I don't know if this has ever been posted on here & I had never seen this before I came across it tonight.

This is obviously after Reggie retired so I think it was a pretty good compliment from one of the all time great defenders.

I show my brother this nearly every day since he is a huge Kobe fan and hated Reggie

I remember another interview while Reggie was still playing, where they were asking Kobe a series of questions and his answer to "Toughest Opponent" was Reggie Miller. Something about chasing Reggie for 48 minutes and feeling like you had been in a heavyweight boxing match after because of the constant movement and all the screens he ran you into. It's funny because not long after that I was watching the Pacers at the Lakers and late in the game Kobe and Reggie were standing near one another and I remember thinking the respect between them was pretty cool and then seconds later...well you know the rest...

MJ went after Reggie too, and in later years talked about how hard he was to guard.

I'd like to hear Joe Dumars opinion, because Reggie always said he was the toughest defender he faced.

REGGIE, REGGIE, REGGIE, REGGIE.


The Goosebumps still come thinking about these chants for him.

Let's not forget the big men setting the picks. I'm sure Reggie would have been a lot easier to defend had Andrea Bargnani been setting the picks...

with Reggie as our franchise player, why would we have ANY of the FIBA Raptors on the roster?

Whenever I see a picture of Dale Davis I can't help but think how much smaller he looks than what I remember from when I was a kid.
