Its not really easy to determine exactly how many miles run, due to missed shots and unknown how many times ran up and down the court. Also, generally not all players play the whole game. So, we will just use estimated number.

if you use a score of 90-80 for an average game. that's approx. 45trips down the floor. Now, the players do not make every shot so using a shooting average of 50% that makes approx 90 trip down the floor.

the length of an NBA court is 94 feet.

94 ft x 90 trips = 8460 feet

there are 5280 ft in a mile

8460 / 5280 = 1.602 miles

probably 6 or so. in my opinion 7 minutes is the lowest respectable time for an athlete's mile.
