The Indiana Pacers were founded in 1967 as an ABA team and have played in the NBA since 1976. They are assigned to the Central Division of the Eastern Conference and play their home games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in front of up to 18,435 spectators in Indianapolis. The team colors are blue, gold and gray.
While the Pacers in the ABA were still one of the strongest teams with 3 titles, the merger with the NBA no longer continued as successfully as of 1976. From 1987, when the future franchise player Reggie Miller was drafted, things went uphill. The Dutch center Rik Smits and the German forward Detlef Schrempf complemented the Pacers excellently, so that head coach Larry Brown was to be expected from 1993 with the Indiana Pacers. With Chris Mullin, Mark Jackson and Jalen Rose, the Pacers even made it into the NBA final in 2000, but the Los Angeles Lakers triumphed with 4-2 wins. In 2004, under coach Rick Carlisle, they achieved the best record in team history with 61 wins, but they still missed the NBA finals. Shortly thereafter, the Malice at the Palace was an inglorious climax in Pacer's history. Ron Artest, Stephen Jackson and Jermaine O'Neal were embroiled in a brawl against the Detroit Pistons and their fans. As a consequence, some of these players received substantial fines. From 2006 things went downhill in terms of sport and the playoffs were missed for the next 5 years. In 2010 the next franchise star Paul George was drafted, with whom the sporting success returned, so that in 2014 they became the best team in the east. However, you could not prevail in the playoffs in the fight for the NBA final again against the Miami Heat around LeBron James. In 2017 they separated from Paul George and traded him against Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis, with whom the Pacers want to build a new young troupe.

What colors and logos are most popular?
The Indiana Pacers team colors are blue, gold and gray. Most Indiana Pacers hats are therefore blue or classic black. The team logo was originally a blue P with an arm inside holding a yellow basketball. In 1991, however, the arm was removed and the basketball now has three stripes going out of the P to the left. This should represent the speed with which the players play on the course as well as symbolize the car races in the region. After the logo got a gray contour in 2006, it was set in a white circle in 2017, which has a bold yellow contour in which the team name is written. Most of the current Indiana Pacers use the current logo. The logo with the arm is also used as retro hats, as well as the alternative hickory design that made Hoosier's basketball popular in Indiana through the movie.
