"Andre Miller is good enough to win a game in a playoff series [or] make someone else good enough to win the game," Karl said. "He understands how valuable a bench is, how to get a Martell Webster or Bradley Beal into the game. He has a way of making an offense play at a high, high level — for a period of time. He's still a bench player. But I'm a big believer that the surprise player, the wild card, can have a huge impact in the playoffs."
"Andre is a competitor and when he thinks they're taking something away from him unfairly, he will speak his mind," said former Nuggets coach George Karl, who was fired last June after nine seasons in Denver and is now an ESPN analyst. "He's a winner, a leader. Is he perfect? No. But my personal opinion is Andre deserved better treatment than he got in Denver."
