Brandon Miller hasn’t even played an official regular season game for the Charlotte Hornets but he has already gained tons of attention.
After going as the second pick in last month’s draft, people have talked about Miller as a potential franchise-leading player.
And now Miller is going to make even more fans because he is going to appear in an episode of Paul George’s podcast.
Legion Hoops is reporting that George and Miller will sit down together, presumably for an episode of George’s popular Podcast P show.

They will have plenty to talk about.
Not only will George surely question Miller about the entire process of being drafted and making a new home in Charlotte, but he will also ask him about some very controversial and talked-about comments the rookie recently made.
Last month, Miller commented on who he considers the greatest basketball player of all time.
“I actually don’t think LeBron is the GOAT of basketball,” Miller said to the press, according to Sports Illustrated.
“My GOAT of basketball is Paul George. I grew up watching him, so it’s never just LeBron.”
At the time, the comments set off a firestorm online and people began to debate his comment endlessly.
It is likely that George and Miller will touch upon Miller’s statement and so much more.
Miller got off to somewhat of a rocky start in the NBA Summer League but ultimately proved that he is a special rookie.
After scoring 26 points against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, the Hornets announced that he wouldn’t play in the last two remaining games of Summer League.
Charlotte had seen enough from the young player and elected to let him take it easy for the rest of the offseason.
Of course, he won’t take it totally easy: Miller will be practicing a lot and preparing for the regular season tip-off in October.
George and Miller will definitely talk about that a lot in this upcoming episode.NEXT: The Hornets Had Another First-Round Pick Step Up Tuesday Night
