He actually met David Stern once. Yeah David freaking Stern!

Trade Deadline Darko Edition

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!


Any man willing to be on the cover of a national magazine with the title "He's #2" is a guy I want on my team!

3. He is one year younger than Ryan Hollins and almost outrebounds him despite only playing 8.9 minutes a game.


Do you see that hair? Is that seriously not enough to convince he needs to be a Wolf?

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.


Look at his unmatched intensity....plus I think that is a soul patch I spot and that = awesome!

7. He’s tall


I can't be certain but I believe he is palming two basketballs at one time....wow!

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.
