The Celtics have been praising Darius Miles, whom they recently released, but two NBA general managers claim that the Blazers have been bad-mouthing the free agent forward.

Miles was bothered by both injuries and off-the-court problems during his five seasons in Portland and was waived April 14. However, if he plays in ten games over the next two seasons, the Blazers will be on the hook for $18 million in salary.

"He can still play, and he also hasn't played in two years, so you have to understand that he will get better," one NBA GM said.

"Too bad Portland is putting out bad information that he is not a good kid. Anything and everything they can say bad they are. It's too bad. He's a nice kid with a bad injury who has fought back. Right now, he's still an NBA player, and he's going to get better. He's going to improve. It will be a smart pick-up for someone."

Only in the NBA can you call your coach (Mo Cheeks) the N-Word 20-something times in a practice and be called a "Nice kid" a couple years later.

Of course he behaved well when he was with boston, he was trying to score a contract. Besides who would blame Portland for bad-mouthing him, they have a reason to do so. The guy has been nothing but a pain in the ***.

He should just buy an island or something and enjoy the rest of his life there..

I think telling the hard truth is a little more like it. Miles has a bad history. He has never made a team he has been on better.

Boston was the team that cut him while they had a legit SF need. Every WC GM is hoping that someone else signs him.
