It's quite another, though, to suggest he's one of the very best all-around shooting guards, and Mark Jackson, current Golden State Warriors head On the other hand, Miller has some stiff competition that Jackson leaves unmentioned. Let's take a look at where Reggie really stacks up among the best

Among Reggie Miller 's broadcasting sins: going into the Golden State Warriors locker room to There was plenty of competition, but what was most angering about Reggie Miller was always the Neither signature skill nor his singular ruthlessness in exploiting it has deserted Reggie Miller as a

When Reggie Miller saw how fans reacted to the Warriors when they made their way to China, he was reminded of something. It was hard for him not to flash back to the popularity of Michael Jordan's 1990s Bulls.

"They arrived [in China] at 3, 4 o'clock in the morning and there was one, two thousand people waiting for them at the airport and at their hotel," Miller said during TNT's start-of-season conference call Wednesday. "It reminds me a lot of like when Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls used to travel. It was like the Beatles were coming, and the Warriors have that effect."

The Warriors have begun to build a global brand as Stephen Curry has become one of the most popular players in the world, and then there was the summer of China Klay, which only heightened that interest.

Pelicans' future riding on results of Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins experiment

  Pelicans' future riding on results of Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins experiment Can the Pelicans find success with an Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins pairing? Or is another round of trade rumors inevitable?It will be fascinating to see how Jimmy Butler fits in Minnesota, how Carmelo Anthony and Paul George fit in Oklahoma City, how Chris Paul fits in Houston and how Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving fit in Boston. But this coming year will also serve as a full-season trial run for the Anthony Davis-DeMarcus Cousins pairing in New Orleans, one that comes at a crucial time for the franchise and for both players.

Reggie Miller put in his two cents on Kevin Durant’s move to the Golden State Warriors . Durant would have been a god if he stayed in Oklahoma City. People always say to me, “I’m so glad you stayed with us”—that I stayed for 18 years with a small-market (Pacers) team in Indiana.

But it's how the team has come together — both as players and simply in roster moves — that has made Golden State so special, according to Miller.

"The Warriors — it's almost like a perfect storm," he said. "You have everything encompassed in your players, as well as your coaching staff, you've won two out of three championships, you've got two of the top 10 players in Steph and KD (Kevin Durant) and you've probably got four of the top 20 players including Draymond (Green) and Klay (Thompson), it's the perfect storm."

The perfect storm has Curry, Thompson and Green locked up with long-term deals. It has Durant taking less money to keep the team together, which allowed the Warriors to re-sign important pieces such as Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Javale McGee. It even enabled them to add a player of Nick Young's caliber.

There's reason to be enamored with this team, and Miller is just one of many impressed by the Warriors.

"They are all young … and they play the right way," he said. "There's no ball-hog, there's no sticking, it's a beautiful game to watch; there's back cuts, there's proper screening, there's fast breaks, there's 3s, and they play great defense. Great defense.
