A list of the best Indiana Pacers of all time. As one of the charter franchises of the ABA, the Pacers were founded in 1967.The most successful team in the fledgling league's history, the Pacers won three ABA championships in four years and made the finals five times in nine years. Those early Pacers teams had some of the best players in franchise history including superstars like Mel Daniels, George McGinnis and Roger Brown, who was the first Pacers player to be inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame.

After a decade spent near the bottom of the league, things started to turn around for the Pacers in 1987 when they drafted a lanky kid from UCLA, who some thought wasn't going to make it in the NBA. Reggie Miller proved them wrong and even to this day one of the greatest Pacers ever. The sharpshooting Miller is one of the greatest players in basketball history and led many of the most successful teams in Pacers history during the 1990s and early 2000s. Dale Davis, Rik Smits, Antonio Davis and Jermaine O'Neal were other outstanding players who played on those teams with Miller. 

After a bit of a rebuilding period, the Pacers roared back in the early 2010s. The team has three superstars in Paul George, Roy Hibbert and Danny Granger. It's rare for a NBA team to have one superstar, nevertheless the talent that Indiana has been able to accumulate. Though the franchise only has a few Hall of Famers, basketball history in Indiana is rich, which can be attributed to it's number of great players.

This is the list of the best Indiana Pacers of all time. If you see someone who should be on this list and isn't, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank the players based on who you think should be considered the greatest Indiana Pacers player ever.
