KENDALLVILLE, Ind. (WANE) - East Noble High School welcomed back one of its most distinguished alumni.
Former two time NBA All-Star, Brad Miller, began his basketball career at East Noble and came back Saturday evening to be honored and inducted into the Hall of Fame.
He said coming back for the award was the first time he'd been back on that court in 13 years, but he brought back his wealth of knowledge from his 14 season career to share with the current players.
"All younger generations that I've seen coming in, it's just a matter of truly understanding the game, and respect the game, and it'll be good to you," Miller said.
Athletic officials at East Noble said it's an honor to have Miller back because he's a good role model for the younger boys.
"It opens their eyes to what possibilities are,and I think that sometimes possibilities can seem so far off, but the fact of the matter is with a lot of hard work there are chances, and East Noble is a place that can prepare people for that," said Rief Gilg, the Athletic Director at East Noble.
Since retirement, Miller has been traveling and working on his hunting show that is set to premiere in the summer.
Miller played college basketball at Purdue and played for six NBA teams including the Pacers.
