    It's weird, because the reason I fell in love with this team in the first place is because of Reggie Miller.

    Now I find myself having to cheer for this team over my childhood hero. And to be honest, I don't have that "personal attachment" to this team as currently constructed. But I've always had that feeling with Reggie (because of everything MORE than just the basketball).

    Yep, if he plays for another team and turns into a ring whore, I'm done with him. Definitely not hanging a framed Reggie jersey or a framed print of him holding up the "INDIANA" on his jersey in my newly christened computer room. Sad too, it's the only room in the house where I control the decor....

    Thanks Reggie, if you do it, you will have done the one thing that you could do to alienate me from you. A LOT of respect will be lost.

    I dunno guys. There is a rumor going around how Reggie Miller was offered a position with the Cavilers after the All Star break this previous season. If he does come back to the Celtics, I'll be sure to never watch a NBA game again.

    i'm in denial. i don't want to believe any of this stuff but it's unavoidable. if reggie comes back to the nba in anything other than blue and gold it's just not right. this is practically hypocritcal on his part. downing all the "ring chasers" then coming back for that exact reason. he should be ashamed of himself. reggie miller, like many others, is the lone reason i came to love the indiana pacers. if he wears another teams uniform, i don't think i can root for him. i'ma die hard pacers fan and that will never change. part of me wants him to win a ring but the other half doesn't. i'm really overreacting to this, but i can't help it.

    so reggie, please don't come back.

    It's tough being an Indiana Pacer fan these days. We've had to put up with some bad characters, a tarnished reputation, a lot of losing, incompetent management, etc.

    But the one thing we've always had is Reggie Miller...who represented everything we want from our Indiana Pacers.

    And now, it's as if we don't have him anymore. In fact, we won't as soon as he puts that ****in' green jersey on.

    Yep, he was our one constant. The one thing we could count on as Pacer fans to represent what our franchise was actually about.

    Or cover his jersey with a black curtain until he re-retires.

    I bet a lot of Red Sox fans were just thrilled when Babe Ruth finally got his chance to show off his hitting ability with NY. Of course he already had his Boston ring and was traded rather than just signing with them.


    This whole "it's silly to get upset" thing: why? What's the difference between this and the reason you liked him or rooted for him? It's ALL "just sports", right? Would you have rooted for Reggie if he was a Knick all those years doing those things to the Pacers instead? F NO!

    So the reason he has any importance is just as silly, just as uniform based or loyalty based, as the reason to be upset now. It's only a game whether it's 8.9 or 25 or tying up NJ with a miracle.


    Being married is special, it's a strong bond that goes beyond just friendship. That's why cheating is so bad in comparison to some single person just hooking up. Reggie has enjoyed the immense benefit of that bond and his loyalty, but the other side of it is that a level of committment is expected that other, NON-ICONS aren't required to show.

    It's hard not to just go for the cheap win, but that's why the few that do are so special. Reggie throws all those years of loyalty and integrity out the window for a cheap fling? It's just stupid to me.

    Imagine Walter Payton going to the 49ers in 84 to get his ring instead of hanging in there with the Bears. Imagine Don Mattingly coming back to join the Braves in 96 for a WS shot.

    This can't be real......

    I think I'm going to be sick.

    I don't want to sound selfish at all, either. This hurts a lot because Reggie made it clear he prided himself in staying with Indiana his entire career, and also called out ring chasers in the past. (Malone and Payton)

    The Celtics are essentially ripping my heart out, throwing it in a blender then pouring it in the ocean as soon as Reggie signs that contract.

    But hey, that's what being a Pacers fan the last 3-4 years has been about.

    I'm sure he's thinking "If Michael Jordan can play for another team AFTER winning championships and not tarnish his legacy, I can do it since I haven't won one. "

    Well, what would you have him do - re-sign with the Pacers?

    They're probably the reason he didn't come back the next year! Remember him saying what he did about the "chemistry"?

    This team has been mis-managed for the last 3-4 years, so he definitely doesn't want any part of the P's, and he's got that one last itch that needs scratching.

    I will gladly watch Reggie on whatever team he joins, be it Celtics or Phoenix, because I believe the Suns are pursuing him as well.

    I'm finding it hard for me to get excited about the NBA this year due to the Pacers' woes, and the non-movement by the FO, so if Reg comes back, I'll have a reason to watch.

    My $.02...

    I guess I'm one of the only guys that would love to see Reggie play again... even if for another team. Against any other team I'll be rooting for him to torch whoever is guarding him.

    When he plays against the Pacers though, I hope he lays an egg and Kareem Rush burns him up one side and down the other.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Wow, I don't know what to say.
    Like the most of you, I don't know what to say to this other than "don't do it Reg!"
    He deserves a ring, but all of his legacy would be gone with the P's.
    Wouldn't his retired banner be removed from Conseco too?

    wish it would happen, & others make it happen.

    No way. I don't believe in pretend the past didn't happen. Neither will the people who could make that call.

    Besides, it's not like they un-retired #23 in Chicago after 2002. George McGinnis (and I want to say Mel and Roger as well?) all played with other teams after playing in Indiana. Either a player does enough while wearing your uniform to warrant the retirement or he doesn't IMO.

    Yeah Mel came back to play with New Jersey. He played like 11 or 12 games and then quit on it. Thats why he doesn't want Reggie to come back.

    Why am I angry? I just keep thinking about Ray Borque. Classy player that played on one team his entire career who got a shot at a championship on a stacked team late in his career. Sound familar? The indelible image of his HOF career is him lifting the cup in a Avalanche sweater, not all of the years he played in Boston. Ray was not by any stretch of the imagination one of the best players on that Avs team, but he became the story of the SC finals that year. The same would happen to Reggie. He would become the story on ESPN all season. And he will become as linked to the Celts as to the Pacers in the eyes of basketball fans around the country. Michael had 6 rings in Chicago; he will always be a Bull. Reggie will become a Celtic forever if they win, and for that I am angry. Might as well pack up the franchise and move it to KC.

    And those guys were still active when they jumped ship. They never had that retirement ceremony and jersey retirement ceremony. This is the second time that I have felt betrayed as a Pacer fan this summer and I am sick of it.
