Former Indiana Pacers star Reggie Miller started off his acceptance speech at the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame by thanking the committee and saying he was excited to be inducted with Jamaal Wilkes, who he grew up admiring. Miller was also grateful that Mel Daniels was being inducted at the same time, because Daniels was one of the first people he met as a rookie with the Pacers.
While Miller was a trash talker during his career, he was the complete opposite and very grateful to have played with every player during his career, which is what he said Thursday. During his speech, he asked players who he played with who were in attendance to stand up and he gave those players a round of applause.
Miller also gave a huge thanks to his sister, Cheryl Miller, by saying that he would not be on this stage if not for her, teared up as he spoke. She is already a member of the hall of fame.
At the end of the speech, he once again went back to thanking all of those who supported him along the way during his NBA career.
