ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Andre Miller is one of the craftiest players in the NBA, a guy who gets by almost completely on guile instead of athleticism, on experience instead of ability. Which doesn’t mean he’s not a great athlete — he must be if he’s going to battle other elite basketball players each night. But maybe he’s just good at getting by without having to dunk to score buckets.
Which brings us to last night, where everything lined up perfectly: A shot missed and the rebound bounced forward, just as Miller cut down the lane. The ball flew right into Miller’s path, and he soared through the air for what looked to be a gorgeous put-back dunk.
Instead, we got us a Shaqtin’ moment…
