10. Vern Fleming

From the span of 1984-95, Vern Fleming was in absolute control of the Indiana Pacer offense. A steady and reliable player, Fleming wasn’t known for flash or the ability to make the highlight reel, but his game was consistent – a trait any team can appreciate. In 11 seasons with Indiana, he placed among the top 10 for points, assists, rebounds and steals in franchise history with team averages of 11.7 PPG, 4.8 APG and 3.4 RPG. To add to his case of being a fan favorite in Indiana and a true Pacer at heart, Fleming went on to be one of the Indiana Pacers former head coach Isiah Thomas’ assistants in the 2000-01 season. Pretty interesting stuff, Vern Fleming is one of the best point guards in Pacers history and just good enough to crack the top 10 of this list of great players from the 1984 NBA draft.
