Cleveland Cavaliers forward Darius Miles met exclusively with InsideHoops.com at the end of the summer league in Boston to discuss his own quest for physical fitness as well as new teammate LeBron James.

InsideHoops.com: These last few months, what have you been up to as far as basketball is concerned?

Darius Miles: Working out. I started working out May 1, Monday through Saturday. Every day working on my leg, my jump-shot.

InsideHoops.com: Last year you added muscle and gained weight

Darius Miles: Last year I weighed like 225. I weigh like 233 right now. Last year during the season I weighed like 225, all muscle. Now I'm like 233, all muscle, everything's cut up man, and I'm feeling good. I'm feeling great.

InsideHoops.com: What was with the leg issues last year?

Darius Miles: Last year my legs couldn't take my weight, so every time I would jump... but now I weigh like 233, and now my legs are strong and can take my weight, so I'm alright.

InsideHoops.com: So what's the next step for you and your game?

Darius Miles: (Grinning) Coach told me I ain't going to make the all-star team this year, he said I should make it next year.

InsideHoops.com: That's your prediction?

Darius Miles: (Grinning) Yup.

InsideHoops.com: Talk about LeBron James. What have you noticed?

Darius Miles: I think he played great these two weeks. He's very mature. He played great these two weeks, to be 18 years old, playing with grown men.

InsideHoops.com: What kind of things have you told him?

Darius Miles: Keep your confidence up. Stay confident. He's the leader on the team. I just came down here to just support him. I told him he's the leader on this team, I ain't really suppossed to be here (at the Boston summer league). Keep your confidence up and do your thing.
