Miller will join his sister, Cheryl, as a Basketball Hall of Fame member.

Reggie Miller is headed to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Though many will argue that this should have happened last year, nevertheless, the former UCLA Bruin and Indiana Pacers star will be enshrined into the Hall with a 2012 class that also includes coach Don Nelson.

Miller, a Riverside native, played 18 seasons with the Pacers and retired in 2005 with a career average of 18.2 points per game. He shot almost 89% from the free throw line and close to 40% from three for his career. He was named to the All-NBA Third Team three times ('95', '96', '98') and was a five-time All-Star. Miller retired as the all-time leader in three-pointers made with 2,560 before the Boston Celtics' Ray Allen broke it.

Miller is also second all-time in scoring behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar among UCLA players.

Miller, known for his clutch shooting and trash talking, is currently a TNT color commentator.
