Miller led all shooting guards in true shooting percentage (calculates what a player’s shooting percentage would be if we accounted for free throws and 3-pointers), assist ratio and rebound ratio.
Although he is by no means a lockdown defender, he is a smart, instinctive help defender. The Heat have enough strong perimeter defenders that Miller wouldn't have to guard an opposing team's top players.
Mike is a great fit for this Heat team not just because he can shoot.
He is a complete basketball player. His versatility will seamlessly incorporate into the Heat's plans.
Whether he's playing point, shooting guard, or forward, he has a unique skill set that would greatly benefit any type of team. The fact that he has never played on a great team before makes his return all the more appealing.
A guy this skilled thrown into the fire with superstars like LeBron, Wade and Bosh is going to be a dynamic combination. In fact, he will be as good as any sixth man in basketball upon his return.
