A proud day for the Indiana Pacers is finally upon us, with Reggie Miller and Mel Daniels set for enshrinement in the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday evening.

Reggie went through all of the ceremonial receptions and media appearances on Thursday on his own, reluctantly speaking on behalf of "Uncle Mel" while desperately wishing his friend was with him to share in the Hall of Fame honors. Daniels will watch the ceremony at the hospital with close friends while his wife CeCe handles the ceremony in Springfield.

Finally, the debate about Reggie as a borderline HoF'er are over. Numbers were the only argument against Miller but rarely was any context put to those numbers in the argument against. As the top option and the guy who everyone knew would shoot the big shot and yet somehow still got open to take and often make the big shot, Reggie earned every bit of this HoF honor. Reggie started his Hall of Fame day by remembering the fans.

The ceremony will be broadcast live on NBA TV with a red carpet show starting at 6:30 p.m. ET and the ceremony at 7:30 p.m. ET.

After the jump, plenty of links, including stories and videos of Reggie's Thursday in Springfield. Also, speaking of numbers in context, True Hoop has a nice little look at Reggie's clutch stat which were without peer during his prime.
