    I'm not sure if anyone "misses" Darko.

    ..especially euro refs and their families.

    Oh, come on, Low, he was heads above Battie for Magic last season. He's a better player. And while he may never reach so-called "stardom", he'll be a solid contributor on his team.

    I don't miss Darko, but I sure miss that #2 pick we had back when it was shiny and new and full of promise. :crying:

    Obviously not seeing as how he was benched for one Tony Battie.

    I'll consider Darko a solid contributor when he actually becomes a solid contributor. How many coaches have to bench this guy before he stops getting the benefit of the doubt?

    Maybe our collective obsession of granting Darko the benefit of the doubt comes from the fact that most of the roster that won the ship in '04 was existing of players that actually got benched or underrated until they were formed to a group that won it all.

    darko hasn't truly been given a chance by any of those coaches who've "benched" him. 2 out of 3 of those coaches were fired the year after the job they did with developing darko. i watched lots of orlando games darko outplayed tony battie on a regular basis. so this showed me it was the coach and not darko.

    which solid contributor did orlando go to in the 4th in game 4 of the playoffs??
    dwight howard??? no
    tony battie?? no
    grant hill?? no

    orlando went to darko milicic. i think that coach was trying to save his job.

    they lost. if they had been going to darko all series it may have turned out differently. the offense should have been ran through darko instead of howard.

    Do you think the Grizzlies will be smart enough to run their entire offense through Darko?

    It looks like Darko has bulked up this past summer. I hardly recognized him at first.

    Is that a Grizz or just a big Brown bear?
    Don't try and fake me out.
    Could it be a Kodiak?

    the griz should run the offense through pau gasol. i do however think darko should get plenty of shots. i haven't seen the new grizzlies offense yet but i'm sure it won't be like orlando's slowdown and drop it in the post to a guy with no post moves offense. i said orlando should run it through darko because darko is a better fit for that style than dwight "turnover" howard.

    Now that is one of the most intelligent things I have read from the pro-Darko side in quite some time. An argument that is plausible and makes sense.
    If no one replies, you will probably fake yourself out! :D
