Miller is one of the 75 greatest players in NBA history and by far the best player in Pacers franchise history. That said, he didn’t always have the best teammates around him.
Sure, guys like Jalen Rose, Mark Jackson, and Dale Davis stand out as some of his best teammates, but there are always guys on the opposite end of the spectrum as well.
Let’s take a look at the 10 worst starters of the Miller era in Indiana. (To be considered a starter, they had to have started at least 20 games in a single season for the team.)
Ranking 10 worst Pacers starters of the Reggie Miller era: 10. Travis Best
Travis Best actually spent a lot of time with the Indiana Pacers, as they were the organization that drafted him. He was selected with the 23rd pick in the 1995 NBA Draft.
Best didn’t enter the league as a starter for the Pacers, but he eventually grew into the role, even if it was for a brief period of time. During his sophomore season in Indiana, Best appeared in 76 games and started 46 of them.
Unfortunately for the Pacers, Best wasn’t too effective that season, putting up fairly underwhelming numbers in his age-24 season, especially considering he was a first-round pick.
In his 76 games, Best averaged 9.9 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game while shooting 44.2% from the field and 36.8% from beyond the three-point line.
His stats weren’t too bad, but all in all, he certainly was one of the worst starters of the era, albeit the 10th worst.
