Reginald Wayne Miller was born August 24, 1965, in Riverside, California, where he later attended Riverside Polytechnic High School. Having been born with hip deformities, Reggie spent many years wearing leg braces to help build strength to compensate. Coming from an athletic family, Reggie was naturally inclined to play sports, and he quickly excelled at basketball. While attending the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1984, Reggie helped the Bruins reach the NIT Championship. He quickly made a name for himself on the court and still holds many several single-game records.
Reggie Miller married Martina Stavrou in 1992, but the couple divorced shortly later in 2001. However, the resulting breakup was messy, with Stavrou suing Miller for more money and accusing him of keeping his true net worth hidden. Things took a darker turn when the couple’s $1 million mansion in Indiana was burned down by arson, with rumors that Stavrou was involved. Though that has never been proven, the public battles eventually died down and fell into obscurity. Fortunately, Reggie found love once more with his girlfriend Laura Laskowski, who he has three children with, a son Ryker, a daughter Lennox, and a second daughter whose name they have yet to announce. On social media, Reggie can be found on his official Instagram account and his official Twitter account, where he posts about his career and his family.
In 1987, Reggie Miller was selected by the Pacers as the 11th pick in the first round of the NBA Draft. After adopting the number 31, Miller started his first season as a backup for shooting guard John Long and won respect from the fans. By 1992, Chuck Person’s departure from the Pacers had put Reggie in the spotlight as their top scoring threat. He immediately showed his potential by scoring 57 points in a game against the Charlotte Hornets – a new career high that still remains a Pacers record. In 1994, Reggie Miller gained widespread notoriety after an exemplary performance against the Knicks during the Eastern Conference Finals. During this game, Miller sunk several long-distance three-pointers. In 1995, he became famous for scoring 8 points in just 8.9 seconds. Again, this accomplishment came against the Knicks at the Eastern Conference Finals. During this period, he developed a long-standing feud with Spike Lee, a dedicated fan of the Knicks.
After suffering a serious eye injury, Miller was out of action for a long period and took the opportunity to start a talk show called “The Reggie Miller Show.” Although Miller performed well in the next few years, the Pacers were defeated by the Chicago Bulls during the playoffs in 1998. When Michael Jordan retired, Reggie Miller and the Pacers were expected to perform extremely well in the coming years. Unfortunately, a number of disappointing performances followed. In 2002, Reggie started to accept that he was no longer the focal point of the Pacers. He was no longer the top scorer, but he remained a strong leader in the dressing room and provided a source of inspiration for younger players. That being said, Miller continued to contribute – especially when several of the Pacers’ top players were ruled out through suspension or injury. Miller’s final game for the Pacers was in 2005, and he received a standing ovation from the crowd in Indianapolis.
