Indiana Pacer legend, Reggie Miller has described his induction into the NBA Hall of Fame as ‘humbling’, before a packed press conference last night.
Recognised as one of the finest players of his generation, due to his prolific scoring, clutch shooting and supreme athletic ability. Miller’s inclusion amongst names such as Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson was just a question of time.
In a career spanning almost two decades, the accolade is merely another to add to long list of career highlights. 5-time All Star, Eastern Conference Champion, 2nd overall on 3-Point scorers list, 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist with 144 playoff appearances; the only accomplishment that eluded Miller, was an NBA championship.
Reggie Miller was also joined on stage by sister Cheryl Miller, who was enshrined in the Hall of Fame some 17 years previously.
Reggie heaping praise on his sister, in providing him with a role model to aspire by:
“Without Cheryl’s hard work and dedication to the game of basketball, I don’t know if I would ever be on this stage. She’s the reason why I’m here.”
“If you were going to tell me you would have two Hall of Famers from the same family, I probably would have looked at you like you were crazy,”
Other inductees into the class of 2012 included; 3-time Coach of the Year Don Nelson; Rockets legend Ralph Sampson and 1980’s L.A Lakers champion Jamaal Wilkes.
