The Wizards took advantage of coach Erik Spoelstra resting LeBron James and Chris Bosh and the Wizards walked away with a 114-93 win Monday night, still secure in their 6-seed. One play stood out in the second quarter: Andre Miller used his Spidey-sense to recognize that Bradley Beal was taking off in transition immediately after the Heat shot the ball. Read More »

Andre Miller Says He Was “Made Out” As “The Villain” After Departing Denver

Andre Miller

When grizzled veteran Andre Miller was dealt to the Washington Wizards as part of a three-team trade last month it was in large part because of a falling out between the Nuggets, specifically coach Brian Shaw, and Miller after a post-game tirade in the locker-room. But as Miller tells Marc J. Spears at Yahoo Sports, he was “made out to be the bad guy, the villain…” Read More »

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” – Michael Jordan

There is an important lesson in that quote: physical skills get a player so far, but the mental aspect of the game takes the player to the finish line and beyond. Basketball IQ cannot be measured, and it doesn’t show up in a stat sheet. Yet the value of a player’s basketball IQ is endless and is the most powerful intangible in basketball. Read More »

Taj Gibson Over Andre Miller

Let’s establish this first: the NBA isn’t always given its fair due in regards to tough athletes. In an era where flopping has become such a frequent occurrence that fines have been instituted to eradicate them completely, the NBA’s reputation is slowly gaining traction again. Plays like Chris Bosh flopping like a sack of soggy potatoes after a Carlos Boozer post move, or Manu Ginobili flailing through the paint to draw imaginary fouls are indeed terrible, but could start dwindling now that players’ pockets are being attacked.

Andre Miller Is A Playoff Hero; Deron Williams Is A Monster; Insane Jordan Player Exclusives

Andre Miller

In the battle of the game’s best jerseys, it’s funny that old man Andre Miller is using the same tactics to embarrass people in the NBA that the old, fat dude with the nasty back sweat is using to bust your ass at a local YMCA. Golden State/Denver was supposed to be crazy — uptempo and out of control — and instead, their Game 1 developed into a back-n-forth mud bath. Read More »

The star of the night might’ve been the random ice cream guy (more on this later), but the theme of the night had to be based around the Denver Nuggets. Even up until this point — which is now 13 wins in a row for them — no one (and that’s including our Dime readers) believed this team was legit.
