Darius Miles Mini-interview
On Monday the Boston Celtics waived forward Darius Miles. The team already has 15 players signed, so there simply wasn't room for Miles. If the team wanted to keep him they were going to have to get rid of someone else. That didn't happen. InsideHoops.com editor Jeff Lenchiner was with Miles a few days ago for a quick 90-second exclusive interview. This exclusive mini-interview was recorded before the team parted ways with him.
InsideHoops.com: Talk about the last couple of seasons.
Darius Miles: It was hard. I was fine... It was just hard to be on a team that didn't want to play you.
InsideHoops.com: How is it being here with the Celtics? It's a crowded roster, but at the least it's good experience for you here.
Darius Miles: It's a blessing to even be a part of this, whether it's for two months or whether it's for a year. That I even have a chance to come and play for them. They didn't have to do that. They didn't have to even take a chance on me. It's a blessing. Everyone on the team has accepted me.
InsideHoops.com: How has your game changed from a few years ago?
Darius Miles: I'm not a number one, number two option anymore. I'm more of a role player.
InsideHoops.com: You were always thought of as a small forward who was versatile enough to play other spots. Is that still the case?
Darius Miles: I still do that.
InsideHoops.com: So now should we think of you as a three who leans more towards the four, or more towards the two?
Darius Miles: I can do both. Either one.
