Ryan On Reggie

Bob Ryan checks in with thoughts on Reggie Miller:

I'm not going to pooh-pooh this until I see it. I have too much respect for Reggie Miller, a very intelligent man. We know he hasn't gained so much as an ounce. He could conceivably get into very good shape. I don't know if that would be 15 minutes a game NBA shape, but it would assuredly be good shape.

He knows himself. I assume he has reason to believe he can still make an open 15-footer. The larger question would be how he gets it off. He was always the master of Getting Open. Could he still do that against defenders young enough to be his son? Doubtful, but not necessarily inconceivable, I guess.

This Reggie comeback is a long, long shot, a five-pointer at the very least. What it does tell us is how impressed Reggie Miller is with what Danny Ainge has done. He thinks it would be cool to play with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen. He must smell a ring.
