Reggie Miller Returns to Indiana

+Read full article

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

For 17 years, Reggie Miller was the hero of the Hoosier state. Miller put the Indiana Pacers on his back for nearly two decades, and helped bring basketball back to prominence for the first time in a long time in Indiana. On Thursday night, Miller will make his return to Bankers Life Fieldhouse, this time as a broadcast announcer. Miller will be calling Thursday night’s nationally televised game between the Indiana Pacers and their longtime rival, the New York Knicks.

Miller retired in 2005, but his legend looms large at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to this day. His jersey was retired and hangs high in the rafters of the house that he helped build. Miller’s accolades resonate far beyond Indiana, and have helped put him firmly entrenched as one of the most dynamic and polarizing players in the history of basketball. Miller’s career with the Pacers included an Olympic gold medal, five all-star bids, and 15 playoff appearances. Last year, Miller was deservedly enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Miller’s return to Indiana will no doubt be respected and observed by the Pacers. The fact that Miller returns as a broadcaster, to call a game between the Pacers and the Knicks, is even more interesting. Miller’s history with New York helped to spark one the greatest rivalries in basketball. This game also marks the first nationally televised game in Indiana since last years’ playoffs. The energy will be amped up, the crowd will be electric, and the Pacers will have to be ready to play hard.
