The C's aren't done yet, but if they can pull this off, I'll REALLY be impressed.

ESPN - Miller says he's pondering comeback with Celtics


    Reggie Miller says he is contemplating a return to the NBA, this time with the Boston Celtics.

    Miller, who turns 42 on Aug. 24, played his entire 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers before retiring in 2005. Since his playing days ended he has worked as a television analyst for TNT.

    Miller was all set to continue that job when Celtics general manager Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers asked him to think about joining their revamped team in a reserve role, playing about 15 minutes per game.


I've always liked Miller in his current role on TNT and even more as a regular guest on the Dan Patrick Show. But I'd be shocked if he comes back with a Celtics uniform after spending his whole career with the Pacers. I mean, would Michael Jordan come out of retirement to join the Wizards? Oh wait...

Man, this is a brutal time to be a Pacers fan.

Don't remind me. Being a Pacers fan recently has consisted of many nights of banging my head against the wall.

42, and two years removed from his playing days? It's not like Rodman trying to come back and bang around under the boards - from what I remember of Reggie's game, a big part of it was him running all over the court, through two or three picks to get an open look at the 3-point line. All of which he'd need his legs for to be effective. I don't think he has much of a chance to meaningfully contribute, my guess would be training camp, a couple of exhibition games, then maybe he can commiserate with Jim Palmer about comebacks.

I suppose he could always try HGH?

If they are going for a former Pacer, I'd rather go for Mark Jackson to control the point off the bench for 12-15 minutes a night.

Reggie will team nicely with their newest pickup - Scot Pollard. Pollard just screams "Celtic" to me. Wooooo!

I wouldn't get too distraught; I know Reggie going over to the Celts is painful in that he was Pacers 4-Life, but your team needs to go younger and rebuild, and Miller's going to either look really silly out there, or end up playing 10 minutes max and averaging 6 points max.

Now if the Celtics get deep in the playoffs and the games get close, then Miller may end up becoming the east coast version of Robert Horry... and then the banging of the head against the wall can resume.
