    Default Best move in Pacers history?

    I gotta go with JO, though drafting Reggie was probably the best even when I remember being hating on the pick when the Pacers choosed Reggie

    Whats your favorite move in Pacers history?

    2000 Traded Dale Davis to Portland for JO.
    Thats the Best Move in my books by far.

    JO is an all-star starter - trading for him was the best move in the Pacers short NBA history.

    In the ABA, stealing Mel Daniels was huge; as was signing Roger Brown.

    Let's hope the second best NBA move will be the trade of Ron Artest to Timbuktu.

    Best move? From MSA to Conseco. I hated MSA. Plus Conseco has given us national notariety (SP).

    I still prefer the lighting at the Colesium. During gametime they turned off the lights over the crowd and only had lights on the floor. It focused more on the game. When they switched to MSA and the lights remained on all of the time it became more of a see-and-be-seen atmosphere. (cause and effect disputable)

    As for players w/o a doubt, the drafting of Reggie.

    Trading in our old GM for Donnie Walsh back in the 1980's Without him, we'd probably never became a legitimate NBA team and would still be like the Raptors are now. Sure, we've yet to win an NBA championship, but weve always had competetive teams and I think we always will as long as Donnie Walsh is around.

    I think the move that put us over the top was trading for McKey. All the ECF's runs we had were due in large part for getting more of a defensive stopper that did all the little things rather than offense off the bench.

    The drafting of Chuck Person was the start of the Pacers becoming a respectable team, before that we were compared to the Clippers as one of the worst NBA franchises. Not the single best move, but it was the start of it all.

    Hiring Larry Brown. There was no respetcability for the Pacers in the NBA until Brown whipped them into a tougher team. Even after he left, the pacers continued to feed of their initial success.

    Also, Reggie Miller didn't become "Reggie Miller" until Brown became the coach. The Pacers met the Knicks in 1993 pre-Brown and there was no "Miller knick killer" in that series.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    The best move was getting JO. When RA is gone, then JO will be second

    How can trading Ron away be the best move in history? It wasn't by choice, and it also means we traded for him to begin with. Which was obviously a mistake. I'm just not seeing that one.

    Very true... There was a telethon to keep the Pacers in Indy.

    Since the 61 win season he has been nothing but a headache. He destroyed a camera at the garden. He migrained the Detroit series in the playoffs. Started a riot. Promoted his record label in the wake of the indoor fiasco at the expense of his teamates whom he cost millions of dollars and court time/police record. Suspended multiple times. Screwed up Reggies last season etc. etc. etc.

    I don't care how great you are at defense and beating your man in the post, he destroys franchises from within. Trading him away will be a great move. We can win without him, 4 of 5 so far.

    Read it very clearly, the title of the thread is: Best move in Pacers history?

    When RA is gone it will be the best move. He has head problems! Regardless that we traded for him or that he requested a trade. He destroys franchises from within, he is not a team player and has become a very selfish person. What's your point?
