Mike Miller contemplated retirement this past summer as he battled a bulging disc in his back. The injury had him hunched over more often than not, and it understandably had him questioning his future. However, Miller is feeling better and wants to keep playing.
Miller told Chris Tommason of Fox Sports Florida that he wants to play at least two more seasons. Miller has been far from playing a full game's minutes, but at least he's playing. And at least he's healthy.
“I feel better than I've felt in five years. I don’t know what it is,’’ Miller said. “I've dealt with something every year for the last four. So, knock on wood, I feel great, I feel real good.’’Miller is 35 years old and has played 13 seasons in the NBA. He has averaged 12.7 points per game and 4.9 assists per game with five different teams. With the Heat so far this season, Miller is averaging just 3.4 points per game, but he has seen limited action.
Miller has proven to be a solid role player with the Heat. Despite his injuries through last season, he still contributed to the Heat's championship run.
