Brad Miller, who was traded from Sacramento to Chicago on Wednesday, became emotional in a radio interview right after the news became public.

"I'm pretty happy. It's a good opportunity in terms they're right on the borderline of the playoffs. Kind of the same situation Mike (Bibby) went into last year," Miller said.

"You go to a team like that where they've been kind of like ehh, whatever, a little been of change like that and get into the playoffs and get some excitement back. I love Chicago as a city so that's a bit of a bonus for me."

However, Miller will undoubtedly miss Sacramento.

"Definitely my first year here," Miller said of his favorite memory with the Kings. "Probably the first home game, to see it packed crazy, that was my favorite year of my entire life playing basketball in terms of how good the fans where. It's gonna be tough [crying] ... My daughter was born here in Sacs, so there's a lot people I'm going to miss and it's just tough."

I don't see it funny. I kind of think it's cool to see a player become emotionally attached to a team especially with free agency nowadays.

I can understand how you get attached to a city. I'd definitely cry if I ever moved out of LA.

I see it as hilarious because Brad Miller is a drag on the entire NBA culture.

Anything negative that happens to him basketball wise is good for the whole of the league.

Exactly.

I feel his daughters being born in Sacramento - that's enough to warrant emotion... but the league needs to get better and people like Miller being content losing in Sac-To is NOT good for the whole of the league.

That - and I hate Brad Miller with a passion.

Bad person, bad to mediocre player and just an overall jerk.

Why is he a jerk?

Just because he happens to wear another jersey? What did he do to you? Seriously, this is just a game. This isn't a war.

Settle down lakerfool.

You take everything so personally. I don't like the guy. He's a jerk. I don';t have to like everyone in the NBA. It has nothing to do with his jersey. If he was wearing Jiffy Lube coveralls - he'd still be a grade A jerk.

That's my opinion - I'm entitled to it.

How is this funny... anyone leaving a "home" in any way or fashion would become emotional...

I've been in Santa Barbara for my undergrad and first master's degree... will have been here 7 years before I leave.

Doesn't matter what other people may think about my 7 years in this place... it's going to be an emotional day for sure.

We don't know what he's been through off the basketball court. We see the guy maybe 3-4 times a week for a 3-4 hour span... that's nothing. We don't really know what he's leaving. For us to laugh at him for getting emotional shows something.

The same reason some people think "Disaster Movie" is funny and others love "Caddyshack".

I don't like the guy, its funny to me.

You haven't given me any reasons for him being a 'jerk'. Did he date your sister? What makes him a jerk? You're making no sense.

I don't have to explain / justify ever one of my opinions for you lakerfool.

Sometimes in life others won't agree with you. It doesn't make you right, them right or either wrong. Opinions differ - I don't like the guy, you have no problem with him - that's the way it is.

So be it.

To me, Brad Miller crying because he has to leave Sacramento is laugh riot. Whether you and me are going to go have beers over it or not is of no concern to me.

Not liking somebody you've never met on life and seen on TV a couple of time? You're an adult and you and I both know how that makes you look.

I don't see how missing Sac is laughable. Sacramento has loyal fans, gave him his biggest pay checks, is only an hour away from snow, an hour from San Francisco/wine country. The city itself isn't the best in the world, but Miller is a small town guy anyways.

We wouldn't have gone through 'ship his arse out' and kobe wanting a trade last season if he had Brad Miller's type of loyalty.

lakerfool - again - I don't have to explain anything to you or anyone else.

I have my opinion and that's it.

Bringing up your ran-into-the-ground dislike of Kobe has nothing to do with your "point" your trying to make.

You're also being argumentative and self-righteous - and we all know how that makes you look. So we're both not perfect - I've learned to deal with it - its high time you do as well.

Its well known you like to bait argument for argument's sake. Unfortunately I've fallen into your trap this time, but this is the last post I'll make on the subject.
