In the words of the great Phil Chenier, “No, he didn’t.”
After grabbing a defensive rebound following a missed jump shot from Mario Chalmers, Andre Miller didn’t hesitate to throw what seemed like an impossible pass across the entire court, eventually getting to Bradley Beal for the easy finish.
Miller has been a godsend for the Wizards, who’ve struggled to get stability from their bench all season long. John Wall is leading the NBA in total assists, but Andre Miller has displayed an uncanny ability to find his teammates.
Although he’s not the quickest player in the league, Miller’s court vision and ability to throw that ridiculous outlet pass has gotten the Wizards some easy baskets in transition, which is something I honestly didn’t expect from him after Washington acquired him from the Denver Nuggets, especially since he’s been regarded as a slow, methodical point guard.
That outlet pass from Andre Miller had Bradley Beal contemplating whether or not he should try out for the Washington Redskins next year, but it also didn’t stop Twitter from reacting accordingly.
Andre Miller just made a legit full-court pass. One of the best I've ever seen.

If the Skins trade Kirk Cousins might be worth bringing in Andre Miller for a tryout #WizardsTalk

Miller has been one of the best backup point guards in the NBA this season, and I have no doubt that he’ll continue to help the team as they look to compete in the NBA Playoffs for the first time since 2008. It’s no secret that veteran additions have helped Washington achieve their goal of making the postseason, but Andre Miller has really turned out to be a great get for the Wizards.
A 38-year old point guard making SportsCenter worthy plays on a game-to-game basis? That’s Andre Miller.
