I know, I know. But it's hard to make an argument that having Brad Mille rather than Scot Pollard that season would hinder our record in any way. If anything, I think that solidifies our frontcourt even more, allowing JO to matchup with smaller guys... blah, blah, blah... Anyways, I don't see how we don't possibly win 4 or 5 more games that season with a prime all star form Brad Miller who was getting 15/10/5 with a few triple doubles that year, I believe... I think we could have won the chip in 03-04, prebrawl. When injuries overtook us in the playoffs. JO would have been able to play less minutes during the regular season with Brad Miller out there. They meshed well together in the year and a half I saw them together.
