Jay Miller’s Milwaukee Bucks career is pretty far from distinguished. He lasted exactly three games with Milwaukee before ending up in the ABA, where he found go on to finish his basketball playing days. Miller played just four combined years across leagues, and never made much of an impact on any of his teams.
Miller’s most memorable stint was with the Los Angeles Stars, the team he ended up with after the Bucks dumped him. Miller scored 12.5 points per game with the Stars, but still got moved to the Indiana Pacers (who were then in the ABA) after just 11 games.
Miller’s time with Milwaukee obviously wasn’t very memorable, considering he was around for just three games. Still, he did get minutes in the Bucks first game, and thus will always be on the fringe of Milwaukee Bucks history.
He scored two points without making a field goal in the Bucks first game. He converted both of his free throw attempts, and that was that. At least Miller found a successful team over in the ABA–he won a title with the 1970 Pacers in the NBA’s competitor at the time.
