Reggie Miller and Jamaal Wilkes Named Naismith Hall of Fame Finalists

Dec. 1, 2010

UCLA alums Reggie Miller and Jamaal Wilkes are among the finalists for the 2011 class of the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Miller, the No. 3 (tied) career scorer in UCLA history with 2,095 points, averaged 25.9 points per game as a junior, the third-highest average in school history. He spend his entire 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers, setting the all-time record for three-pointers made (2,560) and attempts (6,486). He was a five-time All-Star and member of the 1996 Gold Medal winning Team USA.

The UCLA product was the Pacers' first-round selection in 1987. He twice led the NBA in total shots made from beyond the arc (1992-93, 1996-97) and led the league in free-throw percentage on five occasions (1990-91, 1998-99, 2000-01, 2001-02, 2004-05). He rose to fame in the 1990's in his club's fierce rivalry with the New York Knicks, turning in several memorable playoff performances against them.

Wilkes, a two-time first-team All-American and three-time Academic All-American, started all 90 games of his three-year career. Playing on teams that won two NCAA titles with perfect 30-0 records (he finished his career with a record of 86-4), he averaged 15.0 points and 7.4 rebounds for his career.

As a pro, Wilkes was a member of four NBA championship teams, first in 1975 with Golden State and the Lakers in 1980, '82 and '85. Wilkes won the 1975 NBA Rookie of the Year and finished his 12-year NBA career with an average of 17.7 points per game.
