    Yeah, I kept going back and forth between 15.28145798511 and 15.28145798513 so I decided to split the difference and go with 15.28145798512.

    darko will average 20 pts per 40 min. i believe d. howard will have such a monster season darko will just bomb away out of double teams. he will rarely have to create his shot. some nights d. howard will kill teams and other nights darko will. just pick your poison.

    btw.
    blocks will be 3.5 per 40
    assists will be 5 per 40

    Because he rules!

    Mostly because he plays really hard, and that makes him exciting to watch. He charges to the rim, knocks guys down (while drawing the foul) and almost rips the rim off every single time he dunks. He blocks shots against guys 5 inches taller by sheer force and willpower. He runs the floor. He DOESN"T PASS out of a doubleteam. He isn't that other guy. He is, in front of our very eyes, "going to work" incarnate.

    At least that's why I like him.

    Have you seen him play? If not, I'm sure you'll like him when you do see him.

    He may be an undersized black hole, but he's OUR undersized black hole.

    Technically, I think that is one word and one acronym.

    You can see everyone's positions in handy grid form if you follow the link.

    Since we a few different potential tie situations and is impracticle to have everyone post away with extended decimal point predictions, I'd like to reserve the right to run a tiebreaker if there are indeed ties at the end. It will be simple and fair and may involve a 1 game point guess.

    Anyway, the range of predictions sheds light on why we have never reached a consensus on Darko. But now, the argument will not be settled through debate, but rather by the Serbian Gangster himself. Wait and see. :gun1: :grouphug:

    awesome work ta! wow! that's very cool. i was a little surprised to see the generalization associated with my prediction (intuitively I would have thought I viewed Dartho somewhat more positively), but I think it fits pretty well. and i'm always happy to be riding close to dba in any race revolving around numbers.

    Great work, Ta. I did not classify myself quite as high because I though we were going by the number 10 center in the league, not by the best. But if it worked out that way, I am not ashamed.

    This will be the year that he begins to take his proper place in the scheme of things. At least, it seems as though he controls his own destiny now.

    If he makes it, good, and if he doesn't, it will be his own fault.

    That's all I ever asked.

    The generalizations are a bit of a joke. I'm just having fun.

    I just thought that everyone is probably a little sick of making the same arguments over and over. So, I wanted to break down the different camps out there a little bit and provide a goal line.

    When it is all said and done, we will have 1 official expert who's wisdom should not be misunderestimated.

    I predict Darko will average 7.925342 points per game at the All-Star break.

    Sorry, guys. I thought this was too good a photo to not share:

    Milicic may just be poised for a breakout campaign



    I would have posted it no matter who it is.

    The photographer who shot is said that he went up outside the foul lane. It was apparently a pre-game thing and he wanted to see if he could make it from that far away.

    The photo said it was more exciting than the foul line dunk from a while back.

    That's all I heard about it. I just liked the photo, no matter who was in it.

    Oh, and you have to admit, he can jump higher than even Bill Laimbeer could :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: !!
