The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame has announced its 2012 inductees, and former Indiana Pacers superstar Reggie Miller is the crown jewel of the class.

According to a press release on the Hall of Fame’s official website, Miller will be honored alongside 11 other notable men and women who have achieved greatness in the sport of basketball.

Does Reggie Miller Deserve to Be in the HOF?

Among those to be inducted during a three-day celebration from Sept. 6 to 8 of this year are Don Nelson, the winningest coach in NBA history; Ralph Sampson, a three-time National College Player of the Year; Katrina McClain, a two-time Olympic gold medalist; former official Hank Nichols; and former NBA star Jamaal Wilkes.

Miller is arguably the most deserving out of this group, having played all 18 years of his career for the Pacers and finishing as the franchise’s all-time leader in points and steals.

He has an Olympic gold medal, five All-Star nods, the second-most three-pointers made in league history and perhaps the most memorable nine seconds in NBA history; the superstar shooting guard eviscerated the New York Knicks for eight points in that time frame and helped the Pacers cap an incredible postseason comeback.

That alone should earn him a spot in the Hall of Fame, and it will be great to see such a quality NBA talent be rightfully inducted later this year.
