With the NBA Draft just around the corner, one of the biggest busts in all of sports has called it a career in the Association.
According to FSD Detroit who cites a Serbian website, Darko Milicic has announced that his NBA career is in deed over.
The 7-foot Milicic, taken with the 2nd overall pick in 2003 by the Pistons was a complete flop from the beginning. With Detroit, the human victory cigar averaged just 1.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 2 1/2 seasons with the Pistons. After he was traded Milicic’s career still failed to get going spending his remaining NBA days between Orlando, Memphis, New York, Minnesota and Boston.
The Celtics would be his last NBA stop as Boston released Darko back in November after just one appearance.
And when it was all said and done for him, Milicic averaged just six points and four rebounds in 438 NBA games.
But despite winning the NBA Championship in 2004 and a failed Rasheed Wallace block from winning a second one in 2005 the Darko pick was something Joe Dumars has never lived down. This is especially the case when Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade all went behind him back in 2003.
So with all that said let’s take a look at Darko’s finest NBA moments…
Have a good night everyone!
