Last Thursday I was passing through the indianapolis airport.  While waiting for the shuttle to my hotel, I saw a stretch limo.  A tall thin white man with a crew cut was escorted to it by a couple of suits.  These two guys were all smiles.  The player kept an impassive look on his face.  I am guessing he is European, but he could be some homegrown talent.  

I am making several assumptions.  1) He was a pro basketball player.
2) He was visiting the Pacers.

I am guessing this guy was 6'6" to 6'8", maybe 210 pounds.  Prominent nose and jaw with medium brown hair.  My first thought was Kirilenko. but that is extremely unlikely, unless he was in town for something totally unrelated.  

Any rumors or guesses?  For all I know, this had nothing to do with the Pacers.  Maybe he is a chemist and they were taking him to Eli Lilly.

Can you give us a few more hints?

What was he wearing? Did he have a briefcase, or a backpack, or nothing? Was he alone, or did he have a wife/girlfriend/boyfriend?

A couple years ago I was at the Raleigh NC airport to pick up my wife. I was waiting at the bottom of the escalator at baggage claim and sure enough, David Robinson was on her plane. He didn't have any luggage and walked out with a friend. No limo, no suits, etc...

I'm not sure pro basketball players dress formally when they travel...but what do I know?

I'm not trying to keep any information.  I want to know who the guy was.   Dark, dressy pant, and a white shirt, I believe it was a pull over, but can't remember exactly.  He was dressed up, but not like a businessman would dress for an interview.  More like casual business attire.  One of the other guys with him had two bags.  The other guy held the door for the "player".  they both got in the back with him.  Since one held the door for him and the other was carrying the bags, I assumed he was the main guest.

Nobody else was with them, except of course for the driver and possibly anyone waiting in the back of the limo.

I know that Thursday was the day Harrington was announced in Indy, so Walsh and Bird may have been busy with him.  Unless this visit was scheduled in advance, it seems like poor timing to bring in another player.  

One of the guys at work suggested Wally Szerbiac.  I couldn't say yes or no.  I had mainly a side view from 75 feet away.  I was watching the Limo to see who would get out and just saw the three guys as they approached and got in.  Maybe 10 seconds of actually looking to see who the guy was.
