Biography

Reggie Miller was one of the greatest ever shooters in basketball, playing for the Indiana Pacers in the NBA for his entire 18-year professional career. Miller came from an athletic family, as his brother Darrell played Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Angels, and his sister, Cheryl, starred for Southern Cal and at the 1984 Olympics, and was considered, in that era, the greatest women’s player of all-time.

Reggie Miller played in college at UCLA, graduating in 1987. He was drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers with the 11th overall pick. Miller would go on to become the Pacers shooting guard for almost two decades, retiring in 2005. A tremendous outside shooter, Miller scored over 25,000 NBA points, averaging over 18 ppg for his career, and finishing as the NBA all-time leader in 3-point field goals, a mark later surpassed by Ray Allen. Miller played in the NBA All-Star Game five times, in 1990, 1995-96, 1998, and 2000.

Miller played for the USA twice internationally, winning gold medals at the 1994 World Championships, and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. After retiring he became a color commentator on televised basketball games.
