Reggie Miller will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame on Friday.
Former Pacers star Reggie Miller will join his sister Cheryl in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday, making them the first brother-sister tandem to join the prestigious group.
Miller played 18 seasons in the NBA, all with Pacers. He averaged 18.2 points a game and is known for leading Indiana to Eastern Conference playoff showdowns with the Knicks. Perhaps the highlight of his career came in 1995 when he scored eight points in nine seconds against the Knicks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Miller retired with a career average of 39.5 percent shooting from 3-point range.
Durability isn't always a word associated with Miller, but he only missed eight games in his first six seasons and all eight of those games were in his second season (1988-89).
Miller is one of 12 inductees, joining Don Nelson and Nike co-founder Phil Knight in the biggest HOF class in more than 50 years. Miller now works as an NBA analyst for TNT.
