"There's nothing he can do about it now except to make sure that he is aware of where his weapons are." - Nate McMillan, after Sebastian Telfair was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 2: Eastern Region

To go with the three freshman stars are a five man rotation of role players. Florida transfer Eloy Vargas is often wild and inconsistent, missing defensive rotations and greatly irritating Calipari, with little offensive talent to speak of and all the poise of Bambi in a hurricane. Yet his size and athleticism combination proves occasionally useful on both ends, particularly on the glass. Pressed into full-time service at centre, Harrellson has had a great season, earning an invite to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. He's a prolific rebounder and defensive post presence, who can make (if not create) shots around the basket, and he doesn't even take those bad straightaway threes any more. Incumbent shooting guard Jon Hood comes in and does absolutely nothing other than try to score, which occasionally he does. Liggins's evolution from a big, turnover prone point guard, in a vital, cohesive, little-things, do-it-all, rebounding, defending, smart passing, transition jumpshooting role playing small forward is almost complete. And Miller has developed into a shooter and defender, with good size, efficiency, and less mistakes than before. But despite the presence and decent production of these incumbents, Kentucky have had problems with cohesiveness and maturity. Maybe that's due to the lack of four year players.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 25th November 2017

Miller has continued his new-found shooting aggression with five double figure scoring efforts in the last six games, flanked by some rebounds and assists. After beginning the season as entirely a fantasy non-factor, Miller now has three 20+ fantasy points outings on the bounce, as well as four in his last six games overall, useful contributions for both his team and fantasy players at a tiny cost. And thankfully, for now at least, his price still represents those early season struggles, making him a steal.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 17th November 2017

Miller is available for the absolute minimum because of his very slow start to the season. Brought back from Germany to be the low cost three-and-D contributor Quincy Pondexter was never healthy enough to be, Miller barely played and barely shot to start the year, contributing barely nothing and eventually falling out of the rotation. So when he got back into it, he started being more aggressive offensively. And that has given him some low-end fantasy value. Miller has averaged 11.5 points over the last six games after having recorded only 15 points total over the first eight. No one else for the minimum fantasy price is doing that, so consider him strongly.
