In Reggie Miller: The Remarkable Story of One of 90s Basketball's Sharpest Shooters, you'll read about the inspirational story of basketball's premier shooting guard, Reggie Miller. Reggie Miller broke the record books during his incredible eighteen-year NBA career. In an age filled with greats like Michael Jordan, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon and John Stockton, Reggie played in one of the most exciting eras of modern basketball. While the Indiana Pacers failed to win a ring during Reggie’s tenure, they played some of the most spectacular playoff series in NBA history and made it to the NBA Finals in 1999-2000 before ultimately falling to the Los Angeles Lakers.

A hall of famer, Reggie Miller had one of the smoothest strokes that basketball has ever seen. While newer players like Steph Curry may statistically be the best shooters to play the game, Reggie Miller still easily remains a top shooting guard in NBA history.

Here is a preview of what is inside this book:
  • Early Life and Childhood
  • College Years at UCLA
  • Reggie Miller’s NBA Career
  • Miller’s Personal Life
  • Reggie’s Impact on Basketball and Beyond
  • Reggie Miller’s Legacy
An excerpt from the book:

The NBA has two kinds of star players. There are those who are always in the ear of their opponents, teammates, referees, fans, and anybody near the basketball court, telling everyone how good they are. Those types of players have a knack of getting opponents out of their rhythm and pumping their team up. Other players would rather lead by example and let their game do the talking for them, believing that sinking a buzzer-beating three-point shot says more than telling someone that you have got skills. They’d rather methodically kill you on the court by destroying your defense and by making you look silly while trying to guard them. Then there is Reggie Miller.

Perhaps no other player in NBA history has combined the two types of players more so than Miller. One cannot think of Miller without harkening back to some of his more famous on-court escapades, such as his back-and-forth banter with movie director Spike Lee in Madison Square Garden, overtly giving the choke sign by visibly wrapping his hands around his neck for everyone to see, bowing to all sides of the arena in a mocking manner and even head-butting a player (see Starks, John, 1993 NBA Playoffs). Miller relished road games and playing the role of the villain so much that his 1999 autobiography was titled I Love Being the Enemy. That’s simply the type of player Miller was. Some players try to mentally block out road crowds. Reggie loved hearing the boos, and he fed off that negativity.

But focusing on Miller’s flamboyance would be a disservice to his hard work, dedication to his craft, and high basketball intelligence. It would also ignore the clutch play that became a signature of Miller’s game; the blood running through his veins was perhaps colder than any basketball player not named Michael Jordan. If there was a player who had ice-cold poisonous blood running through his veins, it was Reggie Miller.
