  • Some men are legendary without the ring. 🤷🏿‍♂️

  • It would’ve been our only championship too....

  • Same as Karl Malone it was said that Gary Payton and Shaq tryed to get him to sign with heat after Lakers to give it another try at a chip 2 years Later heat won in 05-06.

  • winning like that just for the sake of saying that you got one sitting on the bench and playing 10 min and playing far worse than his standard would be a shame to his career.

  • Joining a super team at that age would only diminish his reputation and legacy. It will only be a chip against him in the long run. He doesn't need to prove anything. We all know if it wasn't for MJ and the Bulls, Reggie has a legit chance to be a champion.

  • The man was retired for two years and HE WAS 42 YEARS OLD!!! HE GAVE ALL HE HAD FOR 18 YEARS!!! Why would he come back?????

  • It wouldn’t have been nearly as meaningful as winning it as a Pacer. It would’ve been nice, but it wouldn’t really change his place in history. I’m sure Clyde wouldn’t rather led the blazers to a championship than winning one in Houston. And KD’s two rings in GS will go down as the 2 most meaningless rings ever made.

  • When your "body" tells you it's not ready, guess what? That was the right decision. Think about it, if you didn't get one while you were in playing condition? Stay retired, and healthy. Don't risk that for jewelry that's not guaranteed. IMO

  • Its a good decision for Reggie Miller, the mind says you can but the body says can't.. No money in the world would help him that...But if he was offered as one of the coaching staff, it would be a different story...

  • I admire Regie of his decision, he does not want to cheat the game...! Besides, if he signed up they would not get James Posey which is their wing defender... Not saying Boston will not win, but it can go sad ways considering they battle Kobe!

  • For chasing a ring he could have left the Pacers during his career. Reggie was loyal to the Pacers, much respect for that! With or without ring, he is one of the Greatest!

    John StarksJohn StarksYear ago
  • Every athlete always wanted a championship ring but the real athlete thinks about he's importance in the team. Had Reggie joined Celtics a different story could have happened. Who will take the crusial 3pt shot? Reggie knew he's not 100% ready, he would just missed the winning shot if he would be doing it. Reggie's decision was just right.

    ANT0NI02nd SALVAANT0NI02nd SALVAYear ago
  • I'm glad he didn't go that route because we as fans are left with memories of him single handed (to a point) destroying the knicks. That's a much better memory than him at 42 probably can't get up and down the court playing with a super team just for a ring.

  • He was right, he didn’t want to ride the coat tails of kg, pp, and ra. He has pride, this is when Winning a championship meant something. Not like kd who joined a 73 win team and won on a title. If u couldn’t lead a team, then u didn’t deserve it

    anthony belvedereanthony belvedereYear ago
  • Winning a ring is not important to reggie,he engraved his name to the pacers team and he became their have a ring it was a team effort and its not carried only by one player... Im happy to see reggie w/out a ring bec. he fight the good fight and loyal to one team than to have a ring with the team that he was not needed at all danny ainge said...

    L . O . RL . O . RYear ago
    • I won't have any respect for him if he did that. It will only be a chip on his shoulder. He doesn't deserve to be roasted by the media and be branded alongside KD as a ring chaser. His reputation as a great player that gave the Bulls a good fight is his legacy and he's already a champion to real fans on that matter. Just like players that stat-pads on a blow-out game, it's just empty accolade that no one really cares about at that point.

  • Reggie had the misfortune (like many others in the East) of running into " know who😉". By the time he got to the finals he had the other misfortune of running into "SHAQ & THE BLACK MAUMBA". But let me say I respect Reggie Miller for NOT RING CHASING like so many other vets who did. Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Gary Peyton, etc.....

      brian licanelbrian licanelYear ago
  • Yes for me he can still play, but the problem is he declined na the, that is not a good decision, the offer is once in a lifetime if i reggie i will accept the veteran role atleast one or two season that the biggest mistake and regret of his basketball career, im a michael jordan fan, but i was shock of this story, but i know he still think of this the rest of his life.

  • He was 42 at that time, and he's a bonified Hall of Famer with or without rings

    Carlos PerezCarlos PerezYear ago
  • We all wanted Reggie to get a ring and his effort to get one was as big or bigger than anyone else who did get a ring. But trying to come back two years after retiring and at age 42 would have been a big turd in an other wise great legacy. If he had been 38 then maybe but at 42 it just would have been wrong. Too many of the great ones play too long. And Reggie was passed his prime when he left. But he still got out with his dignity. A ring that others won for him wasn't a reason to cheapen it.

      Jazz CriticJazz CriticYear ago
    • Well to be fair he had every intention on joining the Celtics but by the time they actually made him an offer, he felt that it wasn't enough time to get his body back into shape for the 82 game season. I think he said something like if they had given him another month, he probably would have been able to do it but he didn't want to risk it. Love Reggie though. Deserved a ring but glad he didn't get it with another team edit: I guess I should have waited to watch the video before I responded because it covered pretty much everything I just said. Haha my bad
