Default Mitch Richmond Vs. Reggie Miller

Who's the better player and why?
For me it's Mitch Richmond...one of the most underrated NBA players of all-time.

Who's better? Reggie Miller.

Why? He's just better. Common knowledge.

It really matters farrr more what a player does in the postseason in his career than what he accomplishes during the regular season anytime the argument is close, IMO.

No, Mitch Richmond's ring does NOT count.

Common trend, not common knowledge...Mitch Richmond IS the better all around player, hopefully this thread will educate certain people.

It's not his fault he played for Golden State & Sacramento his entire career and made the playoffs 3 times through out his career. What exactly made Miller better? Outside of his clutch ability, nothing really.

Why didn't you make the thread "Mitch Richmond is better than Reggie Miller, and I'm going to make you people realize that" instead of asking who is better. Seems odd.

And I already told you, Reggie Miller is better.

I closed the thread before, but I'll do it again, thanks to my stellar argument.

Reggie was better on defense too.

Yeah... he only made the playoffs 3 times.

So, he wasn't even really a very good regular season player.

Miller used to make the playoffs every year and usually won at least one series each time. His best teammates were Chuck Person, Rik Smits, Dale Davis, Jalen Rose, and finally Jermaine O'Neal/Ron Artest.

I'd say Reggie had a lot to do with getting the Pacers in and advancing them throughout his career. He's the type of player that makes a team successful by being there and it showed.

Mitch Richmond makes Mitch Richmond successful and it shows.

His leadership and his ability to take it to the next level when necessary.

Edit: That was for Reggie even though to most that should be obvious.

Are you suggesting that Richmond had the same level of talent around him as Miller?

Not really, why do you say that? Miller was never known for his defense.

I agree, Miller was the better leader and was obviously more clutch...but I think Richmond was the better play maker and a more effecient rebounder. Mitch's shooting ability is often overlooked...he was a terrific shooter from any where on the court.

Two totally different types of shooting guards who always took a backseat to MJ and Clyde.


Mitch played in 6 NBA All-Star games and made 5 All-NBA teams includinf (I believe 3 2nd teams). Reggie played in 5 All-Star games and made 3 All-NBA 3rd teams. Reggie was great throughout his years as you can tell by how spread out his All-Star appearances were. His first was in 90 and his last was in 2000. Mitch made his All-Star appearances one after another form 1993 to 1998.


The better talent is of course Mitch Richmond, he could do things of the court that Reggie couldn't. But who is the greater player, probally Reggie Miller, for his longer career, clutchness and playoff sucess.

How much talent does one need to make the playoffs in a league where almost half of the teams make the postseason? (more than half in some of their years)

I can't disagree with that statement, I'm glad someone recognizes how terrific of a player Mitch was...hardly ever gets mentioned.

Ask Dominique Wilkins...he played on Sacramento & Golden State, you can picture the rest.
