Reggie Miller takes shot at New Orleans Pelicans over Tyreke Evans offer

tyreke-evansFollowing his Rookie of the Year campaign during the 2009-2010 NBA season, former Memphis star Tyreke Evans has largely been a disappointment for the Sacramento Kings. Evans’ assists and points per game numbers have decreased steadily over the past three seasons, and Sacramento has not won more than 28 games in a season since drafting him with the fourth overall pick in 2009.

Despite his dipping production, the New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly offered Evans a four-year contract worth somewhere between $40 and $48 million. While Evans is only 23 and has plenty of basketball ahead of him, that number seems awfully steep. What does the legendary Reggie Miller think about it?

I think Evans’ legs are probably a little fresher than the 47-year-old Miller’s at this point, but you get the idea. Evans is a restricted free agent, meaning the Kings will have a chance to match any offer he receives. If New Orleans did in fact offer that type of money, Sacramento will have a difficult decision to make with a player the team has not had many great things to say about over the past few seasons.

Reggie Miller videbombed by Spike Lee on anniversary of huge finish

Reggie Miller Spike LeeTuesday marked the 18th anniversary of Reggie Miller’s improbable finish at Madison Square Guarden. Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds to give the Indiana Pacers a stunning 107-105 win over the New York Knicks in Game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference semifinals. Miller’s performance is widely regarded as one of the most improbable, clutch achievements of all time. It’s also memorable because Miller exchanged some epic trash talk with filmmaker Spike Lee during the game, as had become tradition for the two.

Well Reggie returned to MSG on Tuesday as a commentator for Game 2 of the Knicks-Indiana Pacers playoff series. Before the game, Miller announced his presence with authority by sending out this tweet:

No choke signs were exchanged, but Spike did get Miller back with a solid videobomb.

As the Knicks ran the Pacers out of the Garden in the fourth quarter, the fans got in on the act with a “Reggie sucks” chant:

Reggie Miller looks like a little kid in Shaq’s suit jacket (Picture)


Reggie Miller and Shaquille O’Neal were both NBA superstars in their day, but Miller gave us a reminder on Thursday that superstars can come in all different shapes and sizes.

What do you get when you put a three-point specialist in the suit coat of one of the most dominant post players of all time? You get a Reggie Miller that looks like he’s a 6-year-old playing dress-up with his old man’s clothes.

“Getting ready to shoot more Open Court shows, had to put on Shaq’s suit jacket, it makes me look like I’m 8!!!!” Miller tweeted along with the hilarious photo.

Reggie Miller may be 6-foot-7, but Shaq can make any grown man not named Yao Ming look small.

Reggie Miller still not sold on Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin still has a lot of work to do if he wants to prove he is one of the best point guards in the NBA. While his run has been sensational, Lin has only played at a high level for a nine-game stretch. There’s no doubt he’s an NBA talent, but can he continue to score more than 20 a game and rack up double-doubles? Reggie Miller still needs to see more.

“As big as they’re building him up, they’ll tear him back down,” Miller said according to the L.A. Times. “It’s one thing to do this against New Jersey, Toronto, Washington, Utah, the Hornets, and every point guard kills the Lakers, but after these bottom dwellers, I want to see him against (Derrick) Rose, (Rajon) Rondo, Paul, Tony Parker. I want to see more body of work, versus upper-echelon players.”

Miller also voiced an opinion that is shared by many others around the league: that New York will have to wait and see how Carmelo Anthony and Lin can coexist on the floor. Lin has faced some good guards in Deron Williams, John Wall, and Ricky Rubio, but Miller has a point about waiting until he goes up against the league’s best.

The overlooked issue with Lin has been turnovers. He has turned the ball over at least six times in each of the Knicks’ last six games. His inability to limit turnovers hasn’t cost the team yet, but it could against the league’s premier guards and better defenders. As much of an inspirational story as Lin has become, he still has plenty to prove.

Reggie and Cheryl Miller Show Off Their Dance Moves

Thursday night on TNT was a pretty special night for several reasons. First up, the Magic came back from down 16 to beat the Celtics with Dwight Howard serving as an asset in the final quarter. After that game, the Suns came back to beat the Mavericks in Phoenix. Despite being down most of the game, the bench stepped up in the fourth to catapult the Suns into the lead, scoring 19 of their 28 points that quarter while disgruntled star Amare Stoudemire rode the pine. The result was that the Suns snapped their infamous TNT losing streak which had reached 18 games. The post game show was interesting as always but it was the dance moves of the Miller siblings that stole the show. Here’s the video:

The second portion of the video was a shortened clip from Miller dancing in the NBA TV studio earlier in the week. I definitely recognized the robot in there but can’t quite identify what the other moves were. Ditto for Reggie although his shoulder shake was pretty funny. What’s the lesson to be learned: always assume the cameras are rolling because anything you do could wind up on YouTube and then on some dumbasses’ blog.
