Should Heat keep Mike Miller? Will he ever be pretty good again?
 
A report says the Heat may plan to say goodbye to Mike Miller, who was good years ago but can't really be counted on anymore.

What do you think of his role on the Heat, and his game in general these days?

No need to make a decision right now. Give him one more season and if he still gets hurt/can't play then they can use the amnesty on him in the summer.

They need to sign him to a long term deal.

I know he injured his thumb/s, but when he came back he was just shit.
The heat really need some size and better defenders imo.

Hopefully he's fully recovered and ready to go this season.

The Heat management should keep Miller. He was injured throughout the season. It's sad that we never saw how we would fit in the offense. He can score, defend, and rebound. They would have a hard time finding someone who can replace Miller.

I'm rather amazed at this. At the end when he was 70% he was a major factor. If his thumb and shoulder are healed he will be a major part of this years run. Of course, if he isn't the team has a lot invested in him and need some production out of one of their few non min guys.

I am surprised by this as well. But I guess a lot of his skills are redundant on that team. Personally, I would love a player like Mike Miller on my squad. He can come on the Lakeshow and start at sf.

He is a very good all-around player, but Lebron and Wade turned him into a spot up shooter. He will continue to under perform as long as those two ball hogs are running Miami's offense. Bosh is another victim.

Name me one player that elevated his game playing alongside either one of those players?

This might win the "stupidest things ever said on ISH" threads. Varajao and Mo Williams parlayed their time with LeBron into 60M deals and all-star appearances.

love it, players that taken paycuts to play with the Prima donnas being ditched. :applause:

Heat should keep him. He was rebounding like a beast in the playoffs, and if he could have hit more open shots -- which he's certainly capable of -- the championship might have turned out differently.

Varejao got that contract because of his energy and hustle play, especially on the defensive end and on the boards, not because Lebron turned him into a 18/10 player or something.:lol In fact, all of his numbers went up after Lebron left. He had less than 1 more shot per game, and averaged 0.5 more points, but also 2 more rebounds per game. That's what happens when you don't have a stat-padder on your team snatching rebounds out of your hands. And he would had better numbers had he not gotten injured.

Mo had already averaged 17.3 and 17.2 in his last two years in Milwaukee. He averaged 17.8 (wow, what an increase!!) in his first year in Cleveland, then went down to 15.8 in his second year. Yeah, Lebron really helped him become a better player.:facepalm

You are a horrible poster.
