The Indiana Pacers have gone through a few different stylistic changes through the years in their uniform selection. Looking back at the last five uniforms for the Pacers also means reflecting on current and former players that wore said uniforms.
For me personally, it feels like each year over the past few seasons the city jersey has improved in some way year to year. Here is a picture of each of the past five jerseys, as I took to Twitter to see how Indiana fans themselves would rank each jersey.
To start with my personal least favorite is the gray 18-19 city uniforms. The Pacers actually had a slightly better version of the same jersey as an “earned edition” which was the same jersey, but white.
Scrolling through the responses I got on Twitter, these seem to be the majority least favorite as well. One player you may remember but might not want to would be Tyreke Evans, who was in town for the duration of this uniform.
Tyreke Evans spent one season with the Pacers and was fairly unlucky in his stint with the team. First, he had to wear these jerseys which were then followed by a two-year suspension from the NBA for “testing positive for a prohibited substance under the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program”.
Evans averaged 10.2 points per game (career-low) and shot 38.9% from the field in his 69 games played.
These uniforms are just meh to me. The grey doesn’t excite and the dark blue with random stripes on the side just doesn’t appeal to the eye. The earned edition was better, but not great.
