Report: Mike Miller choosing between Cavaliers, Mavericks, Rockets and Nuggets

When LeBron James chose to return home to Cleveland it was assumed that Mike Miller would likely follow him. Remember one of the reasons LeBron was frustrated with Heat ownership is they amnestied Miller (who then was healthy for a full season in Memphis).

But so far, Miller has yet to agree to a deal.

The Cavaliers are still the team to beat but the Mavericks, Rockets and Nuggets are in the mix now, too, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Of course, money is going to factor into this. Everybody says it’s about winning until the money is on the table.

But I’d still bet on the Cavs. The pull of LeBron is strong.

    Take it from a Wiz fan, MIke MIller is never going to play on a team with JaVale McGee ever again. That’s not going to happen. Nobody with a lick of sense needs that sort of headache (unless of course the mortgage is due, but no reason to suspect Mike’s hurting too much for money).

    Come on aboard the Cleveland bandwagon, Mike! The weather’s fine.

      But the city is a dump.

    LeBron knows Mike Miller saved him against the thunder and ray saved him against the Spurs! He definitely learned a lot from the heat! We thank you LeBron and I know you’re appreciative of the heat showing you how to be a champion! Good luck to you!

    • dls612 - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:50 PM

      Yep yall the same group that believes there’s an i in team! Do any one believes he would have a ring or rings by now if four years ago he didn’t choose the heat? The pressure is on the Cleaveland Cavs organization!

    • antistratfordian - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:14 PM

      LeBron saved Miami more times than any of us can count. He did all the heavy lifting. Ray and Mike helped.

      You must mean they earned their pay? Right? But but but mj played one on 5 with one arm tied behind his back and and a bowling ball tied to his waist buy a chain and and… oh never mind. smh

      • apkyletexas - Jul 15, 2014 at 12:55 AM

        MJ never played one on five. He had David Stern and three refs making sure he got multiple phantom foul calls every fourth quarter, so it was actually five on five.

      • bkbell3 - Jul 15, 2014 at 1:04 AM

        You must not of heard of the jordon rules. Players who are agressive and go to the hole a lot are going to get fouled more and get more calls. If you want to complain about someone ask how durant who is mostly a jump shooter gets to the line so often? If some hits him with a drop of their sweat he gets the call. mj was legit and didn’t need on stinking Sounds like your favorite team lost a lot to mj. lol

      • apkyletexas - Jul 15, 2014 at 3:37 AM

        For those of us who were old enough to actually watch the games – yes, MJ frequently got to the foul line because a defender breathed on him. But believe what you like. I’m a Spurs fan, so MJ was not busy beating my team. We didn’t make it to the finals until the year after his last title.

    If Miller wants the money he goes to Denver (which is where I think he’s going). Otherwise Miller goes to Cleveland with Lebron.

  5. patfic5 - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:05 PM

    Just sign with the Cavs and stop playin, Mike.

  6. jzone954 - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:12 PM

    Money talks, not everybody is willing to take a paycut to join Lebron in Cleveland. In south beach? Of course. Besides having Wade and Bosh helped with those decisions as well. I read that prior to Lebron choosing Miami he reached out to Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, And Wade and asked them to come to Cleveland and they all said no. Interesting to see what happens though.

    • therealhtj - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:26 PM

      Truth is, Lebron or no, there’s no worse city in the NBA. Sure there are a few equally bad ones, but none worse.

    • jzone954 - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:43 PM

      I’m not the guy who disses anyone’s city or anyone’s anything, but when you have millions
      of dollars……I mean…

      • sportsfan18 - Jul 14, 2014 at 10:31 PM

        If you’re an American and live here, they’re all our cities.

        Nothing wrong with stating facts. Crime, poverty, property values etc…

        Info is out there and facts are facts.

        One may say a fact without saying what their opinion is.

        I know the Pistons play outside of Detroit, but it’s basically Detroit.

        Detroit is worse in many ways than Cleveland based on many statistics.

        Chicago pretty bad but hey,I live in Philly so wtf…..

        i like the statement, Sports. its in the eye of the beholder. lots of teams can be ragged on…Memphis, that is a dirty city…not good. you mentioned Detroit. Sacramento is great…but boring FOR AN NBA PLAYER. Milwaukee has no glam. Utah, well is Utah. but yeah, ya get the point. i’m sure if Lebron brings a title to Cleveland, it will lose a lot of that bad rep…at least sports-wise…

    • antistratfordian - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:15 PM

      Yeah, well it’s Cleveland. Joakim Noah wasn’t joking.

      But LeBron knows that. And he still went there to try to win the city a ring.

      • brianjoates - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:27 PM

        He better be really good at the claw machine, rings/Larry’s are not in the forecast for Cleveland.

      • antistratfordian - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:33 PM

        Well he already has everything he needs there. They’re just young.

        Could you imagine what that team would look like if Bennett turned out to be pretty good?

        Irving and LeBron are already really good. I think Wiggins is going to be really good. Throw in Bennett?

        Could be like the 80s Lakers with Magic, Kareem and Worthy all being #1 picks and dominating.

      • loungefly74 - Jul 15, 2014 at 8:50 AM

        winning a title will change some of the perception of that hungry city. I hope Lebron and Cavs do it…

    • antistratfordian - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:16 PM

      BUT. It might be different now for guys like Miller and Allen – since they’re a lot closer now than they were in 2010, obviously – and they know LeBron can win now, whereas in 2010 maybe they weren’t convinced.

  7. kingperk123 - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:30 PM

    Cleveland or Huston but how was his friendship with James??

  8. seasickcecil - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:33 PM

    Strange. The republicans liked the city so much the gave it the 2016 Republican National Convention.

    • therealhtj - Jul 14, 2014 at 10:09 PM

      Because every other state pretty much has it’s mind made up who they’re voting for long before the election.

    • antistratfordian - Jul 14, 2014 at 11:17 PM

      Gotta win Ohio.

  9. sisisisisisisi - Jul 14, 2014 at 9:46 PM

    The Mavs has a 2.7 million-dollar exception left, they probably prefer Miller over Mo Williams, we”ll see if Miller will accept that.

    Someone brought up the whole city thing again. Mike Miller is from Mitchell,South Dakota. I was stationed in SD for quite a few years. Nice slow pace,good fishing and hunting,but when it hit -65, I wanted to be anywhere but Rapid City. I’m sure that dude can take a 12 degree day in Cleveland.

    • bkbell3 - Jul 15, 2014 at 1:12 AM

      Damn, at -65 degrees body parts start falling

      • campcouch - Jul 15, 2014 at 1:20 AM

        When I saw my breath freeze and fall to the ground and hydraulic fluid turn to slush, I asked the guy next to me if this happened a lot. He couldn’t reply because his tears had frozen his eyes shut and he was busy flinging warm coffee onto his face hahahaha
