Good day to be an Indiana Pacers legend.

Reggie Miller was among the 12 finalists chosen for election to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday. Miller was in this spot last year but came up short, but his second go-round should be much better as he headlines the list of finalists this year and is expected to get the call to the Hall where he would join Mel Daniels for the induction ceremony.

From the Hall of Fame announcement:

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced today, at NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando, an elite list of players, coaches, an official and one team as the 12 finalists from the North American and Women's committees to be considered for election in 2012. The recognition of being honored as a Hall of Fame finalist is a career highlight in the sport of basketball. This year's list includes four first-time finalists: five-time NBA All-Star Reggie Miller, five-time NCAA Final Four coach Rick Pitino, two-time NBA Coach of the Year Bill Fitch and two-time Olympic gold medalist Katrina McClain. Previous finalists included again this year for consideration are Maurice Cheeks, Bernard King, Dick Motta, Don Nelson, Hank Nichols, Ralph Sampson, Jamaal Wilkes and the All American Red Heads. The Class of 2012 will be unveiled at the NCAA Final Four in April.
