One of the reasons Darius Miles has played better is because he's more of a focus for the Portland Trail Blazers' offense. Nate McMillan told him that he was going to get him some looks, and that's something Miles hasn't had. He's taken advantage of it. When the New Orleans Hornets traded Jamaal Magliore, it opened up an opportunity for David West, and that was huge. Right now, West is on the shortlist to be the Bobby Simmons of this season.
