    Mr Boyle,

    You're going to have a difficult time convincing anyone within these walls that there should even be a debate.

    Does the Hall include too many players? Perhaps. But the standard has been set, and narrowing the standard would be a mistake.

    If the hall was called the "Hall of Statistics" then Reggie would be only one of many "very good" shooting guards just from his era. There's little to distinguish him from the pack.

    Thankfully, it is not the "Hall of Statistics", it is the Hall of FAME.

    I had one of those "Oh crap I'm surrounded by Lakers fans" conversations at Rick's Tavern in Santa Monica. This crowd was a bit older and scholarly and as the conversation went on, they could tell that I knew a bit about basketball. Inevitably, one of the guys asked me who "my team" was.

    "Pacers," I said.

    The response of one of the guys was remarkable. "Reggie Miller. One of the all-time greats. You were lucky to have so many great memories with that guy. I'm not even a fan, and his moments were some of my favorites all time." And that was that. Reggie miller, brought to you by an average guy wearing purple and gold.

    Many memories fade, but reggie's memories for some reason stick not just with Indiana fans but with fans of the league as a whole.

    Statistically, Reggie was merely "very good". However, as far as true fame goes, his legend is what matters here. Reggie is a Hall of Famer.

    Pretty sure that was before last years rewards, so it's ineligible.

    I think there should be a special award this year for best nickname. You know, like how some people call Naptime Seth by his chosen name.

    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.

    Too late. Awards are already going and nominations were last week. I'm surprised how many didn't follow up and officially nominate some of these. This thread was to help you remember, and most of you still didn't!

    WAIT - I thought posting in here WAS nominating them. I assumed every post in here was already on the list. therefore not needed to be "doubled up" on the ballot.

    Some of the posts in here even start out "I nominate ..."

    I think you might want to reconsider your list. I doubt if I'm the only one that was misled by these circumstances.

    *edit*

    The intent was never to mislead or suggest that this was the place to nominate. The intent was to provide a space for people to note then as the year went along so they wouldn't for get TO nominate them when the time came. Sorry for any/all confusion.

    OK, wrong word. Does confused work? I thought the purpose of this thread all year was to nominate posts as they came up.

    My mistake.
