    Oh no, it's the Darko consipracy! lol.

    Seriously, Coach Hill said that Darko still needs to learn the system before he gives him meaningful minutes. Too early to accuse Hill of not seeing Darko's "true all-star potential" yet. ;)

    Yes that can potentially be a real problem for them. Pistons did have trouble with Darko's night life when he was here.

    Detroit being Darko's nigtmare would be most folks dream come true... the salary... rock star status and playing basketbal (albeit practice)... that comment was not called for... didn't he grow up in a war zone?
    I promise you he learned more under these two coaches than he could have in college.... and now he's gonna put out the effort in Orlando?
    I think he was purposely dogging it to force a trade.
    If he was better than Dice he would have played more.

    Re: Darko Arrives

    Vince Carter revisited?

    Yeah, his idea of a nightmare is much, much different than mine. I would trade places with him in an instant. Let the fans jeer me, 12 million dollars and the best seat in the house for Pistons games + playoffs? Wahhh.

    No, no, no. This reporter's got it all wrong. Maybe he misunderstood the accent. It was: "I fell asleep on the bench." No wonder the kid's having nighmares.

    Micro on Arroyo:
    I don't think so. The AFC don't care about winning unless it's the Olympics. They will be happy just to see Yo-Yo on the floor. To them, THAT is equivalent to winning the title.

    Re: Darko Arrives

    Darko got a DNP tonight... the more things change the more they stay the same.
    Arroyo played a lot of minutes.... he did alright considering he didn't know all of the plays.... Kid backed him down a few times... and Carlos still can't finish his shots... he actually had a chance to tie the game at the end and missed the 3.

    I guess TDrib already knows the system.

    Re: Darko Arrives

    Thats interesting because in the Orlando paper Brian Hill said the 4 mins Darko played last game would be the fewest mins for him this season. Some things never change.

    Call me a hater but I am hoping he is a bust down there because thats going to help our cause getting a better draft pick. Why should I feel anything for a 20yr old millionair? Especially one who insulted the team on his way out. Kidd does not have to work another day in his life if he chose.

    Re: Good Luck Darko

    good point.

    Is Darko perhaps slow to learn? This is two games now where he hasn't played.

    I agree. I have no loyalty to Darko. I hope he busts. It benefits us in the long run.

    Re: Good Luck Darko

    After Darko played four minutes in his first game, Bob Hill said "That's the fewest minutes he'll see all season." Naturally he got a DNP - CD against the Nets last night. I guess the "nightmare" continues.

    (Not that I mind much, given the way Darko popped off in his interview. The real nightmare would have been his standing in the league if Joe D. hadn't stuck up for him EVERY SINGLE TIME people questioned him. Kid should just shut up and show a little class, instead of sabotaging his own position by getting a sunburn on the beach before his first practice with a new team.)

    Re: Good Luck Darko

    yeah you would think he'd see plenty of time against the nets who have an especially weak frontcourt...

    Re: Darko Arrives

    I love how Brian Hill says DMC has to learn the system. When you have as many injuries as Orlando, and are destined for the lottery (again), there is no freaking system. That's why Arroyo played. They needed a guard, he got to play. No one worried about teaching him the system before he hit the floor.

    And wasn't that scrub Mario Kasun playing his tail off last night? Maybe Darko's arrival lit a fire under him. We'll see, because I don't think Tony Battie is going to roll over and hand out his starting job.

    Anyway, the next week or two should prove telling because Orlando has a lot of walking wounded. Can they find consistent minutes for Arroyo and Darko? Stay tuned...

    Kasun is out for the season.

    One less obstacle for Darko to conquer.

    Re: Good Luck Darko

    Maybe there was too much smoke rising up from his face to see straight.
    And if someone caught him across the face he would be all stinging.
    TDrib played 23 minutes 13 p 4 r 4 a. I think he does know the system.

    Re: Darko Arrives

    Hill is going to f'up and Darko is going to LA. Just like Shaq. Zen master knows exactly what to do with him. Let him swing until he goes down.
