Darius Miles attempting NBA Comeback, maybe with the Bobcats

On the same day as Game 7 of the NBA finals, Darius Miles is running the floor alongside several players who have never been in the NBA and perhaps never will.

It was hardly the place for a former No. 3 overall pick in the draft. But following what was once called a "career-ending" knee injury and off-court problems, Miles is determined to overcome the rustiness and his balky knee to play in the NBA again.

If it requires being a grunt in the Charlotte Bobcats' obscure free-agent camp the same week the league crowns a champion, so be it.

He is trying out for the Bobcats right now. Or he was yesterday. Brown said he was healthy and looked good. He also said he has always wanted to coach him.

edit: Opps. Did you edit the Bobcats part in or did i completely miss it?

"My body is back," he said after a workout at Time Warner Cable Arena this week. "It's been three, four years since I've been healthy. This time I took off I really just kind of worked on getting my body healed."

Charlotte's Brown never forgot about Miles, whose long, athletic frame feeds Brown's craving of players who can play multiple positions.

"It's been 10 years I've been trying to get him in a gym," Brown said. "Finally did it."

How freaking old is this guy?

He's only 28. If he can help the 'Cats they should sign him. I doubt he'll make the team though.
