Apart from James' face-to-face meeting with Allen, several other members of the Cavs have kept in contact with the shooting guard this season -- James Jones and Mike Miller, who were also Allen's teammates in Miami, as well as associate head coach Tyronn Lue, who was an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics when Allen played there.

James sounds as though he could return even sooner than the Jan. 15 target date the Cavaliers set for him on New Year's Day. "LeBron's more committed than I've ever seen him. That's all I need to know," said Mike Miller, who played with James for three seasons in Miami and signed as a free agent to rejoin him in Cleveland. Cleveland Plain Dealer

On Sunday, the Cavs had fans at the Quicken Loans Arena vote for their favorite Miller hairstyle. Mullet Mike was getting no respect as the first few votes rolled in, which I personally think is an atrocity. Larry Brown Sports

Mike Miller was held out of Saturday's Cavaliers practice with a sprained right ankle he sustained in Friday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Miller played on the ankle after rolling it, so it isn't being viewed as a significant injury. The sharpshooter was 7-of-8 from 3-point range in his first start and first game back from a concussion.

Mike Miller made his coach look like a genius Friday night. Miller, showing little rust from missing seven games with a concussion, scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers in his first start of the season, and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 95-91. Cavaliers coach David Blatt's decision to start Miller, who missed one 3-pointer in eight attempts and played 33 minutes, paid off in a major way. "When the fire is hot, you want to let it burn," Blatt said. "It was burning tonight." ESPN.com

When he was recovering from his concussion, he would put in extra hours of conditioning and shooting. He didn't want to just get back on the court. He wanted to be a force. It's another reason why his teammates adore him. "What makes me feel good is seeing my teammates succeed," James said of Miller. Cleveland Plain Dealer

More than a decade later, Miller is no longer the slashing playmaker of his NBA youth. He’s now the smooth-shooting veteran on the revamped Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s a role he’s seemingly been preparing for his entire career: to be there at the right moment for the right shot or the right words. Wherever Miller has played, he has been a friend to the stars — and the scrubs, executives, coaches, and everyone in between. “He has the unique experience of playing in every situation,” said James Jones, a fellow Heat-to-Cavaliers transplant. “He’s been on rebuilding teams. He’s been on championship teams. He’s been on contending teams. He’s been a starter. He’s been the sixth man. He’s been out of the rotation. He’s been injured. He’s bounced back and came back. Every player in this league can relate to him on some level. That’s tough to find because you find that a lot of guys spend most of their time on the extremes. They’re either major rotation guys [who] get a lot of opportunities or they’re fringe guys that are grinding every day to maintain a position in the league.” Grantland
