Following Kentucky's 2012 national championship win Miller was chosen to present a commemorative Kentucky jersey and championship ring to President Barack Obama during the team's visit to the White House on May 4, 2012. During the visit, Obama noted that Miller is the only player from Kentucky to have been named Kentucky's "Mr. Basketball" (high school player of the year in the state), win a KHSAA state championship (Mason County High School) and claim an NCAA title with the University of Kentucky.3 Miller finished his college career having played more games for the University of Kentucky than any other player.4 The Wildcats' championship game and Miller's last collegiate match, was his 152nd appearance for the team, surpassing Wayne Turner's previous record of 151 games.
The New Orleans Hornets selected Miller in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft (along with his fellow Kentucky teammate, Anthony Davis with the No. 1 pick). On December 31, 2012, Miller was assigned to the Iowa Energy.5 He was recalled on January 27, 2013.6 In April 2013, the Hornets were renamed the Pelicans.
