Video: Elton Brand, Andre Miller Discuss NBA-Caliber Open Runs at UCLA

Miller: “It’s kind of like an NBA game, somewhat.”

All summer long most of the talk revolving around UCLA has been about Baron Davis, Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook and others enrolling in classes there. Well, turns out some other terrific NBA players—Ron Artest, Elton Brand, Andre Miller, etc.— have been visiting Westwood for basketball reasons. The video above contains some footage of NBA-caliber open runs, plus interviews with Artest, Brand and Miller about what makes games at UCLA so special.

    I hope Blake Griffin shows up so he can kick Andre Miller’s @$$ for that cheap shot verbally and physically last season. Beat down at UcLA.

    It was cheap, but it was in retaliation for Griffin pushing Miller in the back twice before that. So can anyone walk into these runs? Are they really “open”?

    “There’s no one to tape ankles *laughs*” – yes, LOL, good one Elton!

    its good to see some of the guys from this past draft getting some hours in against some more experinced guys.

    Griffin deserved that push. He’s a rookie getting veteran allstar calls. He was shoving Dre under the hoop and didn’t get called for it so the veteran did what any vet would do and shoved his a$$ back. That’s BASKETBALL!

    they are open, but if your not a UCLA student, or recognizable basketball talent the chances of getting picked up are pretty slim.

    So as long as you’re a student you can play??

    Well there has to be atleast 1 UCLA student in each game. So if your a student and are willing to wait for next then yeah

    Great editing. Artest: “seeing what’s gonna work and what’s not gonna work” as he’s getting stripped in the video. Love it.

  • Will Lee

    i will enroll in UCLA just for that opportunity.

  • The Big Cheese

    Second Bimmer. My thoughts exactly, plus they end the video a moment later as if Ron Ron just ruined everything…again.
