Andre Miller and the Denver Nuggets terminated their relationship in less than subtle terms.

The point guard and the franchise were both at odds during his time their, but now the point guard is accusing his former side of lying to the public and trying to publicly smear and humiliate him.

“I was made out to be the bad guy, the villain because I was the one complaining about minutes,” Miller told Yahoo Sports. “That wasn’t the issue at all."

“I came out and represented the organization, played games, practiced and did it the right way. Don’t bash me. It’s not true saying I was disgruntled about minutes and complaining. In reality, I was just speaking up for guys on the team and being a veteran leader. I was just doing my job," Miller went on to say in the interview.

Miller and the Nuggets first butted heads back in January when he got into a heated argument with head coach Brian Shaw.

He was initially suspended for two games by the side, but the decision was rescinded yet he still failed to play in the games due to "coaches decision."

In the subsequent weeks, Miller left the team while they attempted to find a trade and they ultimately sent him to the Washington Wizards at the deadline, where he has been averaging 3.9 points and 3.4 assists a game backing up John Wall.

Things have worked themselves out now, but Miller is still unhappy with the lack of professionalism shown by his former employees.

"[The Nuggets said] I was complaining about minutes and that was never the issue. They made it look that way, and that I was upset," Miller concluded.
