One man's honest opinion about sports in the Motor City, and beyond.

Surfing (they have a lot of good writers)... and I came across a piece, by Gene Wojciechowski, called "Dumb and Dumber"... In it are the details of various recent moronic happenings... The one below seems to have flown somewhat under the radar (at least mine), but needs to be read... I honestly can't believe he said this... Enjoy...

Miles, in an interview with Jason Quick of the Portland Oregonian: "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 a shower, once you go to practice and start sweating, it's 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."'

Huh???? Come to practice drunk AND "higher than a mother" Not just drunk. Not just high. Drunk and "higher than a mother" (who's mother?)... Unbelievable... I wonder who he was higher than when he did this interview (Pauly Shore maybe?).

Seriously, D-Miles (if I may), if you find it necessary to go to practice drunk and high... That is fine. But, next time you are interviewed, you should really try to sober up first... for cereal.

Do yourselves a favor and read the rest here.
