Darius Miles Update: Blazers now taking legal counsel from Ha Seung Jin, to remain totally awesome

You know those people that say the Blazers would be totally cool with other teams signing Darius Miles because they have so much young talent and front office skills? I don't think the Blazers are among those people:

“The Portland Trail Blazers are aware that certain teams may be contemplating signing Darius Miles to a contract for the purpose of adversely impacting the Portland Trail Blazers Salary Cap and tax positions,” Blazers president Larry Miller wrote in the email to representatives of every NBA team. “Such conduct by a team would violate its fiduciary duty as an NBA joint venturer. In addition, persons or entities involved in such conduct may be individually liable to the Portland Trail Blazers for tortuously interfering with the Portland Trail Blazers contract rights and perspective economic opportunities.

“Please be aware that if a team engages in such conduct, the Portland Trail Blazers will take all necessary steps to safeguard its rights, including, without limitation, litigation.”
Threatening e-mails? Really? Yeah, that always works. I'm a bit surprised, it appears that this new ultra-brilliant-fantastic front office has a bit of a crazy streak in them after all. I have also not necessarily heard that they have hired the law firm Ha, Ha & Ha to represent them on this matter. Jokes!

"Ha, who took a good punch in the face from Ned, was screaming, 'I’ll sue! I’ll sue!'"

Agreed. How can I forget when the Blazers put him on the side of a building...
