15 games into the season, the Indiana Pacers lie in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference with a 6-9 win-loss card, a relatively okay record at this juncture considering that the Blue and Gold started off their campaign in putrid fashion amidst injuries and a new system, losing six out of their first seven contests.

While the Pacers are far from headline-grabbers, the team is still home to some talented difference-makers who should warrant All-Star consideration in next year’s festivities. Sure, the East’s household names cannot b trumped in popularity contests, but away from the casual eye, Indiana should not be devoid of someone to represent them in the All-Star game.

The Indiana Pacers should still be represented in the All-Star game this season

The Indiana Pacers have been represented in the All-Star game in every year since 2015, where the Blue and Gold failed to field one due to Paul George’s freak injury. In the previous two seasons, Domantas Sabonis repped the Blue and Gold, cementing his status as one of the league’s best young stars. Overall, the Circle City has been home to an All-Star nine times in the last ten years.

Indy doesn’t have a household name unlike their more glamorous counterparts, but these three players should warrant All-Star consideration with how they have performed so far in the season. In this piece, we rank them all and deduce who’s most likely to represent the Pacers in the All-Star game.
