Media, fans react to the amnesty of Mike Miller
No doubt this guy Mike Miller made an impression during his time with the Miami Heat. When the signing was announced three years ago fans were excited and NBA analyst called it a good move.
Although the years were injury filled, they were some big moments that outweighed the bad.
First the official word
OFFICIAL: The @MiamiHEAT have waived Mike Miller per the NBA's Amnesty provision.

and to further drive the point home that the Heat are a family organization and that this probably wasn’t an easy decision, a tweet from Heat owner Mickey Arison

Some reaction to the deal
How do we amnesty mike miller but not joel anthony? Joel anthony hasn't even played in the last 2 finals. He's worthless

Mike Miller was out there hitting 3's with one shoe on and now he gets amnesty waived. Ungrateful ass Pat Riley.

Mike Miller was a big help the last two finals and it is sad to see him go. However, that is a lot of money they saved by using the amnesty.

Was a little hurt to see @MiamiHEAT amnesty Mike Miller. He was a big part of the team he will surely be missed.

Waiving Mike Miller would save the Heat over $40 million in tax payments over the next two seasons.

Mike Miller's finest moment was fighting for and winning the offensive rebound that led to LeBron's 3 in final minute of Game 6 vs Spurs

Miller amnesty shows bit of split in front office. Pat Riley twice publicly called for owner Micky Arison to leave team intact.

Best of luck to Mike Miller wherever he goes. One of the best guys in the NBA, he'll be missed in Miami. 2011-2012 Finals Game 5 forever!

That'll teach Mike Miller to lose his sneaker during play
