“Derek can be a great coach because he’s always been a ‘glue guy,’ ”' Reggie Miller told me the other day. “He’s had that influence in every locker room he’s ever been in. He’s seen everything there is to see in basketball and he’s been a champion. And he’s been under Phil Jackson’s tutelage.” New York Daily News

Reggie Miller believes his former Pacers teammate Mark Jackson should at least get an audience with Knicks president Phil Jackson. “He certainly should get an interview going off his resume,’’ Miller said on a conference call to promote coverage of the Western Conference Finals on TNT, where he works as an analyst. “He certainly should get an interview. I’m not saying he should get the job if Phil wants someone whom he’s familiar with and understands triangle. Certainly Mark Jackson should get an interview. He’s born and bred in New York, knows the media landscape, was Rookie of the Year. He knows the city, the climate. That should warrant at least an interview.’’ New York Post

Who was the toughest player for you to guard during your career? DA: There was a couple. When I played it was tough. I was a tough guard but think about it, you had these shooting guards: Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Mitch Richmond, Latrell Sprewell, Allan Houston, Steve Smith, JR Rider... Just naming those guys, you knew you had a tough night every night and if you watched on TV you said 'Man, this is a great game!' Now you can't name me five apart from Kobe [Bryant], [James] Harden and maybe Joe Johnson... It was fun back then. Mario Elie, Allen Iverson was a two-guard back then... There was a bunch of talent. Now? There's nothing. HoopsHype

Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson and Hall of Fame shooting guard Reggie Miller are two superbly confident players with a basketball in their hands. It's no different when they pick up a ping-pong paddle. Robinson and Miller recently squared off in the Nuggets players’ lounge to see who reigned supreme in table tennis. Their match was filmed for a feature on NBA TV’s “Inside Stuff.” NBA.com

“I love it! It’s about time," Miller said. "You cannot tell me that any Clippers coaches before have not thought about that and gone to management and actually said something. It took Doc Rivers to come in here. You play in the same building, how could you not cover them up? I think it’s a brilliant move. You are telling your team: ‘We’re taking over L.A., and we respect the banners … but this is our time.” Los Angeles Times

Roger Brown became a Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer on Sunday, with another Hall of Famer telling people what the former Indiana Pacers superstar in the old ABA meant to the franchise. "People say that I put the Indiana Pacers on the map," Reggie Miller said. "No, it all started with Roger Brown." USA Today Sports

Brown, who died in 1997, was presented by Miller and Hall of Famer Mel Daniels, a teammate of Brown's. Brown's daughter, Gayle Brown Mayes, called it "a really special day" but "bittersweet" because of her father's absence. During the induction, Mayes was on the stage with Brown's son, Roger Jr., plus Miller and Daniels. Brown Jr. spoke on behalf of the family in a video played at the induction. He thanked Miller and Daniels, saying, "There is nothing more bestowing than having two Pacers legends usher in a fellow Pacer legend through the doors of the Hall of Fame." USA Today Sports

Arlena can still recall the elation in his voice the day he called to tell her the Indiana Pacers, a new team in a new league, had made him the franchise's first player. "From there," she says, "it was just history." He averaged 17.6 points a game over an eight-year career and led the Pacers to three titles, winning playoff MVP honors in 1970. His name was later cleared in the gambling scandal, but he refused entry into the NBA near the end of his career. He retired in 1975 among the best in ABA history. "The Pacers were the class of the league, and Roger was the class of the class," Julius Erving said in Green's documentary. "He would have been known as one of the greatest players of all-time, but he never got that chance," longtime NBA executive Donnie Walsh added. "The greatest Pacer ever," Reggie Miller said.

Hall of Famer Reggie Miller said this week that he has thought about working in the Pacers’ front office someday. President Donnie Walsh said he and the former Pacers great have never had a serious discussion about Miller joining the team. What would Walsh say if Miller asked his advice? “You’re not going to make as much money as you did as a player,” Walsh said laughing. “But you’ll make a good living and you have to really think everything out. This isn’t like where you have your first thought and then you go do it. You have to look at all the ramifications of everything you do ’cause it impacts the team, not just one person.” Indianapolis Star

You have the life of luxury. You work one day a week during the regular season. But how much do you think about running a team in the front office? Reggie Miller: All the time. It would have to be the right situation (and), for me, the only situation I know is Indiana. Those competitive juices always flow. During the regular season, not so much because it’s only one day a week. It really picks up come the end of March and April when the playoffs are about to start and we have a lot of games. That’s when my blood starts to boil and I start to sweat a little bit more. I’m in the action because every possession means something. That’s when I think I could possibly do that. Again, it’ll have to be the right situation. We’ll see. I’m not going to broadcast forever. I’ll probably want to do something else in basketball, which will probably be running a team or at least helping run a team. Indianapolis Star
