Harold was the truth, period. He didn't have as successful of an NBA career as his potential suggested, but that doesn't take away from his accomplishments. Only to two-inch minded people who wish they even played XBox half as good as Miner did at the real thing, continue to disrespect him and criticize him. He was a legend and was the man in LA all through the early-mid nineties. When he was at SC he had more pub than any of the Laker/Clipper players. Kobe hadn't gotten there nor Shaq. The Lakers sucked then, the Clippers...Anyway Harold used to clown even NBA players when he was still at SC. His defense was his problem, but could have been worked with in a different situation. Also coaches like Lockery kill a lot of players. He's one of those purist idiot mind control type coaches like Billy Martin of the Yankees who benched Reggie Jackson just to show him up and for "old school" reasons that had nothing to do with the game itself. It wasn't Miner's fault people called him Baby Jordan. I think Lockery hated that and wanted to show Miner "a thing or two," teach him an unnecessary lesson. Lockery was the one needed a lesson, in coaching that is. It ain't like the Heat didn't have the talent back then to win Championships or at least the East. So f---Lockery and coaches like him who just like to control people, and take credit for the players that learn fast and not really teach the game to players who don't. D-Wade would have had the same problem under Lockery. D-Wade is overhyped just like Miner, and isn't the Defensive "guru" either. And it took him a couple seasons before he "blew up." The NBA is an adjustment for some guys, doesn't mean they don't have what it takes if it takes them some time to develop into their true potential. Look at Chauncey Billups, who would be selling cars if he played in the 80's and early 90's. I digress. Harold Miner was a damn good NBA player, a great college player, and THE BEST all around player USC has ever produced. Any Trojan people who don't agree, are just plain old, or don't know the game. I'll argue that shit with anybody. Harold was the truth.
