Shaquille O'Neal Doesn't Think We Need A Rule About 'Hack-A-Shaq'
Huffington Post - 9 months
Shaquille O'Neal may have retired in 2011, but the 44-year-old four-time world champion remains at the forefront of the NBA discussion. O'Neal, who has become an integral part of TNT's Emmy-winning NBA broadcast, spoke with The Huffington Post recently to discuss the Dwight Howard saga, Kobe Bryant's legacy and how he thinks Stephen Curry would fare in his era. What did you think of Dwight Howard's interview the other day with the TNT crew? He seemed candid. I thought it was very honest. This life that we live in, you have to perform to a certain level, or you’ll always be susceptible to criticism. Some people can take it well and some people can’t. When you call yourself a Superman or call yourself a great player, but then you don’t play like that, then of course everyone questions your character. I thought he handled himself well; I thought he was very eloquent in his speech. I think he’s got about four or five years left to go get [a championship], so good luck. I kind ...

UCLA Basketball: The Birth of Apathy and the Death Spiral of College Hoops
Bruins Nation - about 3 years
College basketball used to be a special game, especially the unique and special brand of hoops founded in Westwood by a man who was not only one of the greatest coaches of all time, but one of the best human beings of all time. Now, it's a broken game used as a final pre-NBA showcase for one-and-done AAU mercenaries, with the head chair in Westwood occupied by a mediocre coach who is not only embraces nepotism to the detriment of UCLA, but is an unrepentant, arrogant, rape apologist who has done nothing but sully the UCLA name. So, if you've been paying attention, it would appear that our Bruins went to Salt Lake City last night and got beat by an inferior Utah Utes squad in a manner that calling it Lavin-esque would be unfair to Steve Lavin. But I wouldn't know. Why? I didn't watch the game. In fact, I haven't watched very many games at all this season. Actually, the more I think of it, I think I've only watched one, maybe two. And even then, I wasn't really watch ...

Stephen Curry Casually Knocks Down Shot from the Tunnel Before Playing Denver
Bleacher Report - about 3 years
Getting buckets from 40-plus feet? Just another day in the life for Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors guard struggled against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, but appeared ice-cold in pregame warmups.  In a very casual manner, Curry lined up one last shot before heading into the locker room for final preparations. Standing in the tunnel at Oracle Arena, he heaved a whimsical goof shot toward the rim. Naturally, Curry drained it. The ridiculously casual bucket was spotted by Pete Blackburn of Next Impulse Sports, and a perfect .GIF of the moment was made by @CJZero. Curry hit the shot and then high-fived the ushers—because that’s how he rolls.  These kind of circus shots are becoming a bit of a signature for Curry. Earlier this week, he nailed a one-arm full-court shot in practice.  Again, another cool reaction from a man who knows he has the touch. Was it a bit of luck? Sure. Could he make two in a row? Probably not. Regardless, he’s one of the last g ...

A View of Alford from an Indiana Fan
Bruins Nation - over 3 years
Before I leave Philadelphia back home to LA in a few hours, I want to take the time to share a conversation I had with an Indiana fan who attended high school with Alford. I was with a coworker when this gentleman came by and started small talk about what the firm I work for does. He began talking about Indiana and I told him my coworker attended Purdue. Well, he gave her a little friendly rivalry talk and then he talked about basketball. I told him one of his boys was hired to coach my Bruins. This is where it began to get interesting. He asked me how I felt about the hire and I told him I - and many others - are not happy with the hire. Once I said that, he had a look of shock on his face. He asked me why, since he apparently is a good coach and will win many games for UCLA. I told him I didn't approve of UCLA hiring a person who protected his player that was accused of sexually assaulting a young lady. His response was that he did the correct thing by protecting hi ...

Reggie Miller analyzes Warriors, says Steph Curry is ‘just scratching the surface of his ceiling’
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
TNT NBA analyst Reggie Miller will probably be a general manager one day, so he’ll get to construct his own team, but you get the idea that the Hall of Fame guard really likes the model the Warriors used to build their roster. Ahead of calling the Thursday’s game between the Warriors and Thunder, Miller offered a glowing review of the Warriors’ starting lineup during a phone interview. Stephen Curry: “I think he’s just scratching the surface of his ceiling right now. What really gets overlooked when you look at Steph’s game is his play-making and assist ability. Because he shoots the basketball so well, from so deep and with Read More

    FORTIES
  • 2012
    On September 7, 2012, Miller was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
    More Details Hide Details Miller was born in Riverside, California. He was born with hip deformities, which caused an inability to walk correctly. After a few years of continuously wearing braces on both legs, his leg strength grew enough to compensate. One of five siblings, he comes from an athletic family. His brother Darrell is a former Major League Baseball player (catcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim); his sister Tammy played volleyball at Cal State Fullerton; and his older sister Cheryl is a Hall of Fame basketball player. Cheryl was a member of the 1984 U.S. gold-medal winning Olympic basketball team and is currently an analyst for Turner Sports. One of the family anecdotes Reggie liked to recall was when Cheryl used to beat him in games of 1-on-1 prior to his professional career. According to Reggie, they quit playing when he was finally able to block Cheryl's shot. Miller claims that his unorthodox shooting style was developed to arc his shot over his sister's constant shot blocking. The Millers also had a son Saul, Jr. who became a musician and followed his father in military service.
  • 2011
    Beginning in 2011, Miller has worked as a TV analyst for the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship tournament.

    Miller served as the 2005 Indianapolis 500 Festival Parade Grand Marshal.
    More Details Hide Details Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein, OSB of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis opened the day with the prayer "Keep these drivers safe and God bless Reggie!" before Miller waved the green flag to start the race.
    Miller's last game was on May 19, 2005, at Conseco Fieldhouse, when the Pacers lost 88–79 to the Detroit Pistons in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, ending the series 4–2.
    More Details Hide Details In the game, Miller led the Pacers with 27 points, making 11 out of 16 field goals including four of eight three-pointers. When he was taken out with 15.7 seconds to play, the Indianapolis crowd gave him a final standing ovation, where there were many teary eyes. Then-Pistons coach (and former Pacers coach) Larry Brown called an additional timeout during which the Pistons players joined in the ovation, a moment which provided closure to Miller's career and to a season that had been overshadowed by the brawl between the two teams. This won the 2005 Best Moment ESPY Award. Over his 18-year NBA career, Miller made over $105,000,000 in salary, playing in 1,389 games for the Pacers. His 18 seasons with a single franchise over an entire career is surpassed only by Kobe Bryant's 20 with the Los Angeles Lakers, John Stockton's 19 with the Utah Jazz, and Tim Duncan's 19 with the San Antonio Spurs. Reggie Miller is widely recognized as one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. Miller is one of only a handful of shooters to join the 50–40–90 club and has made 2,560 3-pointers in his career, which was an NBA record at the time of his retirement. His total has since been surpassed by Ray Allen.
    In 2005, following the lengthy suspensions of star teammates O'Neal, Stephen Jackson, and Ron Artest for a brawl with fans in Detroit, Miller averaged nearly 20 points per game for stretches of the season.
    More Details Hide Details He scored 39 points against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 18 at the age of 39. In January, Miller angrily shot down rumors that he would retire at the end of the season, saying that if he did decide to retire, he would announce it through his sister Cheryl. On February 10, Cheryl, now a sideline reporter for TNT, reported that her brother had told her the previous day that he would indeed retire. On April 11, in a game against the Toronto Raptors, Miller passed Jerry West to move into 12th on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
    O'Neal's respect for Miller was most evident on January 4, 2005, when after scoring 55 points against the Milwaukee Bucks, O'Neal agreed to be taken out of the game with 1:43 remaining to preserve Miller's record of 57 points.

  • 2002
    Miller was injured during the 2002 World Championships and played limited minutes.
    More Details Hide Details
    He did not return to the USA Team until the 2002 FIBA World Championship. The 2002 team did not win that year's championship, marking the first time that NBA players competed against international competition and lost.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2002, Miller almost single-handedly eliminated the top seed and eventual Eastern Conference Champion New Jersey Nets in the fifth and final game of the first round of the playoffs.
    More Details Hide Details First, following two missed free throws from New Jersey's Richard Jefferson, Miller sent the game into overtime by banking in a three-pointer at the buzzer. Next, with the Pacers down by two points in the final seconds of the first overtime, Miller drove into the lane and dunked over three Nets defenders to send the game into a second overtime. While the Pacers would eventually lose to the Nets 120–109, the game added another chapter to Miller's legacy as a clutch performer. In the twilight of his career, Miller deferred his leadership role to All-Star teammate Jermaine O'Neal. Miller was an important locker-room leader for his team and served as an inspiration to his teammates who wanted to "win one championship for 'Uncle Reg'". While Miller was no longer the team's leading scorer, he remained a go-to player in crunch time to the end of his career.
  • 2000
    Game 6 at Madison Square Garden on June 2, 2000 was sealed by Miller's 34 points, with 17 coming in the fourth quarter to help Indiana clinch the series with a 93–80 victory over the Knicks.
    More Details Hide Details The Pacers advanced to the NBA Finals for the first and only time in franchise history, facing the Los Angeles Lakers led by Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. The Pacers lost the series 4–2 as Miller averaged 24.3 points per game for the series.
    In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers on May 6, 2000, Miller and teammate Jalen Rose each scored 40 points—becoming the highest-scoring pair of teammates in playoff history, in the Pacers' 108–91 victory.
    More Details Hide Details The Pacers won that series 4–2 and returned to the Eastern Conference Finals for the fifth time in seven years. This time they finally broke through, defeating the rival Knicks 4–2.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    Following Jordan's retirement, Miller and the Pacers were considered one of the favorites in the East heading into the lockout-shortened 1999 season.
    More Details Hide Details After earning the #2 seed in the East, the Pacers once again met the Knicks in the Eastern Conference Finals. That series came to a disappointing end for Indiana, as the eighth-seeded Knicks upset the Pacers in six games. In the decisive sixth game, Miller had one of the worst performances of his career, scoring just 8 points on 3-of-18 shooting from the field. He also missed seven of his eight 3-point attempts.
  • 1996
    Near the end of the 1996 season, Miller fell to the floor and suffered an eye injury, leaving him unable to play in the playoffs until Game 5 of the first round against the Atlanta Hawks, where he wore goggles.
    More Details Hide Details The Pacers lost to the Hawks and were eliminated. Around this time, Miller hosted a talk show on WTHR called The Reggie Miller Show. After missing the playoffs in the 1997 season, the Pacers returned to the postseason in 1998. They would defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers and Knicks en route to the Eastern Conference Finals where they would face Michael Jordan and the defending champion Bulls. On May 25, 1998, the Pacers trailed Chicago 2–1 in the series and were behind 94–93 in Game 4 at home in Market Square Arena with 2.9 seconds left. Miller got free from Jordan, caught the inbound pass from Derrick McKey, turned and made a game-winning 3-pointer with .7 seconds to go. The Pacers eventually pushed the series to a decisive Game 7 in Chicago, a game in which the Pacers led in the fourth quarter before fading in the final two minutes. The Bulls won 88–83 and went on to win their sixth and final championship of the Michael Jordan/Scottie Pippen era.
  • 1995
    On May 7, 1995, Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Knicks, leading the Pacers to a stunning 107–105 victory.
    More Details Hide Details With 18.7 seconds remaining and the Pacers trailing 105–99, Miller took the inbounds pass from Mark Jackson, made a 3-pointer, stole the inbounds pass from Anthony Mason, dribbled back behind the arc and tied the game with another 3, stunning the crowd at Madison Square Garden. On the ensuing possession, Knicks guard John Starks was fouled by Sam Mitchell. Starks missed both free throws, and although Patrick Ewing managed to get the offensive rebound, his shot was just a bit long and hit the back rim. Miller got the rebound and was fouled with 7.5 seconds left. He made both free throws. Trailing by 2, New York had one last chance to win the game, but failed to get a shot off, giving the Pacers a shocking 1–0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Pacers outlasted the Knicks in seven games before losing to the Orlando Magic in the Conference Finals in seven games, just like the previous year.
  • 1994
    Miller was a member of two gold medal-winning teams, the US national team for the 1994 FIBA World Championship and the Olympic men's basketball team in 1996.
    More Details Hide Details He averaged 17.1 points, 52.6% shooting, and was 19 for 20 from free throws and was second-leading scorer behind Shaquille O'Neal in the 1994 tournament. In 1996, he averaged 11.4 points and had the second-highest total points (91). He started 5 out of the 8 games and shared the shooting guard rotation with Mitch Richmond.
    Miller became a household name during the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals against the Knicks, due to a phenomenal shooting performance in Game 5 on June 1, 1994, in which he scored 39 points (25 in the fourth quarter alone) in the Pacers' 93–86 victory at Madison Square Garden.
    More Details Hide Details Miller made several long 3-pointers during the quarter and engaged in an animated discussion of his ongoing performance with noted Knicks fan Spike Lee, who was, as always, seated courtside. The win gave the Pacers a 3–2 series lead over the heavily favored Knicks, but they lost the next 2 games and the series.
  • 1992
    The 57 points he scored was the second highest total in the NBA during the 1992–93 season (only Michael Jordan's 64 against Orlando on January 16 was higher), and still stands today as the Pacers' team record.
    More Details Hide Details
    On November 28, 1992, he scored a career-high 57 points against the Charlotte Hornets in a 134–122 win at Charlotte Coliseum.
    More Details Hide Details In this game, Miller hit 16 of 29 field goals, 4 of 11 3-pointers, and 21 of 23 free throws.
