No fried chicken tonight

Updated: Feb 8, 2019



It’s 1980. The Indiana Pacers are hosting the San Antonio Spurs. The Pacers have a promotion for the game -- hold San Antonio’s George Gervin to under 30 points for the game, and everyone in attendance will get free fried chicken. Iceman finds out. Iceman doesn’t like that.

In the first half, Ice drops 25 points. He’s walking to the locker room. He has a message for the crowd.

“No chicken tonight!”

The Iceman finishes the game with 55 points and the Spurs win, 144-130.

No chicken tonight.
