His composure and nerves of steel fascinated. His incredible shots in the last seconds were NBA classics. Miller held the Indiana 18-year career. During this time the Pacers went to the playoffs 15 times, six of them when they went to the finals of the conference. It was not as popular as say Michael Jordan.
It was not as tough as Karl Malone was not dominant and versatile player like Hakim Oladzhuvon. He was a shooter, jump shooter. For 18 years, playing an average of 77.2 games per season, Miller has spent more on the court 34 minutes in every game, running … running … and running from his counsel, opening out of the barriers to get the ball. Each of the custody of his defenders must have known that the transfer was followed by him and how, but irst dealt with this. Not for nothing analysts NBA with one voice called him the best in motion without the ball.
And then, suddenly make a breakthrough, when the defender was literally in a nanosecond behind, Miller gets the transfer, grouped and shoots. All efforts guardian cover shot prove futile. It's his game. Miller Time! It is not possible to stop. He paid no attention to fatigue and injuries did not stop to catch his breath. It was for him a luxury. He seemed to be trying to to drive his defender before his death. Are you familiar with the statistics of TSP (True Shooting Percentage)? It is used to measure the effectiveness of throws. This points scored in a time of possession. In NBA history to average 25 minutes per game and 8 attempts throws, only Dentli Adrian, Artis Gilmore and Jeff Miller Raland are higher. The latter two have been post, but Dentli almost no further shots. Meanwhile, Reggie Miller is the leader in three-point field throws executed (6486). In other words, a player who performed the most shots, also is the most effective sniper. Unbelievable. Ray Allen, who next season will break its record for most three-point shots, going 50-m After Miller's interest rate. Since the days of Reggie Miller's debut season in 1988, only Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant scored more points in his career (25 279). In the history of the league, only 16 players have more. When we are talking about the final throws, Reggie competes only with Michael, Larry Bird and Jerry West. Remember that unforgettable first game of the series with New York in the Eastern Conference finals in 1995, when Miller has done the impossible? And this crazy shot from nearly 13 feet in the fifth match series against the New Jersey Nets in 2002? A three for 2.9 seconds before the end of the fourth game with the Chicago Bulls in 1998, when he broke away from Jordan? The list goes on and on. The greatest sniper in the history of the game, Reggie Miller will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011, the year.
