Reggie Miller gave a super speech upon his induction to the Naismith Hall of Fame Friday night. He was warm, funny, self-deprecating, and yet still so confident in his own abilities and impishly proud of his constant needling. He told stories about being abused by Michael Jordan and what the game has meant to him. He also shared a very emotional moment with his sister, Cheryl.
Miller also finally owned up to pushing off on Greg Anthony in the 1995 Eastern Conference Finals, but justified it by talking about how Michael Jordan, who was in attendance presenting Phil Knight, also did it “all the time.”
It was a funny, touching tribute from one of the best three-point shooters of all time. Reggie Miller finally got his moment in the sun, and he handled it with grace, class, and still managed to entertain everyone watching. So much like his career.
