Reggie Miller decided not to come back to the NBA and play with the Celtics or anybody else.
After two weeks of pushing his body to see how it might react to the punishment of an NBA season, Miller called the Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge earlier Thursday evening to tell him the news.
“That’s it,” he said by telephone from his home in Malibu, Calif. “Physically, I know I could have done it. But mentally, when you do something like this, you’ve either got to be all in or all out. And I’ve decided I’m all out.”
“Earlier today (Thursday), I was ready to come back. I was going to do it. But then I flew back here, I thought about it, I talked to a lot of people, and honestly, most people told me I should come back. Charles (Barkley), Mark (Jackson), Doug (Collins), they all said I should do it. And when I was back in Indy this week for the Peyton (Manning charity bowling event), people on the streets, they’d tell me to do it.”
