I havent seen this posted anywhere, thought it was interesting that the Pacers will be the first team to wear a jersey based on a fictional team.

Pacers to celebrate Hoosiers anniversary with 'Hickory' uniforms

They may not run the famed "picket fence," but the Indiana Pacers will celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Hoosiers" by wearing the film's "Hickory" uniforms during select games next season.

The Pacers and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios announced the deal on Tuesday morning.

"Our team will be honored to wear the Hickory uniforms because of the attention it will bring to the storied history of Indiana basketball and the success of that movie," Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said in a statement. "'Hoosiers' takes us all back to a special place and time."

The Pacers simply need to unretire the Flo-Jo uniforms and wear them again full-time, it was their best set ever. I don't know what the issue is with the Hardwood Classics barring any team from simply wearing former uniforms again, but for this team, the Pacers, it needs to happen.

oh sure, they are "honoring" a movie.......

They want to sell a ton of jerseys, and will accomplish it.
