6. Jermaine O'Neal

The Indiana Pacers fanbase were scratching their heads when their team traded for Jermaine O'Neal and gave up Dale Davis to get him.  O'Neal had been in the NBA for four years and only started 18 Games for Portland, averaging only 11.5 Minutes per Game, so why would they trade for him?

Here's why.

70. Jermaine O'Neal

It was easy to forget just how good Jermaine O’Neal was. Seemingly always in someone’s shadow, O’Neal quietly went to six consecutive All-Star Games as a member of the Indiana Pacers. Drafted right out of high school by Portland, O’Neal’s best run was certainly in Indiana where he was known for his blocking and would generate four consecutive twenty Points per Game campaigns.
