VIDEO: Myles Turner, Nate McMillan, Kevin Pritchard discuss the new St. Vincent Center

Prior to the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Pacers’ new practice facility, the St. Vincent Center, local reporters were invited on a tour throughout the $50 million facility.

It’s mighty impressive. And, as several inside said, it makes you never want to leave.

It’s a five-story, 130,000-square-foot facility that features two regulation basketball courts, an upgrade training and weight rooms, a recovery room, and a player’s lounge.

“This is a monumental day for our franchise and underscores my family’s commitment to the city and the franchise,” team owner Herb Simon said in a statement. “Competing at the highest level of basketball means we must provide a training facility that can help these elite athletes prepare to perform at their optimum level. And we are overjoyed to have such a wonderful and equally committed partner in St. Vincent.”
