The Indiana Pacers have consistently been home to superstar players throughout its rich history. The franchise has been around since 1967 and played in both the ABA and NBA.
With that said, we take a look at the five greatest Pacers of all time. There is no shortage of players to choose from, as eight Hall of Famers and 49 All-Stars have played for Indiana at some point.
5. Mark Jackson
In six seasons with the Pacers, Mark Jackson averaged 8.4 points and 8.1 assists a night over 405 games. He is one of the most underrated point guards in NBA history.
Jackson is Indiana's all-time leader in assists per game and assists percentage. He's also third in total assists with 3,294.
4. Paul George
In 448 games with the Pacers, Paul George put up 18.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists over seven seasons. The swingman made four All-Star teams with Indy and won the 2013 Most Improved Player of the Year Award.
George is fifth in Indiana franchise history in steals, racking up 740 with the Pacers. He told Indy he wasn't going to re-sign with them in the summer of 2018, so the franchise traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the offseason of 2017.
George currently plays for the Los Angeles Clippers.
3. Mel Daniels
Mel Daniels won three ABA championships with the Pacers while also capturing two ABA MVP trophies. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2012.
“Big Mel” never played in the NBA with the Pacers. He averaged 19.4 points and 16.0 rebounds for the team in 479 ABA games.
Daniels is the franchise leader in defensive rebounds, total rebounds, minutes per game and rebounds per game. He's one of the best big men in basketball history.
2. George McGinnis
In a total of 487 games for the Pacers franchise between the ABA and NBA, George McGinnis averaged 19.6 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists a night. He won two ABA titles with Indiana in 1972 and 1973.
McGinnis was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017. He's seventh in Pacers franchise in points scored with 9,545.
1. Reggie Miller
One of the deadliest shooters of all time, Reggie Miller averaged 18.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists during his stellar career with the Pacers. Although Miller wasn't able to win a title in Indiana, he is still the most popular player in franchise history.
The sharpshooter, who played his college ball at UCLA, shot 39.5 percent from deep and made 2,560 shots from beyond the arc during his Hall of Fame career. Miller played in five All-Star Games during his run with Indiana and established himself as one of the top trash-talkers of all time.
