Quincy Miller

What a waste of talent...Quincy Miller made such a dumb move coming out of Baylor after one season...He could've been a superstar for them this season...Instead getting splinters on the Nugget's bench and making stints in and out of the D-League...smh

I also think he made the wrong decision in coming out early, but he's not a waste of talent just yet, wait 5 more years until you can call him that or until you'll be proven wrong.

The only bad thing about it

The only bad thing about it is he had actually committed to stay for another year and bailed out last minute. If only he had stayed, he'd be a lock in the lottery this year (and would have been drafted by a team that would actually let him play). If it was about money, he also would have gotten a bigger contract as a lottery pick if he only waited one more year.

I'm sure he's looking back at it now and regretting leaving early.

I think he was a guy who

I think he was a guy who looked really freaking good against high school kids, and like a pretty solid pro prospect against NCAA level competition. I don't think he'd be top 10 if he stayed another year. He'd probably be a little higher because he'd probably be a little stronger and more experienced, but I don't think he'd be considered any higher than say, 25.

I think best case, Miller will end up a lot like Corey Brewer and many other tall thin shooters. There is a spot in the NBA for Quincey, but it's stretching defenses and creating mis matches with 2nd units. Not making All-Star teams or dropping 15- 20 ppg like many envisioned him doing during his prep days.

I take that back; it's

I take that back; it's probably a stretch to say he'd be a lock in the lottery, but I think he could have been really good as the go-to guy on Baylor this year.

Miller

Totally agree, some of these dudes believe they can walk into the NBA and start playing? True, Miller has some talent and good size for the NBA, but he should've stayed at least three years if not all four.

I think Quincy Miller's

I think Quincy Miller's mistake was not fully allowing the acl injury to heal, he took the Iman Shumpert route rather than the Derrick Rose route. That one decision brought upon so many other bad decisions. Such as leaving early. If he misses the first half of the year or maybe his freshman season, then he doesn't enter the draft most likely. Or maybe he could have gotten some of his athleticism and quickness back and been better as a freshman last year. Not saying he was an athlete like his team mate Deuce Bello, but he was just like Durant is to Westbrook in terms of athleticism.

whoa! whoa! hold up! wait

whoa! whoa! hold up! wait just a minute. i'm not saying quincy miller will be successful or not, but how bout we wait and see. wake me up year three at least. he's on arguably the deepest team in the league in the nuggets where there is a crowd at his position at the moment. maybe he will figure it out someday and maybe he won't.

See.

I don't think you guys see the point of view of Miller. This is a KID who tore his ACL and was worried about his career. And i don't know the facts, but those surgeries are expensive and maybe he couldn't afford to have the surgery in high school and was scared he wouldn't get the opportunity to play in the NBA, so he took some money, better medical staff, and got into the NBA. Is that really a bad decision?

You're right, the 20 year old

You're right, the 20 year old NBA player is such a waste. I mean, he's clearly at the end of his career and has accomplished nothing. Might as well go back and earn his degree, right?

I think Quincy miller

I think Quincy miller probably took the wrong route, but to everyone there is always a positive and a negative.For example Baylor has Pierre Jackson running point and throwing up as much shots as anyone while playing with Isaiah Austin ,one of the best scoring big men in the country,and there is only one ball to share in a game.As for a positive look at joining the Nuggets, it seems as if everyone gets a chance on that team to become something, and watching Quincy Miller play at Baylor he looked pretty slow,so playing with the Nugs up tempo speed and altitude might help him out.Or maybe he just looked slow because of his injury and not playing as much on the Nuggets his first might be a great thing for his future of his career ,because. ACL takes a long time to fully heal.

I still have high hopes for

I still have high hopes for Quincy, but Im hoping he doesn't end up like Demarr Johnson who he reminds me of and left college too early much like Quincy.

Based on his performance in

Based on his performance in the D-League, Miller would not have been a lottery pick. Not even close. How do you figure after he shot under 40 percent in the D-League and still not regained his pre-ACL tear athleticism that he would've tore things up at Baylor and be a lottery pick?
