50th Season 2000s Central

2000s Decade Game

Ahead of our fifth "Decade Game" on Sunday, March 12, 2017, we spent the week celebrating the Pacers players and stories from the 2000s.

On game day, we welcomed back many memorable faces from the 2000s, including six-time All-Star Jermaine O'Neal, for a special halftime ceremony and all fans who attended the game received a bobblehead of All-Star forward Danny Granger.
