Miller is one of those rare players who makes those around him better. He's got good instincts for the game, passes well from the forward position and is unselfish. You might even say Miller is unselfish to a fault. Several times in some of Florida's bigger games during Miller's sophomore season, he seemed to hide for extended periods, not even looking for his shot. He'll have to be more assertive in the pros, but he has the tools to do so. He's a better-than-average perimeter shooter, but he can also take the ball to the basket. Known since his high school days as "Skinny," Miller will have to get stronger to withstand the pounding he'll take in the NBA. Miller was a first-team All-SEC pick by the league's coaches.
