Reggie Miller on the New York Knicks:

I'm telling you right now, I hate the Knicks. Absolutely hate those kids....Face it: The Knicks are dirty players. Let me take the back. They're not dirty players, but when things aren't going New York's way, they're going to do whatever it takes to win. And if that means hurting someone, then they'll do it. I'm not going to say that's dirty, but sometimes they take it to the extreme.

On the mental side of the game:

Everybody in the NBA knows how to play basketball or else they wouldn't be there. But what separates the good players from the great players is their mental capacity, not only to overcome their opponent, but to get through the tough spots...I always feel mentally stronger than any opponent I step on the same floor with. He might have more talent than I do, but I don't think anybody is mentally stronger than me. I'll match wills with anybody.

On determination: On Cheryl Miller: "Cheryl, I got 39."

"Reggie, that's great."

"Yeah, so how'd you do?"

"Uh, I got 105."

Thing was, Cheryl didn't say it to be mean, But, damn, 105 points in one game? But I got my revenge a few years later...

We got out to the court and shesaid, "Your ball." I told her she could have it first. So she kind of crouched down, made her usual strong first move, got right past me and put up the shot.Cheryl paused for a moment and then said, in a real serious tone, "We're going to play Hors

From Booklist:

Indiana Pacer guard Miller may be the NBA's "best shooter," as the subtitle claims, but rather than "sharpest tongue," many fans might substitute "most self-aggrandizing windbag." Still, his streak shooting can be dazzling, and many of his best games have come before a network television audience. This is Reggie's diary kept during the 1994^-95 season. Don't expect the book to generate any scandalous headlines; despite his trash-talkin', hot-dog image, Reggie in print turns out to be an intelligent young man whose opinions rarely extend beyond common knowledge. For example, he refers to the Knicks as a dirty team and says their star guard, John Starks, has a hollow little head. These are not revelations to NBA fans. He does provide a good sense of the NBA season's interminable length and touches on the delicate chemistry that must be established on a winning team. On balance, this is a lightweight, sanitized look at the NBA, but Miller's name will attract some attention, especially from Pacer fans. Wes Lukowsky

From Library Journal:

Miller, star of basketball's Indiana Pacers, and coauthor Wojciechowski have produced a run-of-the-mill chronology of the 1994-95 National Basketball Association season as seen through Miller's eyes. Miller, who is perhaps best known as the player who got in a "woofing" contest with director Spike Lee during the 1993-94 playoffs, does not come across as the egotistical, loud-mouthed person he often appears to be but instead reveals himself to be a shy young man with a loving, supportive family. More information about Miller's life away from basketball would have made the book more interesting, however. Miller is a keen observer who has a good relationship with his coaches, teammates, and opponents, but his views and comments are a bit on the bland side. In summary, this book has little "hook" to induce readers to pick it up, except, perhaps, in the state of Indiana. A marginal purchase.?William O. Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S. Lib., Greensburg, Pa.
