Remember Darius Miles? I remember the former #3 pick of the Clippers in Nike commercials, mainstream movies, magazine covers, on clothing and Sportscenter’s Top 10 on an nightly basis. Then it seemed like almost overnight, he went from future star in the league to “trouble maker” to out of the league at the age of 28. Sadly, the last time I remember hearing his name was in 2011 when he was arrested for carrying a loaded gun in an airport.
If you are interested in reading more about Miles’ journey then I highly suggest you read this great article by Adam Figman. If you just want to remember the good times of those days, then enjoy these clips – starting with his career high 47 (yes 47!) in 2005.
