Mike Miller returns to Memphis tonight

Tonight will be the first time that Miller will play at FedEx Forum since being traded this past off-season for O.J. Mayo. Memphis received a good player in Mayo who has the potential to be a great All-Star in this league for years to come. But Memphis lost a good player and a great charitable person in Mike Miller. I would encourage all Memphis fans to show up for tonight's game and give Mike Miller a warm reception home. As the Grizzlies always say, "Tickets are still available for tonight's game."

Below is a link to a video where he answers the following question. Why are you giving $1 million to help the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD?

Here is a list of some of the beneficiaries of the Mike Miller Foundation

M33M BALLERS (Memphis AAU Basketball)
SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOLERS (South Dakota AAU Basketball)
St. Jude Childrens Hospital

This past summer, he donated $200,000 to the St. Jude Childrens Hospital. It is the largest single donation by a Grizzlies player. Here is a link to a video of the donation.

We just want to thank Mike Miller for his contributions to children and wish him well.

  1. Miller is one of the few "Champion" level athletes we've had play in Memphis. Although Florida came up short and obviously Grizzlies never went far in playoffs - he is undisputed world class player in high school and just barely missed playing on the greatest team of all time in Beijing 2008.
