Reggie Miller says D'Angelo Russell can only learn by watching Kobe Bryant

What does noted talent evaluator think of the ' young players?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Reggie Miller is not exactly known as a beloved national announcer. He often doesn't appear to have watched very much, if any, of the team he is being paid to commentate on any given night, and is content to spend the night talking about various narratives around a team rather than analyzing what is happening on the floor. The latest example of this came in the second quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Houston Rockets, when Reggie claimed to have been unable to notice D'Angelo Russell on the floor:

Apparently Reggie thinks young players can only develop by watching Kobe Bryant shoot career lows from the field while they stand around on the side of the floor. His point makes sense, if you don't think about it even a little bit. It's like the old saying goes: "watching practice makes perfect." Or something like that. Reggie didn't notice that cliche and thinks it needs to learn from other ones.
