"Yeah, that's accurate," Miller told the Oregonian in response to a controversial interview with Yahoo! Sports.
"That's the mentality that every player should have. If it doesn't go my way, it doesn't go my way. But I'm going to continue to work hard regardless of the situation. So the coach runs the team and whatever decision he makes, I have to live with it. But I'm not going to change my work habits and my work ethic. I'm going to continue to work hard and that should be every player's goal going into the season, setting goals to be on the court as much as they can."
Portland coach Nate McMillan is still deciding who will start at point guard to begin the season -- Miller or incumbent Steve Blake.
Miller added that he feels as though the media has given him a bad rap already.
