Orlando, Florida: Former Indiana Pacers great Reggie Miller was named on Friday as a first-time finalist for the Basketball Hall of Fame, one of a dozen finalists for the class of 2012.
"When you're in the backyard and you're trying to play the 3-2-1 game, and you're trying to be the Iceman (George Gervin) and do the figure roll. ... Now to be on the same stage with these guys. It's just a great honour," Miller said.
Miller, a five-time All-Star, wasn't nominated last year in his first year of eligibility.
