After losing in overtime and letting Oklahoma City tie up the series, 2-2, Mike Miller knows what his team needs: more flair. That’s why he’s going to bring it in Game Five. Two more taped fingers. Three more bracelets. A second elbow sleeve. A headband. A hair scrunchie. A second pair of tights. A puka shell necklace. Google Glass. 
Mike Miller has been called a spare part, a role player, and a missing piece, but really, he’s an accessory.

"You would always put him in his room, and then we’d lock the door, and then we’d put the dogs out, and then we’d lock the front door. Well, he found out how to unlock doors, unlocked his door, went downstairs, let the dogs in the house and opened the front door. About an hour later we got a call from our neighbors, saying, ‘Your monkey is riding your dogs around the neighborhood.’…I said, ‘C’mon y’all, y’all got to get in the house.’"

He might be the toughest guy on the team.

The only time Mike Miller looks truly happy is when Crazy Town’s “Butterfly” plays over the arena sound system.

NBA Trade Minutia of the Day: Mike Miller Edition

Brainworks posted some interesting thoughts about Mike Miller the other day that has motivated me to research  player comps, both current & historical, for the Heat’s new 6th man. While still working on that(I’ll have something posted on the topic soon), I stumbled upon some info about how Miller’s draft day fate was tied into one of the biggest trades in league history…C-Webb for Penny.

Back in 1993, when some of you kids were running around in diapers, Golden State traded Penny Hardaway and 1st round picks in '96, '98, & '00, to the Magic for Chris Webber. Those picks were later used on Todd Fuller(11th pick in ‘96 by GSW), Vince Carter(5th pick in ‘98 by ORL), and Mike Miller(5th pick in ‘00 by ORL). The picks sent to the Magic were actually then dealt a few times between June of ‘93 and 2000. 

Miller has certainly been a part of some interesting trades. He was a piece in the Kevin Love for OJ Mayo deal, traded by the Magic with the pick later used on Kendrick Perkins, and as part of the Ricky Rubio to T-Wolves fiasco in ‘09. Say what you will about his on the court skills, but Miller sure knows how to get traded.

Mike Miller is as wet as an ocean. Welcome to South Beach, Mike.
