Once upon a time, Andre Miller was a triple-double threat before become an average-scoring, excellent passing point guard with no jump shot. Then, he emerged as a veteran scoring and passing threat with the 76ers before being signing with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he has emerged as a …… bench player?
According to Yahoo!Sports, Miller has not yet been named the starting point guard in Portland. He averaged 16,3 points and 6.5 assists last season and they gave him $21 million in the offseason and yet somehow he’s competing with Steve Blake?
My pre-draft projections and rankings aren’t done yet (will be soon and posted at the end of the week), but I’m sure as hell that Miller is ranked way higher than Blake. For now, anyway.
While certainly worth reading, I’m taking the report with a grain of salt. I’d be stunned if Miller – barring injury – doesn’t start for the Blazers most of the season.
