Too many of today’s players lack a memorable tag. We at SLAM find this unacceptable; now we’re doing something about it. Each month, we bring you a player whose skills demand something more memorable than a shortened version of their name—and that’s where you come in.
This month, your subject is Mike Miller. Mike’s been the brunt of a lot of jokes from our online readership, mainly for his hair, but let us not overlook his ability: last year’s output included a Walt Williams-esque 19 ppg, 5 rpg and 4 apg. Like him or not, Mike deserves a nickname to match his play.
Whoever comes up with the best nickname will be blessed with a prize and get their name in Trash Talk next month.
