Granted he would have been a good addition to the C's but let's face facts here the man always has been and always will be a member of the Indiana Pacers. People remember him as a Pacer for him to come back for one season to play in Boston and all for the sake of winning a title would have just been an afterthought to his career. People would remeber that he had won a title (if he came back) but they would have wanted to do so with him being a member of the team that drafted him not a team that wanted to sign him on for one all-or-nothing last harrah end to his career.
The fact of the matter is that winning championships doesn't define the greatness of a player its the heart that he put into the game on the field of play during his career. Championships are great yeah but you don't need to win championships to be great just look to John Stockton and Karl Malone if you need further confirmation of that.
In conclusion, to Reggie Miller thanks for the memories as a Pacer and also thank you for not tarnishing your image all for the sake of a last hurrah and a last shot at glory. You always have been and always will be in my mind and in the minds of all sports fans an Indiana Pacer.
