    Oscar Robertson?

    Larry Bird?


    Or is this just for the Pros?


    Tie, Reggie and Peyton.

    Reggie because he stayed with the Pacers all 18 of his pro years....and made the Pacers what they were.....(and they haven't been the same since he's been gone. :( )


    Peyton, because he brought Indy our first Championship of any kind (unless you count the Pacers ABA ones) and has been the NFL's MVP 3 times!



    Good Poll! :D

    Manning.

    Was Miller an MVP? Did the Pacers win the championship?

    Peyton, hands down. Miller is a pussy. They had the Bulls on the ropes in game six and he ran away from the ball in the 4th quarter. I couldn't believe my eyes. Bird couldn't believe it either.

    Sometimes that's not all it means.

    Did he stay with the SAME TEAM all 18 years? He could have gone anywhere in his heyday, but stayed with the Pacers. He's the man.

    The pacers didn't have much of a team. Rik Smits? Miller could never win MVP with someone named Michael Jordan in the league. (or the championship, for that matter).

    Miller is one of the best clutch shooters in history. maybe the best. Manning won MVP this year because Brady didn't play. Manning won the super bowl because Brady had Jabar Gafney and Reche Caldwell (who dropped that sure touchdown) while Manning had the best duo in history (except possibly Clayton and duper)

    Why is there no "Where's Indianapolis" option in the poll?
