Von Miller plays NBA 2K15 with Verne ‘Mini Me’ Troyer (video)


Von Miller has been whipped up in a whirlwind promotional/celebration tour every since earning MVP honors courtesy of his dominant performance in the Denver Broncos’ 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

The standout linebacker has made cameos on “Saturday Night Live,” appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and otherwise has been the talk of the proverbial town over the past two weeks.

But all the exciting events of the past few weeks may have reached its high point sometime last week when Miller paid a visit to the home of none other than Verne Troyer — “Mini Me” of “Austin Powers” fame — to play the diminutive star in a game of “NBA 2K15.”

As noted in a blog post on The Denver Post, some of the topics discussed by Miller and Troyer were “farting, tattoos and movies.”

Oh, and Miller in the end beat Troyer in video game basketball, as his Los Angeles Lakers beat his host’s Houston Rockets. So there you go.
