    This test has been formulated to figure out who has the best feel for Darko's currently existing capabilities (i.e. not long-term potential). The benchmarks used are taken from the 10th-ranked Center in the NBA for each category last season.

    For each right answer, you get 1 point. For each wrong answer, you lose 1 point. Winners will be determined during the All-Star break and will receive a Darko Milicic related item purchased off of Ebay. All votes need to be in before the start of the season.

    Tiebreaker- predict the actual # of points per game he averages to as many decimal places as you want.

    The prize will be something between $10 and $20 purchased off of Ebay and it will be Darko related. It may be a jersey, a signed picture, a bleached lock of hair, a bobble-head, or anything else that I can find.

    I'll sweeten the pot. The Winner will also receive a "Darko Expert" tag on their forum profile, as well as a thread devoted to their Darko Intelligence.

    Cool idea!! I continue to be amazed by the continued interest in this NBAer. I don't believe it will wane anytime soon, either.

    I already voted at the beginning of the thread. Are you able to determine how each of us voted or are we supposed to submit again, before the season starts?

    Once you vote, you can see how everyone else voted. Just remember to submit your ppg tiebreaker guess before Nov 1.

    This poll would be more useful if the numbers were "per game" instead of "per 40 minutes".

    Its not useful in the first place...its just for fun. I think the real fun is Darko's stats AFTER the break.

    This is why it's per 40 and not per game. Having to predict Darko's minutes in addition to the stats would add another dimension to each stat category and confuse the beejezus out of many of us.

    40 is equalized. I think that makes sense.

    I don't want Brian Hill to be the reason that somebody's predictions don't come true.

    My guess for points per game would be 12.5, prior to the All-Star break.

    The only one I think I might be too high on is the rebounds. With Dwight there, DMC will have to really go for them. But then, they were for per/40 minutes. I guess that is OK.

    In the words of the immortal Guilda Radner, "Never mind".

    Dangit Jammer. That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Now I gotta think of a new one.
