Although Byron Scott is best remembered as a Los Angeles Laker, two years of his career were spent as the point guard for the Indiana Pacers. In reserve minutes, Scott averaged a little over 10 points per game, but he will be best remembered for his last-second shot in Game 1 of the 1994 playoffs against the Orlando Magic.

From the span of 1984-95, Vern Fleming was in control of the Indiana Pacer offense. Fleming wasn’t known for flash or the ability to make the highlight reel, but his game was consistent. In 11 seasons with Indiana, he placed among the top 10 for points, assists, rebounds and steals in franchise history.
