    Living in NY, I'll get to watch all 82 of DMC's games this year. I'll try to be nice to the rest of the forum, and keep all my comments in this thread. Saw the game tonight, Darko should be starting, and probably will pretty soon.

    Knicks got blown out, but Darko and Gallinari were the only two Knicks to play well. DMC will be starting not because he is that much better than David Lee, but because the Knicks current 3 sucks, and starting Darko will allow Harrington and Lee to shift down to their natural positions, while losing nothing at the 5. With the current lineup, the Knicks get abused defensively at the 3,4, and 5 spots.

    DMC highlights, started off with a nice lefty hook, came back with a spin move, fake and RIGHTY hook! After the righty hook, he gave a right handed "talk to the hand" gesture to the crowd, blew a kiss at his hand, then ran down the court holding his right hand out in the air at the crowd. Truly a classic Darko move.

    In 17 minutes, Darko only Knick positive at +3, scored 4 pts, 7 boards, 3 assists and 2 steals. He would have played more, but left with a bruised knee.

    New team, same old ****. Came in and made is first two shots, and promptly everybody started ignoring him when he was open and in good position. Still had a positive effect on the game.

    But, I am more P.O.d because of the injury. We could have done without that.

    Man, the Knicks' roster is even more ridiculously unbalanced than the Pistons' roster. The Knicks only have 3 guards on their active 12 man active, and all 3 are PGs. Not only that, they start 3 PFs, a SF and a PG.

    Starting Darko would help balance the starting line-up, at least slightly.

    Darko plans European return as he can't get off Knicks bench - NYPOST.com

    Looks like a frustrating chapter in many Piston (and Darko) fans lives will soon be coming to an end. Any of you guys have Euroleague Pass?

    Every time I think of Darko I think of the opportunity lost, but I don't blame the man for simply just not being that good of a player. Good luck in your return home big fella, but don't bother sending me a postcard.

    I'm not a fan of Darko, but I don't hate the guy..

    Some players do it right in FIBA Basketball.. And some Others do it Right in the NBA

    (And some do it great in both)

    LEt's see.. Jennings in Italy was looking really bad.. I mean.. Turnovers, bad shots, bad chocies when took shots..

    BUT

    In the NBA he is playing like a pro.

    Von Wafer was CUT for the European team that he was playing at (I can't remember which team was).. but Last year in Houston he played right.. not outstanding but he didn't sucks.. so.. regular NBA Player.

    And Some European players who were beasts in FIBA Basketball didn't play good enough in the NBA.

    Rudy FErnandez had his games, yes, but in Europe he was outstanding. (But I still think that we should wait to see what can he brings in the next few years..)

    Juan Carlos Navarro (another from Spain) Was not the big player that he was in the Spanish league..

    Walter Herrmann was a little bit old for the NBA.. but he played great in FIBA (Olympics games, World Cups..)

    I Think that Darko can do it better in Europe.. it'll be better for him too.. becouse he'll get bigger contracts and much more minutes.

    This guy is nuts. Someone should just ask him this, 'SIR, do you think you need prove something at practices and probably get some minutes in a real ball game before the team can run the offense through you? And SIR, before everything else just said, maybe playing some defense can help in getting you in uniform in a game instead not dressing at all. And also SIR, playing with some heart may also help in not getting DNP-CD situation'.

    Re: DINKO the future Doorman

    Dinko the long tormented shooting guard with the passers touch fires a shot over the bow of the NBA. Is there a strategy here to leverage some playing time out of the Knicks with his "leaving on a jet plane" declaration?

    Or has he come to the conclusion that Europe is need of 7'1 SG? Is he sensing that with the flashy passing big guard Rubio's soon to be leaving the Euro field, an opening presents itself?

    Or is he bound for a Monte Carlo casino to glad hand the incoming ala Joe Louis the doorman? Or will even his future stint glad handing go the way of forgotten Kit Lave, the 50's Tongan boxer? (The Tongan Torpedo 78-9)

    Darko was named by Sports Illustrated as one of the 10 biggest sports flops of the decade:

    1. The overzealous attempts by Duke basketball players to draw fouls, called "flopping."
    2. The 2004 U.S. Olympic basketball team, which won a bronze medal in Athens.
    3. Barry Zito, who earned a $126 million contract with the San Francisco Giants and has posted a 31-43 record in three seasons.
    4. Monday Night Football announcers
    5. Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis
    6. Darko Milicic
    7. Steve Spurrier, who had a 12-20 record as coach of the Washington Redskins
    8. Former Florida and current Illinois coach Ron Zook
    9. Matt Millen
    10. The NFL Network

    Ex-Piston Darko Milicic named a top flop of decade | detnews.com | The Detroit News

    Ouch! Above Matt Millen?

    I wish we would have drafted the 2004 US Olympic Basketball team instead of Darko!

    Why does the state of Michigan has to own 2 out of the 10 flops? Did any Piston played on the 2004 Olympics? Oh yeah, the coach was coaching the NBA championship team, Larry Brown. Ouch! 3 out of 10.
