The Lakers are a few swingman short, correct? And Darius Miles is a swingman seeking a job, correct? OK, enough B.S. The Lakers should sign Darius Miles and play him in two games so that the up-and-coming Western Conference rival Blazers owe him $18 million over the next two years and hit the luxury tax. Talk about a shrewd front office move.
Meanwhile, the Blazers are threatening to sue any team that signs Miles. My response: who gives a shit? What are they going to say in court? That Mitch Kupcheck, one of the NBA’s highest-regarded GMs, wanted to see if a 27-year-old basketball player who was once good enough to be picked third overall out of high school still had any game in him? Exactly. They. Have. No. Case.
Sign Darius up! You know he’s interested in making $18 M for two days work. Hell, watching the Lakers and then running up and down the court a few times for $9 M. That’s gotta be the best job of all time.
