Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Indiana Pacers.
Founded in 1967, the Indiana Pacers were an inaugural team of the American Basketball Association, and they were the most successful team in the upstart league with three championships (1970, 1972 & 1973). They would be one of four teams that would merge with the NBA in 1976, and they would struggle for years. While the three-time ABA Champs have yet to capture a title in the NBA, they contenders in the 1990s led by Reggie Miller.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2018-19 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
4. Roger Brown
5. Billy Knight
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
Look for or All-Time Top 50 Edmonton Oilers coming next!
As always we thank you for your support.
