It’s about time NBA. Former Bruin and Pacer great Reggie Miller was finally selected into the Hall of Fame earlier today.
Miller was strangely enough passed over for the 2011 class, something that many fans couldn’t believe.
All of that is in the past now, as Miller will officially make his entrance this September in Springfield, MA, home of the Hall of Fame.
Miller spent four seasons at UCLA before being drafted No. 11 overall in the 1987 NBA Draft. He finished second in all-time scoring at UCLA behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
His NBA career picked up right where his college career left off. Miller shot the lights out of the ball, setting the NBA record for made three-pointers, 2,560, prior to Ray Allen breaking his record in 2011. He averaged 18.2 ppg (25,279 total career points) during his NBA career.
A five-time All-Star selection, he led the league in free throw accuracy five times and won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
