Mike Miller Denies Report That Mike Miller Will Retire After The Season

Mike Miller of the Miami Heat is moving like he is about 50 years old these days.  This had lead to speculation from ESPN and other outlets that he will retire after the Heat play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals.  However, this has been denied by a pretty good source.  Mike Miller himself said he will not retire after the Finals.

The text message was swift and to the point, only minutes after ESPN reported that he had said these NBA Finals could be the final two weeks of his career.

“What!!!!” was the text message reply from Miami Heat forward Mike Miller to the Sun Sentinel.

A few minutes later, after [Miller] had the chance to get to others who had made him aware of the report, came a phone call. “I’m not retiring,” he told the Sun Sentinel. “I don’t know what I’m doing.”

If Mike Miller does decide to keep playing, I have no idea how he can do it.  He is just broken down beyond belief.  He certainly isn’t the player the Heat thought they were signing two offseasons ago.  He just doesn’t have the ability to be consistent anymore.  Every time he walks or runs, it looks like he might keel over.

I’ve always enjoyed Mike Miller, but I think it might be time for him to hang it up.  However, if he does keep playing, I hope he can finally get healthy.  When he is healthy, he can be one of the more versatile forwards in the league.  Not many three point shooters can rebound like him when healthy.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
