All Time Most Positive Influence on the Indiana Pacers Franchise

This won't be as easy as you think.

The reason I say this isn't going to be easy is because in many ways these guys all interlock with one another and one may not have existed without the other.

As Sandman says, without the Simons we don't have a franchise, however to counter that without Slick putting together and running the telethon the Pacers never would have gotten to the Simons for the franchise.

Reggie gave us national exposure however until Larry Brown came along and changed the entire culture of the club Reggie Miller was just a 7 year veteran who basically underachieved and wasn't even considered one of the top guards in the years he played let alone one of the greatest of all time.

Larry Bird took what Brown did and took his national reputation and took us to even another level.

I'm just arguing to argue at this point, it's all subjective but I'm just pointing out this isn't easy at all.

Pick one.
