5 QUESTIONS FOR ... REGGIE MILLER


5 QUESTIONS FOR ... REGGIE MILLER
Former Knick killer and now TNT analyst Reggie Miller talked with The Post's Justin Terranova about the surprising turn the NBA playoffs have taken, why he's disappointed with the MSG crowd and if LeBron James should leave Cleveland.

Q: Why have the Magic been so effective against the Cavaliers?

A: I just think it's been a game of mismatches, much the same way it was for Orlando in the Boston series. The Cavs haven't found a way to match up with 6-foot-10 Hedo Turkoglu and 6-foot-10 Rashard Lewis. And that's given them so many problems.

Q: Are you surprised at the lack of urgency the Phil Jackson-coached Lakers have shown throughout the playoffs?

A: Yeah, I don't know if it's lack of concentration or discipline. You think of Jackson's teams as mentally tough and focused, and just the casualness of "We'll just win our home games" is surprising, and we all know that the Nuggets can win road games, so they could be in trouble.

Q: Do you think LeBron's decision to re-sign with the Cavaliers or become a free agent after next season could be affected by winning a championship in Cleveland?

A: I hope for the game that he stays in Cleveland because it's good to have the superstar players in the smaller markets, and that's coming from a guy who spent 18 years in one. I really don't think winning or not winning a championship matters. I know that's what Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) did after he won a title in Milwaukee and then asked to be traded to a bigger market. I am sure that's what people are thinking, but he could win multiple championships in Cleveland.

Q: There's been a lot of talk the Knicks will take Stephen Curry with the eighth pick in the draft. Do you think he's a good fit for Mike D'Antoni's system?

A: It's perfect for him. He can run up and down, he's a lethal shooter. I think everyone questions his size, but if you can get your shot off, that's the only thing that matters. I think it would be a great pick; from one shooter to the other, I think he has a great feel and a great stroke.

Q: Earlier in the year, you spoke out about the Knicks fans chanting Kobe Bryant's name when he was lighting up the Garden?

A: I was shocked and disappointed. I always thought the Garden crowd had the most knowledgeable fans in the business . . . but I almost hit the floor when I heard that through my TV. I never thought I'd see that happen.
