What the Hell Happened to Darius Miles? : Written by Darius Miles, edited by Quentin Richardson -- Dudes like me ain’t supposed to talk about this type of stuff. I’m about to tell you some real shit. Things I haven’t told anybody. But first, we gotta go back in time. We gotta go back to when the NBA was still the NBA. Way back when I had the pager with the two-way alert.

I’m about to tell you the most Y2K story ever.

I’m about to tell you how I almost died at Alonzo Mourning’s crib in the year 2000 on some dumb shit.

I had just finished reading this before I hit SpoFi. The style is light and quite funny at times, but as I read more deeply, I really didn't know whether to laugh or to cry. There is much to be considered here concerning current social problems.

This is one of the best pieces of sportswriting I've read in a long time. So much hilarity and pain, told in a style that really captures a personality and an era.

This was such an awesome piece. Sent it to a friend of mine because we both liked Miles so much (didn't he finish his career with the Celtics in preseason one year). The weirdest bit was I had been wondering this exact question last week.
