Best Value: Reggie Miller, No. 11, 1987. The selection of Miller — over the objections of Pacers fans who wanted Indiana to take hometown favorite Steve Alford — changed the direction of the franchise. Miller turned the fans' draft-night boos into cheers by helping the Pacers become perennial contenders from the mid-1990s until his retirement in 2005.
Worst Value: Rick Robey, No. 3, 1978. Larry Bird was eligible for this draft, but the Pacers decided not to wait a year for the Indiana native, who was headed back to college for his senior season. Bird was taken by Boston at No. 6. The Pacers actually had the top pick, but traded down to No. 3 to acquire Johnny Davis. Davis played fine for Indiana. Robey played only half a season for the Pacers — although he later won a title alongside Bird in Boston.(Photo: Getty Images)
