48. Stephen Jackson

  • 3 seasons, 169 games.
  • 16.6 points per game
  • 3.9 rebounds per game

Stephen Jackson’s time in Indiana was likely cut short due to the issues after the Malice at the Palace. This is not unique to Jackson given that many Pacers players careers were upended during that event. However, Stephen was an excellent power forward during the Jermain O’Neal years and the final Reggie years, playing 3 total seasons with the Pacers. He was an excellent offensive player and not a bad defender either.
