07:13 AM ET 08.28 | Throughout this past season, fans were slow to come around on the Pacers, but, these days, they're enjoying some positive momentum. [Indiana's] long playoff run this spring is making it easier for the team's front office to sell tickets. Todd Taylor, the team's vice president of sales and marketing, said Tuesday that sales of season-ticket packages are up nearly 30 percent from this time last year. Packages are considered anything 11 games or more because they give the buyer a guarantee to purchase playoff tickets, he said. Per club policy, the Pacers do not reveal total number of season tickets. But Taylor said the 30 percent bump includes about 1,200 new ticket holders. "I still think we're in growth mode," Taylor said. Indianapolis Star

Players should stop complaining about fans not coming. Just do your job and win and the fans will come. Fans do get turned off from players stating that they're winning but fans are not coming.

Raymond is a Knick but I won't call him a winner. I feel bad for Felton. When the season starts he play really really well to deserve an all star nod but then just before the voting begins he gets hurt. I hope this is the one year Raymond Felton stays healthy long enough to make the A-team.

Let's go Knicks!
