Happy Birthday Reggie Miller!

You want to know how many Reggie Miller threes I watched as a kid? Boom baby! became one of my catch phrases. Not only am I yelling it at least 10 times during every basketball video game I play, but I use it in real-life situations as well (it’s a bad habit). Because of so many huge playoff moments, Miller was one of the faces of the ’90s generation. The question for me though is was it warranted? In 18 years, he only made three All-NBA teams and five All-Star games. At the same time, he dropped over 25K points and is the owner of dozens of memorable clutch shots…

Was Reggie Miller underrated or overrated?

    after MJ, reggie was my 2nd favorite player growing up. dude looked as skinny as me when i was in elementary and the way he runs around picks and uses his body, hands, and arms to push people around was fun to watch. i used to love running around picks myself, catching the perfect chest pass and rising up, thinking “miller” as i released my shot.

    reggie’s my hero ever since..i know he’s a villain to many, but like he said, he’s not the best athlete, not the fastest/quickest, but yes he did play well with the best. For me he’s a hall of famer!
