Andrew R. Tonry of Portland Roundball Society penned an interesting article about Andre Miller’s 617 straight games, best among active players.
Apparently, Miller does very little keep that streak going. He doesn’t work out in the offseason, and he doesn’t eat right.
He’s just lucky or blessed or something – except:
Against the Pistons in November, Miller twisted both ankles. The pain was enough to leave him writhing around on the court.
Not only did the Pistons have to lead the ankle injuries this year, the bad juju was so great, it engulfed their opponents. I’m pretty sure Will Bynum just rolled another ankle getting out bed today.
