Hall of Famer Reggie Miller (not gonna get old any time soon) was with the Indiana Pacers for 18 years leading the team to many great moments and big wins on the court. Now that he's retired and headed to the Hall, Miller wouldn't mind a chance to lead the Pacers from the front office.
AP scribe Cliff Brunt caught up with Reggie following the Hall of Fame announcement and along with running through all of the influences on his life and career from his time in Indiana, and professing his support for Peyton Manning, Reggie also touched on his future involvement in the franchise.
That loyalty could eventually bring Miller back to Indianapolis. Team president Larry Bird is unsure he will return next year and Miller wouldn't mind running the franchise, whether it be next year or down the road.
"Absolutely, it's a great possibility," said Miller, now a TNT analyst. "Even though I wasn't born in Indiana, I call it my home state. It's something that's definitely a possibility."
Well, Reggie sure didn't dodge or sugar-coat his answer, did he? Of course, anything is possible but it also doesn't hurt to start campaigning while the good will is flowing just in case Larry Bird decides to step down sooner rather than later.
