Miller Heading Home For Fundraiser

Miller Heading Home For Fundraiser
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks for Mitchell native Mike Miller.

After capturing his 1st NBA title, Miller was recently on stage at the ESPY's accepting the award for Best Team on behalf of the Heat. Now this weekend Miller will be back home.

It took 12 seasons for Mike Miller to capture his elusive first championship.
Now at age 32, the Mitchell native is enjoying the spotlight.

"Everything is a little extra special right now being a champion and that's what we work hard for and being able to share that with the people that supported me since I was young and now that I'm a champion it hasn't changed who I am, but its changed some situations and has been an eye opener for us," Mike Miller said.

Miller will be back in his home state this weekend hosting his annual Celebrity Blackjack Tournament on Friday July 20th at Icon Lounge in Sioux Falls.

As one of the most successful athletes ever to come out of South Dakota, Miller always looks forward to the chance to repay the community for decades of support.

"The state has been completely behind me. A lot of my motivation to get better every summer, every year comes from them and I owe a lot to the state of South Dakota and these are my opportunities to try and give back," Miller said.

And as he continues to battle injuries questions have surfaced on whether or not Miller will go out on top and retire a champion, but the Heat sharpshooter isn't ready to cross that bridge just yet.

"Everything's getting better. Just a little rest, taking it easy, going step by step seeing doctors along the way and then making the best decision for me and my family and the team and check off those boxes as we go," Miller said.
