his triple-double dominance of Golden State in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, let's just say the Cleveland Cavaliers star is true greatness. Period. No matter what Draymond Green says.
LeBron James isn’t reinventing greatness, but he is refining it. On the court, off the court. He’s as good as we’ve got in the NBA, whether we know it or not.

Butler signee Joey Brunk of Southport is a growing center with huge upside. Expect Bulldogs coach Chris Holtmann to get the most out of him. Meantime, Brunk's best basketball is ahead of him in Big East. 
Like so many science projects, this one started in seventh grade. Joey Brunk was the student. Joey Brunk also was the project.

Colts QB Andrew Luck soon will become the highest paid player in NFL history, yet his million (billion?) dollar contract negotiation puts him in a bind between the NFLPA union and Indianapolis' Super Bowl hopes.And Jim Irsay, Ryan Grigson know it.
Andrew Luck is about to get paid, negotiating with the Indianapolis Colts a contract extension that will give him the top salary in NFL history. And that puts him in a no-win situation.

Backyward brawler and YouTube sensation Kimbo Slice's death from a heart ailment had Indianapolis MMA vet Matt Mitrione remembering their time on Dana White's Ultimate Fighter reality show, his knockout win, and the man formerly known as Kevin Ferguson's true nature.
Indianapolis fighter Matt Mitrione knew Kimbo Slice. He spent six weeks living with him. Spent nearly 10 minutes beating on him.
