I remember it well. That was back when the NBA Draft was a mid-
week, daytime affair. I recall spending the lunch hour in a local,
northside, Indy establishment (the Snooty Fox for any other
Indy folks) watching it as the Pacers pick drew near. We were
all a bit befuddled at the Miller selection. But needless to say,
it worked out ok for Walsh and crew.
As for Alford, his hoops career peaked in the NCAA Championship
game in late-March of that year when they beat Syracuse for
the title. It was all downhill from there. Calling his NBA career
non-descript would be a compliment.
You're of course correct. Only the idiots wanted Alford in that spot.
The really interesting and ironic thing about that draft was that the
Pacers actually ended up with the #9 (McKey), #11 (RM) and #18
(Jackson) picks that year in their starting lineup a few years later.
