Hornets rookie Brandon Miller recently played a game on TikTok where he had to select players for a random starting lineup. However, Miller’s lack of recognition for Khris Middleton and Jonas Valanciunas caused a humorous moment during the game.
As the photos of various players appeared on the screen, Miller confidently selected Zach LaVine, Damian Lillard, and Giannis Antetokounmpo for the shooting guard, point guard, and power forward positions, respectively. However, when a photo of Khris Middleton appeared at the small forward spot, Miller admitted, “I don’t know these two,” referring to Middleton and Isaiah Hartenstein, who was displayed as the center.
Nonetheless, Miller decided to keep Middleton, the 2021 NBA champion, as his small forward choice. When Jonas Valanciunas’ photo was revealed at the center position, Miller expressed his excitement for his chosen starting five, stating, “Aw yeah, that’s my five right there. Starting five. We’re going for a championship. Only I don’t know the center.”
