Anyone who knows much about anything knows that Reggie Miller is among the most memorable, iconic players in NBA history and that two-time ABA MVP Mel Daniels was among the most successful players of his generation. Both clearly belong in the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. And after making each wait for a silly amount of time — Reggie, one year; Mel, decades — those running the hall have finally decided to grace them with enshrinement.
Pacers’ great Reggie Miller has been selected for induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame. The class of 2012 announcement was made this morning in New Orleans, the site of tonight’s NCAA men’s championship game.
Miller was one of the best clutch shooters in NBA history during his 18-year career with the Blue and Gold. He’s the all-time leading scorer in Pacers’ history. He was a five-time NBA All-Star and is ranked second on the league’s all-time three-pointers list.
Former Pacers’ ABA star, Mel Daniels was also selected. The induction ceremony will take place in Springfield, Massachusetts in September.
You really didn’t need the twits in Springfield to validate your careers, but it’s nice that they did.
