Former Heat player Mike Miller, who played important roles in the playoffs during the last 2 seasons when the Heat won the championship is now considering filing a lawsuit against the team. Why? Well recently Miller found out he was the victim of a scam investment with a well known South Beach jeweler. He lost over $1.7 million in the scam, and he thinks the Heat may be part to blame as well. Hit the jump.
As Per The Miami Herald:
“Miller, who now plays for the Memphis Grizzlies, lost $1.7 million in a scam allegedly orchestrated by Haider Zafar, a South Beach bling king who presented himself as a member of a wealthy Pakistani family.
According to Miller’s complaint that has been drawn up but not yet filed, a Heat employee introduced Miller to Zafar, and Zafar used $700,000 of the money he stole from Miller to pay for courtside Heat tickets”
So long story short, Miller took a big loss, but he feels since a member of the Heat organization introduced Miller to the con-man, that the team should be held responsible for some of his losses. Can’t blame him for trying, but I think this one will be on him.
