It's one thing to be hailed as one of the NBA's all-time great perimeter shooters—Reggie Miller was most certainly that.
It's quite another, though, to suggest he's one of the very best all-around shooting guards, and Mark Jackson, current Golden State Warriors head coach and Miller's former teammate, is doing exactly that, according to the Indianapolis Star's Mike Wells.
“When you take Michael Jordan and you take Kobe Bryant out of the discussion, he’s as good as any two-guard that has ever played the game,” Jackson said.
Those years in the broadcast booth certainly primed Jackson for a career in hyperbole.
But is there something to his sentiment? After all, hitting big shots and spreading the floor are important parts of the game. So what if he wasn't exactly a triple-double threat.
On the other hand, Miller has some stiff competition that Jackson leaves unmentioned. Let's take a look at where Reggie really stacks up among the best shooting guards in league history.
