Mike Miller Chooses the Cavs Over the Nuggets

In the end, it looks like the chance to re-team with LeBron James was too much for Mike Miller to pass up.

According to multiple reports breaking across Twitter, Miller has decided to sign a multi-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, turning down what many experts believed was a richer deal from Denver:

 

 

Honestly, I’m not too torn up about Miller’s decision. I like him as a player and respect what he could have brought to the team in terms of three-point shooting. But he’s nearing the end of his career and hasn’t proven himself to be the most durable player in the league. With the addition of Arron Afflalo and signs of three-point ability from Gary Harris in the first Summer League game, I think the team might be closer to addressing their needs in that category than most fans think.

Still, it stings a bit that the Nuggets seem to be making plays for free agents, but not being able to close the deals. You can’t blame a player for choosing to hitch his wagon to James, but at some point the Nuggets have to figure out what it’s going to take to attract players to the Mile High City or they’ll never be able step up and become one of the league’s top-tier teams.
