Sidney Moncrief is way too low. He should be ahead/around Dumars. Dennis Johnson should be a lot higher too, but they may have considered him a point guard, so it's not that bad.

Reggie Miller's overrated.

Edit: Oh, wow, I'm watching the video, and it appears that Rick Kamla isn't very bright... he had Dumars and Reggie in his top 5.

Reggie Miller has become insanely over-rated.

Sam Jones , Hal Greer David Thompson , Bill Sharman , Dave Bing and Mitch Richmond were all better than Reggie Miller.

Probably true but he gets points for durability, loyalty to the Pacers and above all, his charisma. He is a very recognizable name, after all.
Probably overrated, yes but most NBA ranks aren't purely based on ability and accomplishments anyway.

The Miller bashing has already began, but I have to agree. He was a pure shooter. Not a defensive player. Not that great of a passer. A bad rebounder. Shot the ball and shot it well. That's about it.

Solid list overall with a few minor exceptions, and of course Miller being 7.

If it was top 10 SG against the Knicks, Reggie would be a lock .

But 18, 3 , 3 with below average defense and not even one All Nba 2nd team does not put you at 7th spot.
Moncrief should take his place, I guess defense is indeed underrated.

Reggie Miller over Mitch Richmond? Give me a break. Even though Reggie was one of the best 3 point shooters of all time, his all-around game wasn't that great. Mitch had a better all-around game. It's not his fault he was on a crappy team the majority of the time.

Yeah, looking at this list I thought Sam Jones, Hal Greer, and Dave Bing got hosed on this list.

I would not call that list good by any standards

Some of those so called "experts" have no clue what they are talking about.

I mean, who should I start with?


Mark Jackson rates Reggie Miller as the 4th Best SG ever over Iverson, Gervin, Drexler? Are you f*ckin kidding me?

Or maybe Hollinger. Who thinks Drexler isn't even a Top 10 SG of All-Time? Wow. I mean, he probably thought Drexler was a SF and decided not to vote for him. There can't be any other reason for this. Scoop Jackson must've thought the same.

A total of 4 ESPN Analysts think Reggie Miller was a Top 5 SG and better than Drexler or AI.

Some guy named Jack Ramsey puts Monroe (overrated) as 4th Best SG ever, over Gervin and Drexler, while Iverson isn't even Top 10. This is retarded

Oh and I forgot to mention Adande and John Barry.

Dumars is a Top 4 SG according to both. Only Kobe, West, and MJ have been better. No other SG is better than Dumars. Hmmm....I would love for anyone to tell me what's going on in there head? Adande also thinks Gervin wasn't even Top 10. While Miller was better than Gervin, AI, and Drexler according to Adande. They are glad we can't see who else they voted for that didn't make Top 10. He might be the one who voted for Jimmy Walker as Top 10.

Oh and John Barry is in the same retarded ship. Dumars is Top 4. Reggie is Top 5. All better than Drexler, AI, and Gervin.

Unbelivable
