Reggie Miller Candidate for Indiana Pacers’ General Manager Job
At first I was like that’s a horrible idea.
Then I thought about it. If Miller is running a team that means he won’t be commentating on any games. When I thought about it in that regard I changed my mind and thought this would be a great idea.
Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon has heeded Larry Bird’s private and public proclamations that Bird is working his final year as the team’s president, that his staying through the lockout had been a favor to his boss. As Simon investigates possible succession plans, there’s one candidate emerging over everyone else: Pacers legend Reggie Miller.
Simon has been canvassing people he respects – including his longtime former general manager Donnie Walsh – for opinions about how they believe Miller would do with the transition from television to management. Several people with longstanding ties to Miller and the Pacers are pushing Miller to pursue the job, and as one tells Yahoo! Sports: “He’s going to look hard at this, if it’s presented in the right way.”
Please Reggie take the job.
It isn’t like anyone would notice, you will be the GM of the Pacers not the Knicks. You could fail and still collect about 10 million dollars to just act like you are working like George Costanza.
More importantly to NBA fans everywhere, you will be giving us an early Christmas gift by removing yourself from our HDTVs.
