Alan Hahn wrote on his site that Darko was put on the inactive list for the first time this season, and stayed in the locker room the entire game.
What a disgrace to the NBA. What is the point of you being in the league. Atleast Nate cheers on his teammates even when hes not playing (you have to give Nate that, he is supportive) I never felt like Darko was excited to be here. I wish we had Q-Rich back, at least he tried hard every game.
I know very well he was very excited to be in NYC. He is not bad player at all. Especially compared to other players on the current roster. He was doing fine that time he got a chance to play. I don’t know what’s happened after that. He was benched and very badly treated. I cannot see anythig there to be excited about, well beside those $7 mil a year but for those young kids it seems it doesn’t matter that much.<O</O

And that's all I got to say about that
The Knicks always seem to be in that 7-9 spot. It sucks not being good enough to make the playoffs, but not bad enough to get a higher lottery pick.
seriously, how dumb a move was that by dumars?smh.how the **** do you miss that?
the pistons would have had a dynasty.
with a core of billups, rip,prince,melo,wallace and wallace.
If I had a dollar for every dumb ****ing move this organization has made, I could have had Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Carmello Anthony sign lifetime contracts with the Knicks.
It's crazy literally everyone on that draft list has had a better career than Sweatney and Lampe. Even Darko. How the hell the Knicks manage to get the only worthless players from that draft??
SMH signed a 7 footer for nothing mean while our center is 6'9 and cant play d. And our 6'11 top draft pick is on the beach i dont understand this at all. Then we sign a player that didnt play in 4 years, so you telling me you would rather take a player with 2 bad knees over a young top ten draft pick with a better upside then half our roster smh. I never saw a bad team NOT play there young players in my life. I dont care how bad Darko Milicic is, he can play better d then lee with a blind fold on.
Too many BS here. You can't blame Darko for being drafted that high. Not his fault definitely. The worst thing that could happen is to be drafted that high and not to get a chance to play. Plain bad luck. He is just 24 and we have never seen if he is really bad or good. Say (and hate him) whatever you want but he can play for sure, has better understanding of b-ball than 2/3<SUP>rd</SUP> of players on this team and definitely can contribute.<O</O<O</O<O</O

As bad as things are for Darko, I would re-sign him come next season to play backup center. He could be a Luc Longley type center, Darko has skills and everyone knows that. If only he care enough it would make all the difference in the world.
