Joys of Youth: The Reggie Miller Edition

by Zettler Clay

This summer, we at the NBA Digital batcave have been churning out historic material that has transpired over the years in the game we love. With other matters pending, Bird’s steals, Magic’s triple-doubles, Moses Malone’s rebounding fests and MJ’s overall dominance held us through.

Recently, a group of Chinese children — who are enamored with Pacers basketball — reenacted some of the greatest moments in franchise history, which undoubtedly featured some guy named Miller.

Their unbridled enthusiasm for hardwood theater didn’t make my day. It arguably made my week.

For nostalgia sake, let’s see how it matched to the real thing.

Last night in … turning back the clock

by Micah Hart

With all of the talk about injuries this season to Yao Ming and Greg Oden, with people wondering if they’ll ever be able to play again, it’s easy to despair. But look no further than last night’s performance by Grant Hill in the Suns’ OT win in Oklahoma City for proof that life is long, and if you work hard enough, there may still be time to salvage that career yet.

Hill dropped 30 and 11 on OKC, the first time he’s gone for a 30-10 game since 2000, when he was still with the Pistons (sorry Orlando!). According to stats dude Kevin Cottrell, at 38 Hill became the oldest player to score 30+ since Reggie Miller scored 34 at the age of 39 on April 10, 2005, and became the oldest player to go 30+10 since MJ did it for the Wizards (35 and 11) on February 27, 2003, at age 40.

Not bad Grant, you still got it. 40’s the new 30 anyway, right?
