The trade deadline is fast approaching and the new names being linked to Minnesota are Darko Milicic and Tyrus Thomas. Both of these guys have expiring contracts if Minnesota chooses to let them go, both are still young, fairly athletic, and…..and……and…..and did I mention athletic?
Believe it or not I like the idea of Darko better than Tyrus Thomas. Sure Tyrus is extremely athletic and could potentially be a rebounding machine. I will even give you the fact that Tyrus’s worst year was still probably better than Darko’s best. All valid points but come one you got to bring stonger arguments than that! Get that weak crap out of here! I will give you ten reasons you trade for Darko and not Tyrus
1. The 2003 draft went as follows:
1. Lebron James
2. Darko Milicic
3. Carmelo Anthony
4. Chris Bosh
5. Dwyane Wade
6. Chris Kaman
I mean look at that list and tell me this kid is not bound for greatness. Everybody in the top 6 went on to be all stars with the exception of Darko. It’s his turn folks!
3. He is one year younger than Ryan Hollins and almost outrebounds him despite only playing 8.9 minutes a game.
5. He has shown flashes of his talent while with Orlando. If he can match what he did there he would be an improvement over the production Minnesota is receiving at center now.
7. He’s tall
9. He can handle the ball for a 7 footer fairly well and has a decent shot.
If those aren’t good enough reasons for you then I don’t know what to say.
