HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Jermaine O’Neal and the Indiana Pacers will be forever linked. A stud post and franchise connected at the hip.
After spending several seasons chained to the bench in Portland, O’Neal became an All-Star and MVP candidate in Indiana.
Simply put, he was The Man. And if a certain forward doesn’t jump into the stands in Detroit, perhaps Indiana wins that elusive championship.
So when O’Neal calls it a career, Indiana should sign him to a one-day contract. And their favourite son would get to call it a day with the organization he loves.
The only thing more fitting and appropriate would have been if these two won a championship together.
Interesting. Also I am surprised this was not on here earlier
