Brad Miller

Yahoo! Sports’ Marc J. Spears has the report:

Wolves Brad Miller to Y!:”To anyone who wants to listen I’m retiring after this season.” 14yr vet to concentrate on hunting tv shows postNBA

Miller came into the league in 1998 after going undrafted, and the two-time All-Star managed to have an extremely successful NBA career despite a complete lack of athleticism thanks to his reliable shooting stroke and fantastic high-post passing. Miller underwent microfracture surgery in May of 2011 before joining the Timberwolves in the off-season, and only appeared in seven games for the Timberwolves this season.

Miller has already spent a good deal of time appearing on hunting shows, and will now apparently make that his full-time profession. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

    I will still never forget the time he beaned Shaq with the ball from the baseline to the half court line dead on after Shaq dunked on him. But either way, he managed a pretty damn good career out of nothing. All the best Brad!

    Actually, David Kahn offered him to come back and be a part of the organization in a coaching role if he wishes it. This tells you the kind of guy and teammate he must be. Also, it is true that he is not athletic so clearly he has smarts for the game to be as successful as he was.

    Allow me to be a selfish, classless jerk: Watching Brad Miller play basketball for the Bulls (especially the second go around) was the most infuriating time period in my life – not ONE of the most infuriating periods, THE most infuriating – and I will forever rue the day(s) he stepped on the court for the red and black. Never in the history of basketball has someone been able to parlay seven-foot status into something resembling a decent career with such a limited (as in complete absence of) skills. So slow, so nonathletic, so uncoordinated, so so SO bad at basketball. It was absolutely unreal. He made Dickey Simpkins look like a hall-of-famer. He was so bad, that I had completely erased him from my subconscious (along with Kornell David, Ron Mercer, Rusty LaRue, and Toni “The Matador” Kukoc’s defense) before reading this article. Sleep well tonight, Wolves fans. Your nightmare is over. Seriously, I need help.

    He should retire immediately and pay back all the money he stole from the league the last couple of years! Seriously I forgot this trash ass clown even existed, what a waste of space! He’s a refrigerator with a uniform on, or was one.
