Mike Miller has always been a strong Nikola Jokic advocate. but did he ever see this happening? Did he see this level of greatness coming? “I’m not going to sound like I’m crazy and say that I thought he’d be a two-time MVP and be on this stage like this. But I did. I really did,” Miller told DNVR after the Nuggets’ Game 3 win in Miami. “That’s just how good he was and how good he is.”
“He hasn’t changed much, to be honest,” Miller told DNVR about Jokic. “The game’s still slow for him. He still makes everyone around him better, and he goes and gets what he wants. He’s just an impossible guard. He’s a similar player to the guy he was back then. But now he’s just in better shape. He was always so skilled. Unbelievable size. Playmaking. Scorer. Touch has always been great. Just a great basketball player.”
Miller, whose second season in Denver in 2016-17 coincided with Jamal Murray’s rookie year, remembers his initial impression of the Blue Arrow too. “Jamal has taken huge strides,” Miller told DNVR. “He was always a guy that believed in himself. The moment was never too big, and he’s showing that here.”
Katy Winge: Michael Porter Jr on his shooting: “I wouldn’t even say I’m not feeling confident in my shot, I’m feeling pressure, anything like that. I’m just missing, you know what I mean? Sometimes the ball just doesn’t go in. I think a lot of shots have been right there, I’ve just missed.”
