Miller Visits Children's Museum Statue During Indiana Trip
On a trip back to the Hoosier state, Pacers legend Reggie Miller made sure to visit the recently unveiled statue of his likeness at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, where he is taking his famous jumpshot next to former Pacers coach and current radio analyst Bobby "Slick" Leonard.
Posting on his Instagram, Miller was nearly at a loss for words at his inclusion in the Sports Legends Experience.
"I can't put into words how honored and humbled I am to be apart of the Sports Legend Experience located at the @childrensmuseum," he wrote.
"To be next to Mr BOOMBABY himself Slick Leonard is a dream come true, I'm a stones throw away from Larry Legend, The Big O and my adopted little sis @catchin24."
I can't put into words how honored and humbled I am to be apart of the Sports Legend Experience located at the @childrensmuseum. Thank you Ande, Lori and all the men and women of the Children's Museum, who made me feel like a kid again and took the time out of your busy schedule to host my family and friends... To be next to Mr BOOMBABY himself Slick Leonard is a dream come true, I'm a stones throw away from Larry Legend, The Big O and my adopted little sis @catchin24.. As Wayne n Garth would say, "I'm not WORTHY "!!! People get to the Children's Museum, not only for the Legends Experience, but Dinosphere, DC Comics, Playscape, Beyond Spaceship Earth just to name a few exhibits to keep the young and old smiling from ear to ear. Sorry for the long post, but this is a MUST.. #GoingBackToIndiana #NeverGrowOld
In the gallery of photos from his visit to the museum, Miller and his family makes sure to stop by the statues of Tamika Catchings, Larry Bird, and Oscar Robertson as well.
Miller even complimented the accuracy of his statue, noting his "EARS and crooked right elbow are on point."

But that wasn't all Miller did during his trip to Indiana. The 5-time NBA All-Star also travelled south to Brown County to engage in one of his biggest passions: mountain biking.
Miller, who sports a BoomBaby kit made by Castelli, spent some time hitting the trails.
"I never knew that was always in my backyard," Miller wrote on Instagram. "Appreciate all the trail love from my fellow Hoosiers who we ran in to.. Can't wait to come back."
