LeBron James likes having Mike Miller on his team. That was clear in Miami, and James made sure Miller, a Mitchell native, joined him for a second go at a championship in Cleveland in the summer. After James and Miller signed with the Cavaliers, Miller, a 14-year veteran, explained James' disappointment with the Heat. "LeBron thought it was an unnecessary change," Miller said in a release to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. James didn't like Miami's approach, which saved money against the luxury tax, to releasing Miller in summer 2013.
