Stephen Jackson told the Indianapolis Star: "Everybody is entitled to their opinion. I respect Reggie too much to degrade his statement, but I don't agree with it. We're the best team in the league. We know it." Former Pacer Reggie Miller, who retired after last season, has angered some of his old teammates with some of his commentary on TNT. He picked the Pistons to win the East, saying, "Until Indiana shows me they've solved their chemistry problems, you have to go with a team that doesn't argue, that gets the job done at the end of the day. Any little thing can set Indiana off." Naturally, that got the blood flowing in Indiana.
