Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim apparently isn’t a fan of Reggie Miller.
Miller, who works as a basketball commentator with TruTV, said something Boeheim didn’t like during the Orange’s win over UNC Asheville on Thursday. So as he sat down for a news conference today at the NCAA Tournament, he insulted Miller before taking any questions. Here is how it went down:
Boeheim: “I just wanted to tell Reggie that we do not play man-to-man defense, just in case you didn’t realize that.”
Miller: “I do know that.”
Never miss a local story.
Boeheim: “It reminded me, if I never went to an NBA game, you missed your first two jumpers.”
Miller: “That would never happen.”
Boeheim: “But if it did, me saying, ‘Why didn’t that guy just drive?’ Oh, because he can’t.”
Miller, a former NBA all-star and one of the best three-point shooters to ever play the game, seemed to take Boeheim’s jab in good spirits. But it was a very odd exchange.
