The Indiana Pacers are the midst of a slump and one fan is intent on finding what’s wrong with the team.
He even went as far as creating an ad on Craiglist to help find Pacers forward Paul George’s “missing talent.”

The 23-year-old was a top MVP candidate for most of the season but he hasn’t performed up to his usual standards (he hasn’t shot above 40 percent in 11 of the last 13 games) during Indiana’s recent slide, which includes just three wins in its last 11 games.
Those struggles have allowed the Miami Heat to claim the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings with just a few weeks left in the regular season. Getting the top seed and the prize of home court advantage in the postseason is important for the Pacers after they lost Game 7 of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals in Miami.
If this fan really wants to find where George’s talent went, he should check with the Monstars. They have some experience in stealing the skills of NBA stars.
