This past Saturday, May 10, the Indiana Pacers were the latest team to use the Smith Center as they prepared to face the Washington Wizards at Verizon Center in the NBA Playoffs.
Check out more from the Pacers practice, as well as other high-profile athletes and teams to grace the Smith Center hardwood...
Really cool meeting Larry Bird, Quinn Buckner, and the Pacers at work today. They were touched by all the dedication to Red. @GW_AD-- Ben Alden (@BenAlden610) May 10, 2014
The Chicago Bulls also practiced at Smith Center recently during their NBA Playoff First Round series against the Wizards
And so have the Toronto Raptors each of the last two years...
The Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz, to name a few, have also trained at Smith Center in recent years.
The most notable team, however, was not an NBA franchise, as in the summer of 2012, USA Basketball's Men's National Team used the Smith Center to begin its preparation for an eventual Gold Medal at the London Olympic Games.
