"IT'S RIGGED! THE COMMISSIONER HAS ALREADY PICKED WHO HE WANTS TO WIN FOR RATINGS!"

That's a common phrase you've probably heard shouted at a game, a pub, or even your basement watching a Pacers game with your buddies at some point over the last 25 years. 

Whether it was the 90's against Patrick Ewing and the Knicks, MJ and the Bulls, the early 2000's Lakers, or through the latest era of LeBron James teams, the commissioner has never been on the side of the Pacers. 

Until now?

David Stern was the commissioner through 75% of those eras listed above, and in a recent interview he said his favorite place to watch a basketball game is Bankers Life Fieldhouse. 

Sure, he didn't remember the name of it, but still! The commissioner who turned the NBA around, made it global, grew the brand to it's popularity today's favorite arena is right here in downtown Indianapolis. 

Take that NYC, and The Garden.
