Reggie Miller

Enshrined 2012
Riverside, CA
Born: August 24, 1965

Biography

His clutch shooting and never-say-die attitude made him one of the most feared shooters in basketball. His late-game heroics and inspired trash talking made him a wanted man in Madison Square Garden. Reggie Miller always seemed to find a way to one-up the Eastern Conference rival New York Knickerbockers when it mattered most. The sleek shooting guard dominated in the closing moments when “Miller Time” rained down on helpless defenders. Miller shined when the game was on the line. At UCLA, the California native led the Bruins to the 1985 NIT championship and the 1987 Pac-10 title. The first round draft pick of the Indiana Pacers played all 18 seasons of his professional career in the Hoosier State. Miller, a five-time NBA All Star, scored over 25,000 points in the league and at the time of his retirement held the NBA record for three-point field goals made in a career with 2,560. Miller won gold playing for the 1996 United States Olympic team and a gold medal at the 1994 FIBA World Championships.
