1976 – Happy 38th birthday to retired NBA center Brad Miller (@BradMillerCBO) who spent 14 seasons in the league. By statistical standards, the two-time all-star was surprisingly one of the NBA’s best offensive players in history. According to Basketball-Reference, Miller’s .564 career true-shooting percentage is in the top 100 and his 114.2 offensive rating ranks in the top 60 all-time. In addition, he led all players in offensive rating in 2004-05.

Miller played for six teams during his NBA career, including multiple stops in Chicago. Before he returned to the Bulls for his second stint, he played 385 games with the Sacramento Kings. His career-high 38 points came on February 2, 2005, when the Kings were visiting the Golden State Warriors. He scored the final six points of the night as the Kings beat the Warriors, 111-107.
