    Ditto. Amazingly, Reggie has had more positive impact to the franchise than Artest has brought negative. Ronnie has only had an opportunity to damage the franchise for a short period in comparison. It will be very good when he is gone, regardless whether it eliminates an opportunity for a championship in the short term. Artest will be a bad dream a few years from now.

    Without Donnie Walsh, there is no Larry Brown.

    Honestly, I'm shocked I'm the only person who went with Donnie Walsh. I thought most of the posters here had more rerspect for him then that. *shrug*

    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.
    http://www.nba.com/playerfile/reggie_miller/bio.html

    ....Again phenomenal in the playoffs, although Indiana lost to the New York Knicks in the first round....Tied a playoff record for free-throw accuracy by hitting 17 of 17 attempts in Game 1, then went on to average 31.5 points for the series, hitting 10 of 19 three-point attempts.

    Plus, there was the headbutt.

    As to answer the question, the acquisition of Satan.

    The only people who would have taken Alford at the 11th pick in 1987 would have been obsessive IU fans.

    Anyone with any NBA knowledge knew that Steve Alford had no business being taken with the 11th pick. He wasn't even taken in the first round(granted there were only 23 first round picks in 1987).

    People always make it out to sound like Donnie Walsh was faced with some dilema about Reggie Miller or Steve Alford. It wasn't even close. Any GM would have deserved to have been fired on the spot if they chose Steve Alford with the 11th pick.

    I don't think any one or top 3 best moves do anyone in the Franchise Justice, I think the history is full of great choices the franchise has made..

    and thats one of the reasons I Love my Pacers...

    Ah, Tan Tabak, the player so unknown it took 2 weeks just to spell the name on the back of his jersey right.....

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

    Yep, Norm Richardson is really lighting up the DL. And you wouldn't believe the numbers Travis is putting up in Russia.

    Its hard to separate Donnies promotion to GM, and his first three moves (hiring Jack Ramsay, drafting Chuck Person, and trading for John Long).

    That was an awfully good summer for the blue-and-gold.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
