Willie Miller is one among the few talented players left without a team in the PBA Philippine Cup.
The two-time Most Valuable Player is still waiting for an opportunity to be recalled and although he has no PBA team to play for, the latest member of the league’s Top 40 Greatest Players of All-time has managed to keep himself in shape by playing in minor leagues.
Kia coach Glenn Capacio, who coached Miller before with GlobalPort, believes the veteran guard still has enough left to be one of the vital cogs in the pro league. “Sa totoo lang, puwedeng-puwede pa si Willie,” Capacio told Tiebreaker Times.
Miller and Capacio also played together under one team.
The former Letran Knight was then a rookie playing for Red Bull coached by Yeng Guiao while Capacio was at the twilight of his career. They won a championship together. So when Capacio got the chance to coach in the PBA, Miller was one of those he truly considered.
Will Capacio do the same for Miller with Kia?
“Kung may pagkakataon bakit hindi? Pero even if maglaro man siya sa amin, kakailanganin pa rin niya ng tulong,” added Capacio. “There’s no shortcut to success. Kailangan may proseso yan. It takes time.”
