    I love Andre Miller. I remember a Big Monday game @ the Huntsman Center when the Utes squared off against Fresno State.

    FSU had a tough guy point guard in Chris Herren, who was getting all the attention going in to the 10pm game.

    Andre came out and was sensational! Him and the Utes ripped the Bulldogs, Miller left the court with a standing ovation, while Herren could not get out of the stadium fast enough, walking off the court with a towel on his head.

    Herren had a cup of coffee in the league, while Andre is still a starting pg, 12 years later.

    Class act and a class man. Would love to see him coach the Utes or the Jazz one day.

    When making the argument who the best Ute basketball player ever is (which also means best college basketball player ever in the state of Utah)It will always end with Andre Miller. There's to many big names of great former Utes to list here. But in Andres career as a Ute he went to the sweet 16 (3 times), elite 8 (2 times), Final 4 (once) and National Championship game (once). Nobody has that resume in the state of Utah. On a side note they won the conference championship 4 times also. Stats are nice. Winning is far better. His NBA career is validating my comments. On top of all of that, Andre is a humble and cool person.

    I remember watching Andre torch Long Beach State at the Pyramid. He had made a brilliant play and I commented to a guy next to me--"That--is an All-American." Three or four LBS fans grumbled and turned around and said, "no, he isn't," and "Get real,--he's no All-American." Well, Andre went on to rip them to pieces and every time he scored--I couldn't help myself--I said, "Noooo, I guess he's not really an All-American, is he?" The LBS fans were ready to kill me by the end of the game--but I smiled and nodded, gave a little wink and pointed at the scoreboard.

    Andre and the Utes had destroyed them.

    "Gents. Tell your grandkids you got to see an All-American play today---good afternoon."

    Sigh. Thanks for the memories, Andre!

    I think Andre is the greatest success story to come out of Utah including all schools. He doesn't whine like one player
    Danny Ainge did while playing for the tds. He got a degree while in school and lead his team to the ncaa finals only
    losing to Kentucy in the finals.

    Through this year, Andre Miller has earned $73,785,973 during his NBA career. I heard from a friend that he still wears sweats with holes in them and is very grounded and loves to serve the youth and his community. That is one Ute that has made his school proud. Keep up the good work.

    Andre Miller is a class act. He was one of my favorites to watch up at the Huntsman Center. An amazing college player with a solid professional career. I hope he continues to find success.
