For anyone who is struggling to come to terms with aging, it will not do anything to ease their anxiety. Brandon Miller, a scheduled top-3 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft, made a revelation that has shocked some. During a pre-draft press conference on Wednesday, Miller was asked everyone’s favorite basketball question: Who’s the GOAT? Michael Jordan or LeBron James? Miller, who turns 21 in November, took a very different route, telling the reporter his goat was PaulGeorge.
Yes, you heard him right. Brandon Miller’s GOAT is PG-13. This certainly sounds strange, but the child is 20 years old. Despite also growing up with LeBron James as a kid, Miller went to the trouble of declaring what he thought George was the GOAT. That’s a lonely link.
Goats and favorite players are different animals
In fact, PG sounds like Miller’s favorite gamer, and that’s okay. But it’s okay to differentiate between favorites and greatest. Reggie Miller and Gary Payton were my favorite players as a kid, but I wouldn’t exactly call either of them the GOAT of the NBA. But hey, to each his own.
One of Miller’s top NBA comparisons was with George. They have very similar frames and games. Miller probably modeled his game on PG growing up and George is the best in his opinion. Because Miller is so young, he will likely be adopted by most considering he was born in 2002. He has the right to choose his own GOAT even if the general basketball world disagrees.
Depending on where Miller ends up, he could have a PG career, if not a better one. Fitness is what counts, especially when joining the club. Miller will likely end up in Charlotte (which appears to be the case). Favorite for Miller’s draft) or Portland to start his NBA journey. Unless the Blazers exit third place, that’s what’s at stake for Miller.
