So remember the kid that boldly declared Kentucky would be 36-1 after clashing with his West Virginia Mountaineers? Well, he’s dead. Freshmen guard Daxter Miles Jr. was murdered in cold blood and his lifeless body was left on the court in front of millions of viewers worldwide as a statement by the Wildcats.
Miles Jr. was not fortunate enough to suffer a swift, humane, and painless death. No, the poor bastard was hung, drawn and quartered, stuffed into a brazen bull, and cooked alive at the command of executioner Calipari.
When it was all said and done, his team was on the wrong side by about three-hundred points and Miles Jr. contributed a big ol’ goose egg to an already pathetic party of 39.
When West Virginia’s locker room opened for the media after the game, Miles Jr. was not under his placard, not sitting by his locker. He wasn’t on the other side of the building either, meeting with the media .
Miles Jr. was instead preparing himself for strangers’ faces to cram into his personal space, to deal with something that clearly got bigger than he could have ever expected. Tucked around a corner, in the team’s bathroom, Miles Jr. was waiting out the mob. When a media member approached one of his teammates for an interview in the small hallway leading to the bathroom, Miles Jr. then dipped into the handicap lavatory and closed the door behind him, his frizzy hair peeking above the tall stall.
Jesus, it just doesn’t get any lower. Any shred of dignity Miles Jr. might’ve had before his untimely death (1 rebound), was proverbially and literally flushed down the shitter.
Pour some out for Dax tonight..
