Michael Jordan to a young Reggie Miller: ‘Don’t ever trash talk Black Jesus’

Michael Jordan and Reggie Miller’s storied clash conclude in the 1998 Eastern finals. The brash, sharpshooting hero of the Indiana Pacers recorded one of the huge points of his career in Game 4 when he moves away from Michael Jordan and hit a winning 3-pointer to even the series against the Bulls, However, as many Bulls, fans will groan, an abhorrent foul may or may not have appeared shortly before that clutch shot.

The hard-nose Pacers took the Bulls to seven games in that series, and drive in the fourth quarter of the winner-take-all finale. Said: He and I had somewhat of a different relationship,” Miller said in the episode. “Most public fierce Michael Jordan, and rightfully but I didn’t fierce Michael Jordan like the rest of the league did, and we had to lock horns over it.
