    I am not an attorney, but it sounds to me like Miller may have a case.

    He plays for Satan. What should he expect? I hear Satan lives and sells real estate in South Beach. Has an alter ego that's a sports agent representing several Heat players.

    Funny, last I heard Satan was living in Tuscaloosa.

    Seems like Miller has pi$$ed away a few bucks lately. Good thing he has skills to keep getting contracts. Here's to his good health in Memphis.

    Hey Mike, give this shady guy you don't know 2 mill.

    "OK"

    Good god. Even athletes I think are smart are idiots.

    If you're stupid, buy precious metals and invest in low risk IRA's with national corporations.. You can even dabble in a little real estate without losing money.

    Jesus.

    The problem isn't that the bling king lost Miller's money....its that he paid off some of his $3 million debt to the Heat instead of giving Miller the money he was due. Basically, the Heat colluded with the guy to use Miller's money to pay back the Heat.

    I just had a hearing today in a case where we pled similar facts, which under Florida law, support claims for negligent misrepresentation and fraudulent inducement, among other things. Ladner v. AmSouth Bank, 32 So. 3d 99 (Fla. 2d DCA 2009) is pretty much right on point here.

    If true, no biggie for Mickey. He can just toss a couple bucks Mike's way or maybe settle for a couple of free cruises or something.

    Yeah, I get that he was screwed. However, he still gave some random guy (yes, he is a random guy) 2 mill. It's not like this fella worked at a Merrill Lynch office.

    $700,000 of the money stolen from Miller went back to the Heat to pay for courtside seats. Since it was stolen money, wouldn't the law support Miller at least getting that money back? It seems like the Heat refused to give the money back, so now Miller is going for the entire 1.7 million.

    Sounds like how the government approached Chase to buy a dying concern...only to crucify them later for doing so.

    You should take more time before throwing stones. The Heat introduced Miller to the scam artist and a Heat exec vouched for the guy. Previously, the scam artist had gotten over $10 mil from a guy who had started a number of successful companies.

    Miller wasn't being "stupid," he got fooled. Happens to the best of us. I wager nearly anyone here, had they been introduced to the scammer by their employer, would have done exactly what Miller did.

    Love Mike Miller and his style of play and his great days as a Gator. That said, I can't weep for the problems of millionaire athletes. He'll still be a millionaire once this is settled and I'll still be a wage-slave struggling to pay my mortgage. I can only wish that I had MM's problems.

    According to the way this is reported, to get back $700,000 of the money ($3,000,000) the guy owed them. The sides apparently disagree and thus they are headed to court for now.

    This I don't doubt, I just find it hard to believe that the heat would scam a player like that.

    The Heat might not, but some guy working for the Heat whose responsibility includes that $3,000,000 might.
