    This particular awful jump shooter sure had it going last night on short jumpers around the basket.

    Further, the Pistons drafted Darko for his range. If you wanted to use him like Sheed, to jack up a bunch or threes, I bet you would find him more than capable. (Of course, instead Darko has had a series of coaches who will not let him shoot outside shots. Not that Darko was being picked on or anything. Hill in Orlando made Howard quit taking any jumpers.)

    I have personally seen Darko drain threes on the run, like it was nothing. On many occasions. First try. Yes, he can shoot the ball.

    There you go, maybe he needs to be running when he shoots? Actually I have not seen Darko play all year. Have not really thought about him much.

    You are missing out on watching quite a basketball player. Like I said, NBA League Pass is great.

    I love watching the Griz. Strange i know. I still have love for Darko, and Rudy Gay entertains the hell out of me. I also like their quick PG's. I'm curious to see if Crittenton turns out be good.

    As bad as BBeen, on the offensive end, that's a low blow.

    Defense is one half the game. Darko is doing very well in that department this season. And he shows signs of getting his offense to come around. I don't plan to miss any of it.

    If he can hit running three pointers at will, that is a good sign, I guess.

    This is coming from someone who watches every Memphis game, and I have to admit that was a good one. That was cold.

    Wish you were on OUR side.

    Maybe Darko should try to hit running free throws to up his average.

    Can somebody please help me with this! I've been trying to find a youtube clip of Darko hitting a running three pointer but I must be typing in the wrong search terms...

    I did "Darko running three pointer" ...

    "Milicic running three point shot"

    "Darko pregame warmup"

    "Darko for three"

    What am I doing wrong?

    I don't think you are going to find any footage of the running three on YouTube.

    You see Basketbills, even though Darko frequently employs this move to win games, in his native culture, it is considered very rude to humiliate your opponent. Out of respect, Darko has his highlights removed from YouTube to save the opposing players any further embarrassment.
