In short, the Pacers era under the troubled head coach was Jim O’Brien,

However, we will limit the scope of this article to trading only on the NBA franchise history of the hardcourt and Pacers since 1976.

We will also rank these moments according to their long-term repercussions on the Pacers franchise history.

3. Chuck Man, Kicking the Ball in the Chicago Stadium Stands, 1991

Chuck “The Rifleman” Person was an excellent marksman during his heyday with the Pacers.

The 1987 NBA Rookie of the Year could take the lights out if you dared him.

However, no one knew that the person had the potential to become an NFL kicker or punter.

Persson displayed his exceptional kicking skills during a regular-season game against the Chicago Bulls in the 1990–91 NBA season.

The referee called foul on person.

A desperate man thought Smuts had been dishonest.

The officers picked up the person and then it all went down.

The man summoned his inner Adam Vinatieri and booted basketball into Chicago Stadium not once – but twice.

Naturally, the authorities kicked him out of the game.

As he walked into the locker room, referee Bill Oakes came across Person’s face.

Persson had many memorable moments in Pacer Blue and Gold.

Unfortunately, the kicking incident at Chicago Stadium was not one of his finest moments with the team.

No one knows for sure whether the person’s fiery nature had anything to do with it.

2. Kawhi Leonard trades for George Hill for San Antonio Spurs, 2011

The Indiana Pacers named Kawhi Leonard the 15th overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft.

Fast forward 11 years later, Leonard has two NBA Championship rings, two NBA Finals MVP awards, and five NBA All-Star berths.

Ironically, he never achieved that in Pacers Blue and Gold.

Indy trades him and two unknowns, Davis Burtons And Erazem LorbekiFor the San Antonio Spurs, for point guard George Hill on draft day.

Hill for three possibilities seems absurd, more than a decade later.

What was even more sad was that one of those possibilities was a game-changer and a franchise player who could take the Pacers to the next level.

Hill was a serviceable point guard who was really more of a shooting guard.

He was instrumental during the meteoric rise of the Pacers during Paul George Era.

Leonard and George could have taken the pacers to greater heights in the 2010s.

I wish it was nothing more than a pipe dream.

Today, Leonard and George are clicking on all cylinders with their hometown Los Angeles Clippers.

For the Pacers, he finished his worst season in three decades.

1. Malice in the Palace, 2004

what else?

NBA experts are still asking questions today in the infamous “Malice at the Palace” in November 2004.

what if ben wallace Never rocked Ron Artest?

What if Ron Artest never reacted to a fan throwing a cup of water at the scorer’s table?

What if Artest and Stephen Jackson never made it to the stands and slammed several Detroit Pistons fans?

For one, the pacers would never have had a formidable reputation.

The Pacers team of 2004–05 was one of the best in recent memory – it included Artest, Jackson, Reggie MillerJamal Tinsley, Jermaine O’Neill, Jeff Foster, Austin CroshereAnd Scott Pollard,

On that note, Miller may have earned that elusive championship ring.

The Pacers would have won their first title in NBA franchise history.

Alas, the malice in the palace hindered the pacers’ path to greatness.

Although Indiana scored some impressive playoff runs in later years, the 2004–05 NBA season was their best shot at building a championship banner at the old Conseco Fieldhouse.

It all fell into one stroke in the fall of 2004 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
