Finally, the only Indiana Pacer who has won an NBA Dunk Contest.
In doing so he beat out Chris Andersen, Ricky Davi, and the reigning champion Jason Richardson. For reference, Davis was just referred as the third-best dunker in Celtics history in an article by Bleacher Report's own Matthew Schmidt.
More than anything, Jones was a powerful dunker. He dunked in traffic, over big men and in transition, including a few big plays over the likes of Ben Wallace.
What makes this more impressive is that Jones was only 6'2". Still, he managed to carve out a successful career with the Pacers before beginning a journeyman career with four teams in four seasons.
Fred Jones will be remembered as one of the most spectacular dunkers in Indiana history, as well as the only Pacer to win a Dunk Contest. At least until Paul George hopefully takes the title!
