While researching, Reborn, author, Mark Montieth spent decades conducting extensive interviews and gained access to previously unseen internal documents regarding the formation and early seasons of the Indiana Pacers in 1967. Reborn is the dramatic story of the noble, city-wide effort to establish the franchise after a 14-year hiatus from professional basketball in Indianapolis, as well as the tumultuous and electrifying early seasons when the franchise that thrives today first took root. More than merely recounting the games, Montieth delves into the unique personalities of some of the players and the social issues that influenced their careers. He also captures the carefree, raucous nature of professional basketball in a basketball-crazed state in the Sixties.
