No one was snapping pics though, wish some were on the internet. Their crew probably wouldn't have allowed it anyway. This was well before phones on cameras.
yeah, man, P actually got cut from an NBA team pre-season.
During the strike-shortened 1998-99 season, Miller was a member of the Charlotte Hornets during training camp but didn't make the regular-season roster. During the 1999-2000 season, he once scored eight points in an exhibition game against the Vancouver Grizzlies while playing for the Toronto Raptors and continually packed arenas. The Raptors, however, waived Miller just before the season began. He has also played with Fort Wayne of the CBA and San Diego of the IBL.
