Good evening ladies and gentlemen. The Kentucky Derby is over, your mint-julep buzz is wearing off, and its starting to sink in that the $50 you foolishly bet on the horse in gate one is gone forever. With the end of the Derby comes the inevitable talk of whether the winner will have a shot at the Triple Crown, the most impressive achievement in all of horse racing. The Triple Crown is a rarity, as horse racing fans haven’t seen it happen since Affirmed did it back in 1978. Maybe it will happen this year, but I wouldn’t bet on it. However, if you need to make back the money you lost at the track today, I think a wiser bet would be on the possibility of Darius Miller winning the basketball “Triple Crown”.
Having already won a state championship and a national championship, Darius Miller is only missing a NBA championship to complete his crown. With the NBA draft just around the corner, Miller is projected as an early second round pick, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he sneaks into the late first round which would land him on a championship contending team (Heat please!) At 6’7″ with the ability to play multiple positions, Miller is a proven winner who has shown that he will do anything it takes (most notably coming off the bench this year) to win. I think Darius Miller has a real chance to contribute to a playoff team immediately.
Do you think Darius Miller will complete his Triple Crown? Which team would you like to see him play for in the NBA? Tell me what you think in the comments.
