“If Michael Jordan ever would have called me and tried to sway me to come to Chicago, I would have told him to go (expletive) himself,” Miller told ESPN.

Steph Curry became the Golden State Warriors’ all-time leading scorer Monday night, as his 53-point performance moved him past Wilt Chamberlain.

To mark the feat, ESPN interviewed Hall of Famers Jerry West and Reggie Miller and future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki, all who spent their careers with the same team and at one point led their franchise in scoring.

The question: Was there ever a point you felt like you might leave? Any superstar pitches to join forces?

“No,” Miller told ESPN. “And if Michael Jordan ever would have called me and tried to sway me to come to Chicago, I would have told him to go (expletive) himself! ‘I’ll be coming to see you on I-65,’ or whatever that highway is there. ‘I’ll be down to see you.’”

Miller went on to admit that the Knicks came calling, but that was already after Miller and New York “had a storied history,” as he put it. Nowtizki told ESPN he fielded a call from the late Kobe Bryant after one of his final deals with the Mavericks expired, but he politely declined.

One of the best shooters in NBA history, Miller said it pains him he never helped deliver the Pacers a championship — something Curry, who Miller called “Mr. Warrior,” has done three times for Golden State.

Finding that type of success with the team that drafted you is rare, Miller said.

“It’s jewelry over loyalty,” he told ESPN.
