The Charlotte Hornets are feeling good after selecting Brandon Miller as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.
With Scooter Henderson on board, many fans thought the point guard was the right choice.
There’s nothing they can do to change that decision now, and the Hornets seem happy with Miller.
Miller has shown his confidence as soon as he is drafted and has claimed that the Hornets will play in the 2024 NBA Finals.

It’s always nice to see a young player bursting with tremendous confidence, but this is completely unrealistic for the Hornets.
The Hornets haven’t even made the playoffs since taking LaMelo Ball in the 2019 NBA Draft, barely making it into the play-in tournament in 2020.
Their current roster is very similar to what it was three seasons ago, and nothing looks like they can move past this situation and actually compete for a championship.
Brandon Miller is considered by the team to be a future perennial All-Star.
Last season, with Alabama, he posted 18.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
The Hornets have been a pushover in the league for some time now and will hope Miller can change that.
They finished the 2022–23 season with a 27–55 record, 14th in the Eastern Conference standings.
Going from the bottom of the standings to the NBA Finals seems pretty impossible right now, but Miller believes the team can make it.
The Hornets are one of five teams that will never play in the championship series.
