Andre Miller Addresses the Haters

‘Dre on his critics: “This time, his targets are the critics who are underwhelmed with Portland’s decision to sign Miller to a 3-year contract that could be worth as much as $21 million. ‘I don’t really care what they think,’ Miller said. ‘They probably didn’t want me in Philadelphia when I got moved there and there was no expectations when I got traded for Allen Iverson, so I mean, I went into that situation and pretty much proved the critics wrong. I helped the team get to the playoffs and definitely could have helped the team get to the second round – we were close to getting to the second round for 2 years.’”

    Aim high, Andre!

    Derrick Rose crossed him up so bad, he made him fall into another conference.

    Dre must have gone the Steve Nash/Phoenix Suns school of winning.

    Good ones Eboy and Ken.
    But, I think Miller is a vast improvement over Steve Blake, who hasn’t been the same since stopped playing alongside a certain undersized two guard.

    I’m not a hater but I still don’t know why people talk so much, just produce and I’ll decide once I see the results.

    mmm, i know you like ai but blake enjoyed his best season in the league last year. miller is still a massive upgrade though. i just wish portland would let some guys go. you can’t bring blake, webster, rudy, outlaw and przbylla, bayless off the bench.

    We can forget about Dre (2009) Just Blazing. Verejao never addressed his critics, but like its going to be a real reveal. He’ll basically just say “Dollar dolla bill ya’ll!” in Portuguese and go buy the Jesus statue in Brazil and change the head to his mop top.

    This is a good move by Portland, big upgrade, but I don’t know how it will translate to wins.. I don’t see Portland as a top 3 team in the West. Should help the development of Greg Oden though, getting to practice rebounding Dre’s bricks..

  • chazz michael michael

    c’mon… yeah Dre isn’t the best but he isn’t so bad he has to get dogged on. With Philly, he did help get them to the playoffs and almost to the second round. Andre Iguadola couldn’t have done that himself.

    Im diggin the move to portland… adds a proven PG who can use strength to create mismatches… solid defender…. dont worry bout the shootin, thats what my boy BROY’s for.

  • S. Trotter

    Honeslty I’ve never really heard much the critics get down on Miller. I’ve seen things like “he could improve his shooting”, but that has been the extent of it. I think the critics were down on Portland for the amount they spent. I think he is taking it as an attack against him, which I don’t really see. I mean, there isn’t much bad to say about him except, well, he could improve his shooting.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Critics ALWAYS say some cr@p like “so and so needs to improve his shooting”. Shiiet, they said it about Demar DeRozan, but in summerleague MOST of his points came from midrange J’s.
    In other words, ‘Dre CAN knock down jumpers.

    Nate, Just Wait Until Dre Puts Up 30 Shots Against The Nuggets And Costs The Blazers A Win. And Wait Until He Goes Into Vacation Mode After His 1 Great Playoff Game. Did You Know He’s Been Absolutely Awful In About 20 of His 27 Playoff Games? If He Gets Destroyed By Cassell And Parker When He’s Young, What’s Gonna Happen Now That He’s Old?

  • ianG

    Andre should address the gap in his game just like the gap in his chompers.
