Mike Miller tried a 3-pointer as he headed off the practice floor Sunday and didn't mind that it missed badly.
For the Miami Heat forward, just being back on the floor is enough these days.
After two injury-filled seasons, Miller insists he's feeling better and stronger these days, as the reigning NBA champion Heat settle into the opening days of training camp. He still walks slightly hunched, partly because of ongoing back issues, and his stride maybe isn't as smooth as it once was. Still, Miller is out there, which is more than some people expected after seeing him labor a few months ago.
''It's a testimony of him doing the rehab that was required for him to be here and be ready for camp,'' Heat forward and NBA MVP LeBron James said Sunday. ''Mike is a warrior. We know that. We know what he's been through the first two years he's been here. He's doing more than I expected at this point. He's out here; he's ready. He's looking good, and that's good for him.''
Good for the Heat,...
