Are the Pacers "America's team"?

Interesting take in this article. Fun read-

Are the Indiana Pacers the NBA’s version of America’s Team?

Sometimes you just have to credit people for staying with it. Your dad may not have ever been a rich man or had the plushest job in the world, but regardless he kept at it. Day in and day out, he went into work and took care of the necessities to provide for you and the family. That man reminds me a lot of the Indiana Pacers over the years.

Though they’ve had great players and competed for titles in the past, the Pacers have more often, especially as of late, just been one of those pretty good teams. Aside from giving Lebron and the Heat a run for their money in the conference finals, the team has largely been average. Dating back to the time they traded the Kawhi Leonard pick for George Hill, there have definitely been some questionable choices made, but overall the front office decisions have been solid.

I definitely get the blue collar, hard working (gold swagger?), aspect of the team. The Pacers are a great underdog team and are consistently underrated.
