Pacers' Miller Reportedly Will Retire

February 11, 2005|From Associated Press

Indiana Pacer guard Reggie Miller will retire after this season, his sister, Cheryl, reported Thursday night on TNT.

"Over the last couple of weeks there has been a lot of speculation on whether or not this will be Reggie Miller's last season," Cheryl Miller said. "Yesterday I spoke to Reggie, and after 18 seasons with the Indiana Pacers, this will definitely be his last season."

Miller, 39, has been one of the league's best outside shooters during a career that has included five All-Star appearances, 131 playoff games and a trip to the NBA Finals.

Two weeks ago, Miller angrily shot down another TNT reporter's story that he was retiring.

Miller holds NBA records for most three-pointers made (2,371) and attempted (5,987) and is the all-time leading scorer in Pacer history.

Miller threw his headband and wristbands and yelled at the officials after they did not call goaltending on a last-second shot that was blocked by Phoenix's Amare Stoudemire in the Suns' 125-123 victory.

Also, King guard Mike Bibby was fined $15,000 for yelling at officials, Cuttino Mobley was fined $15,000 for criticizing the officials, and forward Chris Webber was fined $10,000 for kicking the ball into the stands.
