Reggie Miller wasn't always the biggest name in his own family. On Friday night, he was the top star in the biggest basketball Hall of Fame class in half a century.
The former UCLA and Indiana Pacers star was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., joining sister Cheryl as the first brother-sister pair in the Springfield shrine.
It was a big night for UCLA, which also had Don Barksdale and Jamaal Wilkes in the 12-person class of 2012, and for the Indiana Pacers. Two-time ABA MVP Mel Daniels also was inducted.
Miller retired as the most prolific three-point shooter in NBA history, making 2,560 in his career for a record that stood until Ray Allen surpassed it in 2011.
Also honored were Don Nelson, the winningest coach in NBA history; three-time NCAA Player of the Year Ralph Sampson; Nike co-founder Phil Knight; the All-American Redheads, known as the female Harlem Globetrotters; seven-time NBA All-Star Chet Walker; two-time Olympic gold medalist Katrina McClain; ex- Soviet women's coach Lidia Alexeeva; and longtime NCAA referee Hank Nichols.
The Los Angeles Lakers added assistant coaches Eddie Jordan, Bernie Bickerstaff and Steve Clifford to Mike Brown's coaching staff. Jordan served as the Kings' head coach in 1997-98.
