New Destination or Same Old Miles to go?

   As a result of Sundays entry, I went back and re-read Freemans article/interview about Darius. I had already posted my response. Upon re-reading one little almost hidden sentence, on page two really jumped out and bothered me, it's this sentence: "Miles insists he is the same person he's always been.".

   Quick said it in his blog the day before. "Nothing has changed between his ears".

   Then I re-read again, and again. I noticed a disturbing fact. It's everyone around Miles, saying or hoping he's changed, but Miles himself doesn't think he's changed. And more disturbingly doesn't seem to think he has any reason to need to change.

  Then it hit me, it's the same old Miles. It's once again, not his fault. He's not to blame and he's been misunderstood.

   Why does that one little sentence bother me so much? Because if Miles has changed, or really wants to change, then wouldn't it be better if instead of insisting he's the same person he has always been, he would admit to some growth and change, or more importantly admit to the need to change? Isn't Miles more or less just telling us he is a nice guy and has always been a nice guy.

  I think you can debate in the original post, how much of the Darius Miles we perceive is media created and how much is real, and how much we as fans can really know. But when Darius says he hasn't changed, and doesn't seem to admit that there is any reason for him to change, then I worry. Sounds too much like the Alcoholic, who when sober will tell you he hasn't got a problem but sadly we all know it's just a matter of time. All I'm saying is, the whole article would of left me feeling better, if Darius had said, he isn't the same old Darius.-- Change is good Darius, Change is good.
