On the heels of tons of Andre Miller trade rumors i felt like i needed help from the Bedge community in understanding just what the heck people are thinking regarding trading Miller. Let me offer a few clafifying questions, Who is our most reliable back court player? Miller. Who is playing in top form right now? Miller, Mathews, LMA, Camby. Who makes the offense go when so often it has stalled? Miller.
We would trade him for a big man? Then what? Armon Johnson runs the point? Patty Mills? Psh! Of the above questions Roy's name should be listed every time, it is not.....Miller's is. Roy has become the poster child for "dont give players with health questions max money." Roy is a great player, WHEN HEALTHY. We all know by now, if everyone could stay healthy we are as talented as anyone......i am sick of this line of thinking. We ARE NOT healthy, have not been as a team for several years. Injuries have plagued this team and all but shut the window we thought we had at one time to make a run. So how does it make sense to trade one of the few players we have that has proven he can actually stay healthy? It doesn't.
I am curious, has anyone noticed Andre is having a phenominal year so far? Let me remind you, 27gp 27gs 13.2ppg 7.2apg 1.93spg %45fg %88FT. I'll take that all day long. Matthews and Miller make a good back court. Miller and Roy do not. Matthews is dependable Roy is not. Roy has yet to play a full 82 game season and seems to be headed towards the recycle bin. Miller just plugs along and has the aspiration to play until he is 40. Roy will be lucky to be playing until 32. Some may say Roy is younger, yes he is but i would bet that Miller is going to play more games in the next 2-3 years than Roy will.
Its a sad time for Blazer fans, our prospective "big three" we thought would take us places can't seem to get off the trainers table and into the game save for LMA. By the way, LMA is also having his best year of his career for the record. Haters gonna hate as they say. This is all a bunch of knee jerk madness if you ask me. Trading Miller would be an Epic mistake unless it returns a young elite PG, which it wont. Please people, stop the madness!!
