In my comp class we are writing an Argumentation-Persuasion essay. I figured I would write mine about why Reggie Miller should be in the Top 50 Greatest Players of All-Time.

If one of you highly intelligent people would please provide me with every single point why he SHOULD be on the list....I would be in forever debt to you.


Thanks,

Sactolover

Just to kick this thread off until others come in with superior knowledge:

1 of the most clutch performers in NBA history; with many memorable playoff performances.

One of, if not the, best 3 point shooters in NBA history, including holding the record for most 3 pointers made in a career.

Those would have to be the two biggest reasons for him to be considered.

He shouldn't be. Now I like Reggie Miller as much, well maybe not as much, as the next guy. Seriously though, of the original list created for the NBA's 50th Anniversay who would anybody take off to put Reggie on? Now if you want to put him in the top 50 of the past 25 years thus eliminating the George Mikan era people I could see that.

Still that original list is solid and if the NBA wanted to revise that list you would see the likes of Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, and sadly Kobe Bryant.

Reggie is a great player, greatest in Pacer history, but not in the NBA's top 50.

Well, when the top 50 players list was made I beleived Reggie belonged on it and there are some good reasons.

He is one of if not the greatest three-point shooters in the history of the game.

He is one of the greatest clutch performers in the game

In his prime he stepped it up in the playoffs (were it really counts) like no other, I beleive he had the highest point per game increase in the playoffs from the regular season (the last two seasons might have brung that down, not sure)

He is the face of a franchise that despite not winning a championship has been very good through out the 90's, including almost knocking out the Bulls in '98 and going to the finals in 2000.

He is definetely one of the top 50 playoff performers ever and aren't the playoffs were it matters?

MJ and Reggie are #1 and #2 for most game-winning shots (forgot which order though)

Thanks you all.


I know some of you don't think he should be. That's why I think this topic would make a good subject to write about. It's alomst a 50-50 choice in the forum.

If anyone else feels like adding anything...don't be afraid.

I'd like a lot of the little details as well. Sometimes the little things are important.

Thanks again.

Do your own damn homework! ;)

Seriously though, I think he is right on the cusp. As such, I agree this is a great topic. I will try to give it some thought and put in my two cents in the next day or so.
