Nuggets add key young player

July 4, 2012

Quincy Miller will be a major building block in the future of the Denver Nuggets. Coming in with a chip in his shoulder is something this young kid is used to and something he will continue to experience throughout his young NBA career. Growing up in Chicago we know this kid can handle his own on the court and can deal with some criticism on and off the court. But the NBA is not your ordinary playground, its a league full of grown man that are the most talented at what they do something Miller wasn’t recognized for until 2009 when he made his way into the AAU circuit and found his name on numerous college lists of players to recruit.

Stepping onto the scene as a sophomore Miller was ready to make a name for himself and that he did. Getting numerous national awards like SLAM MAGAZINES top prospect and being selected to the Boost Mobile Elite 24. By his Junior season Miller was ready to put up big numbers on the court and continue to make a name for himself. Drawing numerous comparisons to Kevin Durant the potential is never ending in this kid and the Denver Nuggets found a gem late in the draft.

Proving himself early at Baylor Miller went on to score 17, 17, and 20 respectively in his first games in a Bears uniform. 5 games into his first season he recorded his first double double with a 17-11 performance against Texas-Arlington. Miller was able to put up 21 points after a slump against a tough Oklahoma State team and responded with a 17 point effort as the Bears suffered their first loss of the season against future National Runner Up Kansas Jayhawks. To end the season Miller took home the Co-Freshman of the year in the Big 12 (LeBryan Nash) and Miller was the player of the year in the Big 12 by Sporting News.

Coming into this season the Nuggets aren’t expecting starting numbers from Quincy Miller but the potential in this kid is never ending and there isn’t a better coach for him to learn from then George Karl. If Miller is able to get his hands on the NBA game you could see him making an impact on this team as early as year 2. The potential is never ending.
