Dropping Dimes Mock Draft 2007- Round 5, Pick 6 - Mike Miller

Mike Miller

The Fig Cap: Yeah, no wonder Four Twenty wanted to write about Mikey.

GUEST BLOGGER: Our number one fan, Four Twenty.  How much does he love Dropping Dimes?  We’re official sponsors of his softball team in the Great Northwest… yes, and the love is reciprocal.

He won’t make it, he misses everything!  He made it! Hey Mikey!

Like Life cereal, don’t knock it til you try it.  At one point last season Miller was ranked #5 in the Yahoo game, and deservedly so.  Snagging Miller this late in the game is an absolute steal, and like Kevin Bacon in “Animal House,” I’ll say “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

Round 5, Pick 6: Mike Miller, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies

There are only a handful of players that will give you 2.9 bombs per game, while providing help in several other categories.  The knee tendonitis is a concern, but whether it’s H2H or ROTO, Miller will help your team. Compared to the other big bombers from last year, Ray Allen (.438 FG%) and Agent Zero (.418 FG%), Miller’s .460 FG% is a nice bonus.  He works the glass better than both (5.4 rpg) and drops dimes at a decent clip (4.3 apg)... Miller also has the potential to blow up in this category from time to time, including a 14 assist game last year.  In a H2H match-up, that’s money! Miller will give you roughly 18.5 ppg, which doesn’t compare to the other big bombers, but this is the 5TH ROUND, and 18.5 ppg is solid this late, and it’s better than some of the other quality 5th rounders taken so far, Hinrich (16.8 ppg), and Sheed (12.3 ppg) to name a few.

Looking at the rest of Miller’s numbers for the 2006/07 season: .793 FT% , 18.5 ppg, 0.8 spg, 0.3 bpg, and 2.6 TO.

There are no real weakness there, so if Miller is available with your 5th round pick, “Don’t worry, be happy” and pull that trigger!
