This interview is a week old, but, honestly, it's too beautiful not to point out to anyone who might have missed it.

Darius Miles, fun guy and beacon of stability, talked to Jason Quick of The Oregonian, and, well, we'll just let Darius talk.

Yeah, you probably smelled liquor on me before. But it's not like I'm at practice drunk. I'm totally focused. I don't care if you come to practice and take shower, once you go to practice and start sweating, its going to come out. That doesn't mean you aren't focused or ready to practice. Like you might go out, you might get drunk, and come to the gym higher than a mother, and you sweating, you smell like liquor, and you interviewing everybody. What does that mean? You still 100 percent focused. That's just ridiculous. Ask any other team, little petty stuff like that, if you ask any other coach in the NBA if they smell liquor on a player, any coach would say, every year. Some players go out in every city they go to.

Oh, but there's so much more. Read the whole thing. The NBA rules.
