The Pacers and their fans have been begrudging the national media for a lack of coverage and respect against LeBron James and what's left of the Big 3 in Miami.  Another round of ammo was given to that argument by ESPN, who declared on the eve of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals that Indiana was playing for their first trip to the NBA Finals.  This of course is not correct.  The Indiana Pacers were definitely in the 2000 NBA Finals.  I remember.  I watched it.  There's even a Wikipedia article dedicated to it.

You'd think ESPN would remember the 2000 NBA Finals, after all, the Lakers were playing in them too.
