I'm not going to sit here and front, I spent about 80% of Reggie Miller's 18 year career rooting against him. Also, I admittedly wanted the Pacers to lose against the Pistons, only because I feel that Detroit has a better chance to beat Miami and that 300 pound bitch named Shaquille O'Neal. But after I saw how his team, because of his leadership, was able to advance so far despite having lost one of their best players for the entire season, I have to give Miller props. Plus the guy had ice in his veins when it came to shooting the rock. I never saw a guy that could go 0 for 13 in a game, and still shoot it as if he was on a shooting streak. His deadly three point accuracy was amazing, and his classic battles with the Knicks, and for the matter Spike Lee, was a definite sight to see. A person would also be hard pressed to see another player who works so hard on both sides of the ball. Even though he never was able to get a ring, he had a amazing career, and the fact that he is leaving the game as a still productive player is honorable. You had a good run Reg.
