'90s Highlights

Reggie wasn't the fastest and wasn't the quickest, but what does that matter if you can't miss? Miller was one of the most clutch performers in sports history. The god relished in the big moments. He was the all-time leader in three pointers until Shuttlesworth passed him up in 2011 and is top ten all-time in free throw percentage. All Reggie needed was a little day light and he was making the shot. Larry Brown had him constantly running through screens to get free so he can take his funky jump shot, exactly how Brown used Rip Hamilton. Reggie had legendary clutch moments that included scoring 8 points in 8.9 seconds to beat the Knicks in Game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals, which put his epic beef with Spike Lee into the national spotlight. He also won a gold medal in 1996. Everyone knew it was "Miller Time" when the game was on the line.
