Reggie Miller, Indiana Pacers
When Miller faced off with Jordan as a rookie in a 1987 preseason game he did a very foolish thing. He started trash-talking Michael Jordan. Miller had gotten off to a hot start in the game when he began chirping at Jordan. MJ went on to outscore Miller 42-0 for the rest of the game.
The two would have more legendary battles throughout the ‘90s, including the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals when they met for the first time in the playoffs. “Reggie drives me nuts. It’s like chicken-fighting with a woman. It irritates me.”
