Wade has nearly 5,000 assists and averaged nearly six per game over his 13 years in Miami. “I would not be surprised with that Chicago Bulls team, you could put Dwyane Wade at point guard because of his dribble penetration and let him be more of a facilitator as opposed to going to the midpost and taking the beating,” Miller said. “As a younger player in Miami, there was a commercial, ‘Fall down eight times, get up nine,’ and I think that took a toll over the years on Dwyane Wade.
Reggie Miller said he thinks some NBA players will follow San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s lead in protesting during the national anthem this season. The former Pacers superstar spoke to Chelsea Handler on her Netflix show “Chelsea.” He called the NBA a “copycat league” and said he can see some players protesting or kneeling. “I’m an Air Force brat, a military brat,” he said. “It was kind of ingrained for us to stand up at attention and respect it… I am 100 percent ‘Team Kaepernick’ because what this is doing, finally, is opening up a discussion that needs to be said…People think it’s about the military and it’s disrespecting the government. No. What he is standing up for is what’s going on in America, on our streets.”
On Wednesday morning, the staff of Pacers Sports & Entertainment gathered on the main court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to congratulate Pacers forward Paul George on winning a gold medal with USA Basketball at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. George, the first Pacers player to win an Olympic medal since Reggie Miller in 1996, arrived to thunderous applause from the large crowd of employees. With his gold medal draped around his neck, PG shook hands with Pacers President/COO Rick Fuson.
The topic allowed Miller to bring up Bird’s fabled performances in the 3-point contest during NBA All-Star Weekends. Bird won the first three contests the NBA ever held from 1986-88. Legend has it that before his third victory, Bird showed up in the locker room and asked the other contestants, “Who’s coming in second?” Miller asked Bird if he really did that, and Bird sheepishly confirmed the story. “Yeah, I did,” Bird admitted. “…I got lucky because I almost got beat in the first round.”
Sprewell was a critical figure in the 1998-99 team that lost to the Spurs in the NBA Finals after a stunning run as the No. 8 seed. That included the Knicks upsetting both the Heat (Allan Houston’s shot) and Reggie Miller’s Pacers in the postseason. “Reggie is a talker. The thing I hated about him is he was a flopper,” Sprewell said. “He’ll just flop and I am like, ‘Stop flopping, man.’ You can’t touch him, he’s always at the free throw line. But you have to respect Reggie, he’s always running around screens, and if you left him open, he’s going to knock down shots. You just have to be careful how you guard him because if you touched him, he’s going to act like he got shot out of a cannon.”
