Willie Miller isn’t playing in the PBA now, but that doesn’t mean he’s not making a living from basketball.
The two-time Most Valuable Player who was one of the latest players to be included among the league’s 40 Greatest Players is still playing ball in Marikina. Players from the PBA call it “larong labas”, but Miller is legal from doing such as he has no PBA team to play for.
But while the league in Marikina is considered just a minor league, how true is it that Miller is receiving between P20,000 to P25,000 per game?
Multiple sources who have knowledge on what’s going on in the minor league in Marikina told Tiebreaker Times that there might be validity to such a claim.
“Grabe ang pustahan doon sa Marikina,” said a source, who requested anonymity.
The same source was referring to the league of Mayor Del de Guzman, being held at the Marikina Sports Complex. Another source added: “Nasa P25,000 si Miller kada laro. Kasi import siya doon eh. Tsaka siya talaga yung inaasahan.”
Outside of playing in the minor league, Miller gets his daily expenses through the four taxi units he operates.
Despite this, the lefty guard is waiting for an opportunity to play in the PBA anew.
