Washington Wizards point guard Andre Miller has a sterling reputation as a floor leader, a crafty veteran who knows how to manipulate defenses and make the right passes to the right guys at the right times. What the 38-year-old Miller definitely doesn’t have is above-average athleticism. He survives via the old-man game and its various tricks. Nothing about Miller is overwhelming — he just finds a way to make things work.
That profile means that it’s usually a bad idea when Miller does anything that requires little more than athleticism — like, say, following a missed shot with a dunk attempt on the rebound. But that’s exactly what he did in the second quarter of Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The results were predictably hilarious:
I’d wish Miller better luck next time, but there might not be a next time. Nor should there be.
