Editorial Reviews

Reggie Miller single-handedly crushed the heart of Knick fans multiple times. But it was the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals which solidified Miller as Public Enemy #1 in New York City. With moments to go in Game 1 and facing a seemingly insurmountable deficit of 105-99, Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds to give his Indiana Pacers an astonishing victory. This career-defining performance, combined with his on-court give-and-take with Knicks fan Spike Lee, helped establish Miller's legend as "The Garden's Greatest Villain."

Through thrilling highlights and engaging interviews with Miller, his sister Cheryl, Spike Lee, Patrick Ewing and many others, Peabody Award-winning director Dan Klores uses humor and wit to capture the intensity of a rivalry between two cities and create a "terrifically entertaining piece of work*" critics were calling "the hit of Sundance**." (*The New York Post, **The Oregonian, 2010 Sundance Film Festival)

- 2 Director's Statements

I grew up with this group of New York Knicks, so to watch this DVD was a real pleasure. Of course, you had the centerpieces: Ewing, Starks, and Oakley. But the DVD also provides footage of other notables such as Greg Anthony, Anthony Mason, Charles Smith, Derek Harper, Doc Rivers, Herb Williams, and more. From Indiana, you had Mark Jackson, Rik Smits, Antonio and Dale Davis, and Larry Brown. (The DVD focuses on the Knicks from 1992-95, not the Knicks after 1995 which center around Allan Houston, Latrell Sprewell, Marcus Camby, and Larry Johnson.) The mere sight of these guys bring back great memories -- the old uniforms, the pregame introductions, the NBA-on-NBC theme song, Marv Albert, Market Square Arena... everything.

As much as I hated Reggie Miller, his interviews have a sense of humor that bring this DVD to life. The documentary paints a complete picture of the early part of his career -- how he always had a chip on his shoulder, whether it was being drafted instead of Steve Alford, or trying to top his sister's 105-point game.

Although the director, Dan Klores, claims to be a New York fan, I think he provides a balanced look from both perspectives: Indiana and New York. He describes how both places claim to be the Mecca of basketball, and what members of both communities think about the other.

Altogether, this DVD is a fun piece of nostalgia that makes you yearn for the great rivalries of the 1990s, something that today's NBA sorely lacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way They Played The Game....Then March 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
Winning Time! I watched this documentary when it premiered on ESPN. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect, but, about ten minutes into the presentation, I remembered Reggie Miller. That skinny, brash, trash talking guy out of the California culture, that was selected by The Indiana Pacers instead of Steve Alford. ( The biggest disappointment in Indiana since Larry Bird went to Boston ). As this film will show, Reggie earned his stripes in the tough Eastern Conference of the NBA, where rivalries were more akin to fueds than anything else. The memorable clashes between the Bulls, The Pistons, The Celtics and of course The Knicks, would be where Reggie would change minds and attitudes, but none of these engagements even come close to the occasions of playing the Patrick Ewing led Knicks. Once I discovered this project was available on DVD, I couldn't wait to see it uninterrupted. The stuff they are passing off today in the NBA, pales in comparison to what you'll see just briefly in this film, and that is the only knock I have on this splendid, informative and elevating film. The interviews with many of the principles confirms that it was more than just a game. These swaggering gentlemen who now find themselves outfitted in the garments of NBA, should be required to watch this piece of league history and maybe aspire to commit to putting a similar excellent representation before their ticket buying public, highly unlikely. However, you can now witness, ( If you weren't there...then ) what all that rumbling was coming out of the NBA Eastern Conference, when the players really knew how to do it....and just for a moment, this kid from The Indiana Pacers became The King Of New York. A Must Have/See

4.0 out of 5 stars Only covers the 93, 94, and 95 playoffs March 15, 2010
The Knicks and Pacers met six times in the Reggie Miller era, each side winning three times. Neither team won the NBA championship, but the Knicks made the Finals twice in 94 and 99, and the Pacers made the Finals finally in 2000. Maybe the 98, 99, and 00 meetings did not have the memorable set pieces of the earlier three meetings, but exluding them from the documentary leaves an incomplete picture. If not covered those later three meetings should have been referenced.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The guy looked like Mr. Potatohead on a stick." May 23, 2010
Reggie Miller is so skinny he doesn't have a shadow. Reggie Miller is so thin he could slide thru a door without opening it, except that then his elephant ears would get caught in the crack. But Reggie Miller was a phenomenal basketball player, and whenever he laced 'em up in Madison Square Garden, he elevated his game even more, and it became almost like performance art. ESPN, celebrating its 30 years on air, is doing big things with its 30 for 30 documentaries, and this one may be my favorite so far. "Winning Time: Reggie Miller Vs. The New York Knicks" sounds like a mouthful, which is absolutely appropriate for Reggie Miller. Reggie can talk, brother. Reggie can trash talk. Prolifically.

The film focuses on the Indiana Pacers' very bitter, very heated rivalry with the Knicks back in the mid-'90s, and Reggie, the king of histrionics, was in the thick of things. Everyone respected Reggie's game, but the same can't be said for his constant chatter. Reggie trash talks partly - or maybe mostly - because of his big sister Cheryl, in whose shadow Reggie chafed for a looooong time. There's a funny anecdote in which Reggie, when he was a kid, boasts that he had just scored 40 points only to learn that his sister had just scored 105. Cheryl Miller may just be the best female basketball player ever, and Reggie heard about this all his early life and when he was in UCLA and even during his career as a Pacer. Trash talking can be a self-defense mechanism, and Reggie was a virtuoso of baiting. Even Cheryl describes her little brother as "a bad itch down your spine that you can't get to." Patrick Ewing straight out called him a con man. And from another guy in the film: "The guy looked like Mr. Potatohead on a stick." But Reggie can back up his lip with his exploits on the court.
