AGE APPROPRIATE

Ex-Ute Andre Miller played in 239 consecutive NBA games. So it makes sense he wasn’t happy with Denver coach Brian Shaw for benching him the entire 48 minutes, last week against Philadelphia.

A verbal exchange resulted in Miller’s two-game suspension, though it was later lifted.

Miller has had a fine NBA career, no question. But at age 37, you have to wonder how he plans to protest the next time he gets benched.

What can he do, refuse to take his meds?
