NBA: Miller named to NBA Hall of Fame

Reggie Miller, who played his entire 17-year career with the Indiana Pacers, was named to the American Basketball Hall of Fame on Monday.

Miller is the Pacers all-time leading scorer and a five-time National Basketball Association all-star.

Also named to the Hall of Fame Monday are former NBA players Ralph Sampson, Jamaal Wilkes and ex-player and NBA coach Don Nelson.

Miller finished as Indiana's all-time leader with 25,279 points. He recorded the most three-pointers made (320) in NBA playoff history.

Nelson, who has been a player, coach and general manager, is one of just two coaches to earn NBA Coach of the Year honours three times. He has more than 1,300 NBA coaching victories and captured five titles as a player with the Boston Celtics.

Wilkes won four NBA titles with Golden State and the Los Angeles Lakers, while Sampson was rookie of the year in 1984 and made the all-star team the next year.

Induction ceremonies will take place in September.

Former players Bernard King and Maurice Che1eks failed to earn enough votes to make it this year.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
