The thing in Europe is many players don't get minutes. Martynas (long last name i can't remember) Is thought to being a top 3 pick in the draft even though he's not dominating. The draft is about potential and Petro has that. Remember, in Europe the veterans get the most followed by NBA draft snub college students, then young guys.
i tried looking at his stats in europe, and i couldnt make them out because they were in a foreign language (so maybe someone can get firsthand info and confirm them), but from what i could tell hes not doing much in europe. if he cant dominate in europe, whats he gonna do here.
But they don't get any time. And there is no way Darko can be a bust already. The guy gets garbage minutes in usual Piston blow outs. He is still a very special player. He just needs time and veteran coaches such as Larry Brown usually don't play rookies. What about big men here? Michael Olowokandi was drafted 1st he put up incredible numbers and did he live up to expectations? What about Kwame Brown, Eddy Curry and Tyson Chandler. Haven't they been dissapointing to a certain degree?
darko milicic. what about that guy from greece sofokolis shorstiantis or something, the "baby shaq" - whats he done? we shouldnt get so enamored with big men who we know nothing about and cant even dominate in europe.
