If you check out www.euro.basket.com you can search the world's league for a Player & nothing comes up now for Harold. He must have retired by now.

Found this about Harold Miner:

"he tried to play again in the ABL but he had to retire because his knees went bad on him."

and

"Harold Miner is in las Vegas doing well with his stunt in the NBA. He never tried to play overseas or play in the ABA or any other league because his contract with Nike didn't allow to do so until either last year or this year. Word is he is free now and playing ball here and there. He still got his hops. He got a tight crib out in Nevada, you can go to the clerk of courts website and it gives you an overview of his crib. Looks like a mansion, I see a huge pool and a full size court. don't count Harold out, he's not stupid. Just alot of pressure on a basketball player from Inglewood. maybe he might surprise us."

I was a huge fan of Harold Miner. I recorded all the highlights from his games. He was the baskeball player I most wanted to emulate. What happened to him was outrageous. It just shows that talent alone is not what makes people shine. Put them in bad situations and even the best players can look average, even less than average. I weep for Harold Miner and the NBA. I think he was close to being as good as Kobe, the best player since Jordan.

I'm a huge Miner fan too. Best college shooting guard I have ever seen. I have never heard anything connecting him to any drugs at all. As a NBA player he just never got any playing time. Heat Managment was behind him even traded Steve Smith so he could start, but coach Kevin Lock. seemed to hate him. I remember this game he scored 14 points in 7 mins. vs the Nets. Another came he came of the bench a dropped 22 on John Starks. The 20 he had on Jordan as a Rook, the 28 point game vs. Celtics and the 27 vs the Jazz are still big to me. When he played he played well on offense. He was on a team with about 9 other players who were the same size wise. In 94 he was a big reason they made the playoffs, I still feel they lost game 5 cause Miner didn't get to play. He was traded to the Cavs were he almost never got to play. In 96-1997 he signed a contract with the Raptors (Zeke loved Miner's talent) just before the preseason, very shorthly I believe got tired of the hassle and he retired, because he never played for them. He did have knee problems all during his last 3 years as it kept him out of the 94 contest. Awesome dunker top 5 all time. I have a pair of his Air Flights.

I think FSN should put out a "Beyond the Glory" on him. I was just watching an NBA behind the scenes type show and the owner of the atl Hawks mentioned that he showed up for a wannabe NBA pickup game with some NBDL'ers and scored like 60 points. Then he never came back. Miner still has some game left in those old knees of his. Come back and save the Timberwolves Miner, they need you.

The man didnt have any skills other than dunking. I watched him every night with the Heat and he had no shot, no low post game, couldnt dribble in traffic and low BBall IQ. In college he couldnt be stopped but in the NBA they play D and he was lost. When he went to Cleveland his coach said his problem was moving without the ball. The Heat knew that for years and dumped him. He had a strong body and mad hops but thats about it.

I once saw a dunk he made that made me cry, but I guess you need more than that because he was a complete failure in the NBA. I heard he was working security somewhere for awhile. Remember he played before the big contracts so I doubt if he has that much still. I'm sure he can still clean up at the local courts so look out if you see him, but for all the people here who said he had skillz his total game was a joke.

Man, I dont care what anyone says bout Harold Miner. He has got to be the second most underated player that ever went into the NBA. The NBA just dumped him off like nothing, people dont realize it but the NBA does some bullshit under the fans nose. Just look at what the did to the #1 most underated player ever, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. He got "Blacklisted" from the NBA just cause of beliefs. Im sure the leauge put some kind of mark on Miner as well. Growing up in Denver Mahmoud is my all time favorite player and anyone from Denver knows his a legend. I would give anything to meet Mahmoud and Harold Miner.

The man had crazy hops. People don't know what there talking bout. He had crazy skills....just no playing time. For the people who say he had no skills, Kobe had the same skills Miner had when he came into the league. The Lakers coaches worked with Kobe on his shot and having Shaq helps alot.If the coaches in Miami had the patients and worked with Miner as the Lakers coaches did with Kobe....just imagine.

Stop whining about poor Harold Miner. I'll tell you what happened to Baby J: No D! It doesn't matter how great your offense is, if you are unwilling to commit to Defense, your career will be shortlived. Add to the fact that he never had a consistent outside jumper and well, you get the rest.

It's a simple equation really:

Athletic+Ability to dunk+No D+No outside game=The And1 circuit

If Miner had been drafted now, he might have made it. Because that's the problem with the NBA now. Everybody is tall and athletic, so dunking is easy. All they show on the highlight reels are the dunks. Who cares about working on the harder aspects like outside shooting and defense. I admit, I really enjoyed watching Miner play, but he has himself to blame. The guy was super athletic, but that just ain't enough. The road is littered with great prospects like poor Harold Miner...

Miami Heat organization and Kevin Loeughry or whatever was his last name,destroyed Harold Miner's career! Why did the Heat draft him at all if they had Steve Smith and Glen Rice! Harold Miner probaly did not have the greatest jumpshot or defense, but his strength was that he 'was' an incredible one-on-one player and he would break any type of defense.SCORING MACHINE!Unbelievable killer crossover(like TIMMY HARDAWAY)and a great crossover spin. And he would create shots when there was no shot, just like MIKE. In his prime he was a mix of Allen Iverson and Vince Carter together. As a rookie he averaged 1 point for every 2 minutes played, but he got so much bench time that his knees started to 'HURT'! There was a reason why he was called 'BABY JORDAN' and all you ANTI-MINERS BETTER FIGURE IT OUT! Hey, there is a member on this forum who's user name is DM and I got a question for you. You posted that you have highlights and videOs of Miner, would you be willing to sell me a copy? Anybody with videos of Miner e-mail at [email protected]

The reason Harold Miner is no longer in the NBA, isn't because he wasn't a good player...it was because he lacked an all-around game, rarely played defense. Plus his knees added to his demise. If he had dunked the hell outta the rim during games like Shawn Kemp did, he probably would've had plenty of playing time. He seemed to hesitate a lot when he played and seemed to disappear during games. I don't think he had the superstar qualities that would have put him with a Kobe or a Jordan. Look at Vince Carter...smoothest dunker in the world... but doesn't have the true superstar skills to be mentioned with Jordan or Kobe. Miner's a legend in his own right. For not even having a true NBA career, he's forever immortalized with his two Slam-Dunk Championships. One coming after knee surgery. Who can claim that? Kobe? Vince?

First of all, you rookies got it all twizted! I grew up in Inglewood for 22yrs and Harold was a close friend of mine who graduated in the same class of 88'. He got the name "babyJordan" back in the wood from his simulated play and facial features like the man himself. Myself and other friends supported Harold through his short NBA span in which i believe was short-changed due to reluctant coaches and management. Failure to develop more as a all-around player while applying effort from training camps'(Miami & Cleveland) yes, he was the most underrated player in the NBA of the 90's. I do recall dayz playing with him @Rogers park in Inglewood; sometimes even making an appearance at Darby park/clay courts on Crenshaw. Harold was a very humble and quiet homie if you really knew him but his sensitivity was a downfall. The deceptive hurt he received in the NBA (which was his dream) put a scar on his hopes of being the best player in the league. I lost contact over the years with he but i heard he is living good in Vegas i wish if anyone had dibs on him to contact my email: [email protected] For those who are curious contact Inglewood High in California for info. Much props to Harold for at least going for his dream and even though he missed out on somethings he still got to dwell among the stars.

I would recommend fans of Harold Miner to check out Stromile Swift of the Houston Rockets. Stromile is in a similar situation that Harold was in... Stromile was drafter #2 overall by the Vancouver Grizzlies in 2000 (a terrible team) but HAS NEVER RECEIVED BIG MINUTES!!!

Harold Miner, in his first two seasons, had a FG% of like 46%!! That's phenomenal for a guard, and he consistently got to the foul line. Despite his consistently aggressive play, his coaches always favored inferior players like Brian Shaw, Khalid Reeves, Ledell Eackles... just like Stromile Swift has been benched for guys like Lorenzen Wright, Shareef Abdur Rahim, Juwan Howard, Ryan Bowen, Bo Outlaw, etc...

I finally worked out what keeps this post alive. Google "Harold Miner" and it takes you right here.

An excerpt from a FoxSports column on Harold Miner: "I could perpetuate nine credible rumors about where he is today. He's either in the witness-protection program, playing ball in Japan, coaching in Las Vegas, living with his mom in L.A., running an insurance company in Florida, building homes in South Dakota, hooked on crack, writing for an online blogging competition, or dead. Nobody knows for sure just where Harold Miner is today. His career was a disappointment. His potential never realized. His greatness only a distant memory."

There's some other interesting stories out there: "When Harold was about age 15, his father left the family and moved away from home, after years of disputes and hard feelings. It's said that he was "vicious and mean, and did a lot of drinking," and that Harold's older brothers ran their father off at the point of a gun, or perhaps an axe."

Then there's stories of him dying ..... but alas, no-one really seems to know.

Harold miner was a great dunker. As an overall player, he was nothing special. He was never even close to being a "Baby Jordan". He's probably playing the skin flute these days.

Well, I guess we all have something to say about the "great Harold Miner". Some are moaning, some are boasting of his talent. Either way, he is somewhere out there better off than all of us, and we sit here debating his career. If he wasn;t that important, he wouldn't have generated so many responses from all of you!

A few years back, I was a huge USC fan. My uncle actually knew someone that had something to do with the basketball program. He was able to give me an authentic Harold Minor autographed jersey. The jersey I think was actually worn by Minor. It comes with a coa. Let me know if interested. E-mail me

I think it was interesting the post on miner's knees giving out because of his bench time. Imagine if Jordan was not given the green light by his coaches. For all the good Jordan did he was able to blossom and explore his creativity, while learning to be a ferocious defender. I think scoring and defense go hand and hand. If you are a prolific scorer, you obviously have skills, thus you could defend better in time do to the knowledge of how to score in the "N.o D.efense A.ssociation". Miner had the makings of a great player and the passion to be a role model for kids, with his infectious smile. Imagine following in the foot steps of Jordan? Can you all nay-sayers do it? Jordan is the greatest ever. Period. In fact I really think Jordan in his time actually liked Harold. Yes you can say their mat have been anomosity and NIKE and such, but Jordan loves the game, and most of all the passion. Listen when he talks of Magic, Bird, and the others. That coach for the heat, where is he now? I don't see partial or unpartial remarks on him at all. Like in life there are just individuals in life that make up their own damn choices, regardless of who's creativity they are foresakeing, cuz all they care about is the owner and the money! What about the fans I ask? They are the one's who matter, cuz who know's there maybe some kid up in the stands or watching on television seeing Jordan light up the Bird Celtics for 63... As for the sports networks on the NBA ( even ESPN ) show me the highlights of defense. period. Harold Miner where ever you are. Godbless man, your sensitivity is a blessing. Peace.

Damn, I did a search of"Harold Miner" and this is what I found. People still remember him. He was just gone all of the sudden. I don't buy that he couldn't do this or that. Most rookies today don't play D. It's different at the pro level. They have to learn, some learn faster than others. I think maybe he was too hard on himself. Even in the dunk contest, after his rediculous dunks, Barkley and other all stars were in amazement! Miner just had a blank stare. Didn't even smile. I don't think he liked being compared to Jordan and didn't like the pressure. Would you like going to work everyday being compared to someone else? Maybe he just got tired of it. He was humble....what's wrong with that? Thanks for the memories, Harold!

I am such a big fan of harold miner.
I liked the dunking but what really amazed me the most was his dribble drives, unbelievable. He had such deceptive way of dribbling really low to the ground and very quick.

he was definitely not a point guard though at times they foolishly played him in that position, taking the ball up the court.

his jump shot was on and off and his defense needed improvement- but he had some defensive tricks up his sleeve, he was great stealing and stripping the ball. But Kevin Louchery never helped in developing his game.

Kobe Bryant had the same skill level when entering the league but the only difference was he had a chance.

HM was the basketball player i wanted to emulate out of all the nba players. I hope he is doing well to this day and wish him the best of luck in life.

if anyone has footage of my favorite player of all time in games (not dunk contests) please email me: [email protected]

thanks.

What has happened to him post NBA? Eleven years of normal life, basically. I'll just leave it at that.

I enjoyed the Youtube video. Thanks.

This forum is interesting I must say... I never knew that the whereabouts of Miner had this much following. His sightings are getting up there with Elvis now.

I agree with the previous message that there should be a "Behind the Glory" on this kid. Not necessarily because he was the greatest baller ever but just for the fact that he dropped off the radar after having had such a memorable all-american college career and he still has a loyal following.

My most memorable moments... seeing him as a USC player come into UCLA Pauley Pavilion and putting on a show. On a breakaway he stopped at the 3 point line, dribbled the ball back and forth in between his legs multiple times, accelerated to the hoop and dunked. At that moment, I became a fan... And of course, who can forget the last second alley oop shot against Ohio State?

I came across this site because I just saw ESPN's "Best Dunkers" and Miner was #19. The commentator said that he had vanished and was curious to see what he was doing now but a google search came up empty. So, I decided to begin a search of my own....

I saw Harold on ESPN this week as one of the best dunkers. And it made me think as well were and the hell is he for real. I went to jr high and high school with he and he has always been a humble cat. He kinda had it bad like the rest of the people that come out of that city. But he had the skills for real. He was the first one to dunk at Crozier Jr. High, after that it was a rap when he got the Inglewood. I was playing on the soft team and he was starting on the JV team. Just hope that he's good cause for real if you really knew him he was a good dude. Big up Mr.Miner old friend from the hood M.M.

Don't forget David Thompson sportsfans. I'm old enough to have watched them both during their college careers and while Harold Miner definitely deserves his props, it's hard to believe that there will ever be another guard/forward that will come close to being as dominant a college ballplayer as DT. Yes, that does include Michael Jordan at the collegiate level. Hmm, where is he now?

To the last poster, David Thomson was amazing. In a sense, Micheal Jordan was "Baby Thomson" and idolized DT. Jordan has professed this and almost chose NCState over NC because David Thomson played there. I think NCState didn't recruit him or something, or NC wanted him more, don't remember. But Harold was the man in LA. Period. None of the Lakers even had the following Harold had all through his years at SC and in pickup games he used to school a lot of the Laker/Clipper players in the summers up at LMU, USC, and definitely is a legend at Rogers Park in Inglewood. (I was 16 and almost blocked his dunk, he got me though, figures, lol. Nuts.) Harold was one of a kind and definitely a lot like Dwayne Wade too, who might have had the same career had he went to the wrong situation. I hate coaches like Lockery or whoever the hell his name is. Miner was too talented to nitpick at his game and throw him on the bence because of some purist bull crap. Kinda like Billy Martin benching Reggie Jackson just to show who was in control. Ego, headgames that control freak coaches like to play. Assholes. Anyhow, Harold was a damn good NBA player and definitely one of the greatest college players ever, and HANDS fuckin' down, the best USC player ever. I'll argue that with anybody.

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.

I like the David Thomson post. Micheal Jordan was "Baby Thomson." He was his idol growing up in NC. And Jordan wanted to go to NC State growing up. NC recruited him though and the rest is history. Miner could have had a whole different career with lets say, The Clippers, The Kings, even The Lakers, back then.

It's amazing how much discussion can develop from four years of absolute mediocrity ! He had four years to prove himself, and simply wasn't up to standard. The league is full of stories of playground legends and college success-stories who simply weren't able to produce at the highest level (ask the O'Bannon brothers), and Miner is just more noticeable due to the dunk titles.
.. and like so many other so-called legends who never made it, it's amazing how it's always someone else's fault - it's NEVER the fact that the player simply didn't deserve the minutes .. or the career.

Just so everyone knows, I'm listening to Kanye West's latest "Champion" -- 'Did you realize...that you were a champion in their eyes?'

I'm 28 years old. I still remember HM's birthday (May 5th...who cares about cinco de freakin' Mayo?). I'm the writer of several blogs/poems/short stories/plays dealing with HM (The Revenge of Harold Miner - - Holla!).

I was teased throughout high school (for many reasons). But one of the reasons was that I was certain HM was coming back to rule the Association. It never happened, but I haven't given hope. I never will. Maybe he's cryogenically frozen in Anchorage and David Stern will bust him out in '08 to save the league from the Donagh-ate.

Man - I think if people knew Harold for the man he was, the rest of this post wouldn't matter. Yes give him his basketball props, but also give him his hood props. HM did USC PROPER!!! He even pulled some other no named players into his dorm - they lived with him and practiced with him and he made them better to give them a chance. What they did with it - who knows?

My brother was one of the guys that lived with HM at USC (Harold if you read this - my brother Patrick W. and my cousin Little Mike who played with you at Inglewood all want to just say what's up). Harold was a giver and reached back into the hood to help other dudes that didn't have fathers. He gave basketball shoes and basketball gear to kids in Inglewood. He gave out tickets to kids to come see him at USC.

For most that don't have that positive role model - HM became one and contributed into the lives of several guys in Inglewood. I have coached youth football in Inglewood for almost 12 years now as a result of the positive influence that several guys in Inglewood had on my life - Harold Miner, Paul Pierce and others.

I remember the last time I saw him, I was on Crenshaw crossing to hit the store on 77th and Crenshaw and heard this horn. As we all do, I looked over and realized who it was. It wasn't the car - it wasn't the head shape - it was that big old cheesey grin he flashed. We said what's up and kicked it just talking for about 45 minutes or so. He drove off getting ready to return to Miami. I haven't seen him since.

Harold if you see this - or his sister from an earlier post if you see him - what's up brotha!! From all the katz that played with you at Rogers or at Daniel Freeman - holla atcha boyz!! INGLEWOOD 4 LIFE!!!!!!!

I saw Harold the other day on the side of I71 outside of Louisville. It looked like he was picking a deer carcass off the side of the road. Too bad the guy had mad skills. Before that I heard he was the Rollo Polo chicken that would wave to people on the side of the road by the Mall. A guy that I knew who worked with him at that job said that Harold tried out for Rodeo Clown School but failed out. This is why he is on the side of the road now I guess.

You still fail to see the big picture DB5.

Miner was touted as "baby Jordan" - so 9ppg hardly gives him any career credit when he had such big raps.

While Gheorge wasn't a natural baller, he did win a most improved player of the year award and actually helped his teams.

Miner didn't help his teams - he couldn't be coached, the veterans he played alongside didn't trust him and he sulked when given few minutes.
