Good luck and never give up, Miller said. Tell him, ‘You’re an inspiration to me and I have followed you since you honored me.’ I look at the sneakers that he gave me every day to give me motivation throughout the day. And he’s just a really kind person and every time I watch him it makes me happy. So, something like that. Just say, like, ‘Thank you for everything.’
He’s an inspiration, and he changed my life. Yeah, he changed my life, like, forever.
The Cavs had just lost to the Golden State Warriors on their home floor to fall down 3-1 in the 2016 NBA Finals. No team in NBA history had ever come back from that type of deficit with a championship on the line. And Cleveland would need to make that comeback against a Warriors team that won a record 73 games in the regular season.
Astromech who always does the right thing. Dehousing assists at an extremely high level. Very versatile. Loyal friend and co-pilot. Teammates love him. Gets his message across. Aced the Wonderlic.
Looks the part. Dangerous playmaker, but a bit of an enigma. Strong pedigree; father also bounty hunted professionally. Rocket-packs a punch, but he doesn’t always think well on his feet.
Incredible size at 16 feet tall. Has long arms; uses wingspan to swat down passes and terrorize Jedis. Makes noise. Eats a lot of stuff.
Mahomes as a rookie sat behind Alex Smith throughout the 2017 season as planned. The youngster was able to start the Chiefs’ season finale against the Broncos in a meaningless game with Kansas City’s playoff positioning already wrapped up, and the team apparently liked what it saw from that game and the practice field throughout the year. The Chiefs in the offseason shipped Smith to the Redskins in a trade, putting all their faith in Mahomes as their starter for 2018 and beyond.
