Mike Miller Gets South Dakota Shout From Lebron James at White House
The Miami Heat made their championship visit to the White House on Monday. Lebron James spoke for the media and presented President Obama with a #44 Heat jersey.
While Lebron was a little in awe of being at the White House and named off the states the players were from. Mike Miller, not wanting his home state to get left out, reminded him from the back row that he was from the 605. This got a laugh from the crowd, including the President.
Miller is the only player in the NBA from South Dakota. He’s also one of only three who graduated high school in South Dakota and played in the NBA. The others were Eric Piatkowski of Rapid City and Jared Reiner of Tripp.
