Freed Darko

After taking some pressure of Sam Bowie as "The Worst Number Two Pick of All-Time", Darko mas moved onto the Magic to be paired with a high pick living up to expectations, Dwight Howard. Darko has always been a Blog favorite, and by favorite, I mean I like making fun of him and his frosted-tips. But here's hoping he drops a 30-15 game on us sooner than later, just so the poor guys at FreeDarko are somewhat redeemed in their quest.

“Darko really is one of a kind. He runs the floor, handles the ball, shoots an NBA three and plays with his back to the basket. So you can slot him at the 3, 4 or 5. Okay, a few other guys can do that too; what sets Darko apart is his toughness in the post. You’ve got to love a guy who has the footwork to spin by an opponent but still prefers to lower a shoulder and bang. Fact is, Milicic plays in attack mode at both ends of the floor. The more you push, the more he pushes back.”
