We all know what happens when you take money from the rich to make a game.
But what about when the game is made for the poor?
That’s what the Indiana Pacers are going to do when they bring the NBA to the streets this year, and they’re going to use a few of the most expensive hoops in the world to do it.
We already know the story of Indiana basketball’s first NBA game.
In 1872, Indiana became the first state to get a team to play in a regular season NBA game, when they defeated the Boston Celtics in a game that lasted three hours and 20 minutes.
After that game, the state legislature passed the first of the state’s $40 million bonds to build a basketball court in Indianapolis, but the cost of building a new one in the state surpassed the original investment.
In the end, Indiana lost the basketball game in 1873, but when the state had a chance to do something about it in the early 1900s, the legislature passed a $2 million bond to build the Indiana Pavilion, a 19,000-seat arena that opened in 1910.
The first game ever played at the arena, though, took place in 1910, and the state invested $1 million into the construction of the arena.
That money would be enough to finance the construction, which took two years and cost $10 million.
That was enough to build two of the original three Indiana High School Basketball Teams, the first in 1913 and the second in 1921.
The new arena opened in 1920 and, along with the state of Indiana, raised nearly $30 million for the construction.
That’s when the Indiana High Basketball Association (IHA) began playing in the national league.
The IHA has since grown into a huge franchise, with a capacity of almost 14,000 fans per game and a payroll of $1.2 million.
With a total of over 1,600 players, the IHA is one of the best in the country.
But what if the game doesn’t always work out the way the players expect?
If the players have to pay to play, is it worth the money?
That question was asked in the 2016 documentary “Cities, Neighborhoods, and Hoosiers,” which explored the history and the future of the Indiana Hoosier Basketball Association, or IHA.
In the film, one of its main characters, Larry Krieger, played for the IHAs first team and, as he tells his story, the process of building the new arena took some serious money.
“We were going to spend a lot of money to get that thing up and running,” Krieer told the film’s cinematographer, David DeGange.
“I’m not sure we could do it on our own.
The whole thing was a big gamble for us.”
The film also revealed that the IHEA’s first game in 1921 was not the first one they would ever play in Indianapolis.
In 1923, the Indiana Football League folded.
That left the IHOAs team to fend for itself.
As Krieg said, “It was hard.
We were young.
It was rough.”
But the IHSAA eventually found a new home in the University of Michigan, and as Kriegs story shows, the team was very good.
The film also shows that the Indiana Hauling Association was a success, and that the new basketball team was the inspiration for an NBA team that would become the Detroit Pistons.
The documentary is worth watching to see how this story came to be.
The story of the Hoosers and the new Indiana High basketball team will be told in a movie called “The Hoosest, the Most Lovable,” which will be released on April 1.
