It’s no secret round these parts that we love us some Reggie Miller. Thus, here’s what he told CBS Sports regarding the Madison Square Garden crowd’s reaction to Kobe’s 61-point game the other night. (via Slam)
“I was texting Spike as the game was going on, saying how disappointed I was in the fans chanting ‘MVP’ for Kobe,” Miller said Tuesday, speaking on a TNT pre-All-Star conference call. “I was like, ‘How the mighty have fallen.’ Because I remember in times past, I never got cheered. I’m sure Jordan never got cheered. And now they are chanting ‘MVP!’ for Kobe? And all [Lee] kept doing was texting back and going, ‘Look, times have changed. The climate has changed.’
“I wish I would’ve gotten the red carpet treatment when I went to the Garden,” Miller said. “That would’ve been nice.”
Hate to break it to you, Reg, but regardless of climate, you’re just never gonna get the “red carpet treatment” from someone you rape repeatedly during the NBA Playoffs. That’s what Dad always said about why Mom left anyway. What? Some guys just get more excited about “40 Games in 40 Nights” than others.
