Draft bust of the past seven years
yea kwame is also..but im pretty sure his stats are better then darkos..i could be wrong though ill go check after this..both are pretty big bust..id say darko more so since you could have had wade bosh carmelo...3 potenial hall of famers
Kwame's stats are a little better, with scoring and rebounding, but Darko is a better shot blocker, good point about the hall of famers, Kwame's draft was pretty terrible, i don't think Washington's kicking themselves for not drafting Eddy Curry
i change my mind about drako..hes more of a bust then i thought.,.i though it was 2 teams he wasnt that good with..he wasnt that good with mem orlando and det...and now some people are guessing he will just get better with his fourth team??...he may have a fulls gold season since the offense in ny is run and gun in which anyone can score...also there career shot blocking averages...kwame..1.0..darko..1.2
Up to this point in time, I think by every measurement, Darko Milicic is a draft bust. However, the book isn't closed on this guy because he's still only 24, he's 7 feet tall, weighs around 275 pounds, and is an excellent jumper for a big man.
He had games in Memphis and Orlando where he scored in double figures, blocked 5 or 6 shots, and grabbed double digit rebounds. In order to do that in the NBA, it requires big time talent and he has it. That's why Dumars drafted him with the second choice. Unfortunately he only plays up to his potential in short bursts, while in most games he does essentially nothing.
I don't know why Milicic is so inconsistent, but I suspect he's been in two terrible situations that shattered his confidence. First he was an 18 year old kid on a star studded veteran Pistons team where he was completely lost. Most recently, he was on a team in Memphis where nobody understood the team concepted. Most of the guys who played regularly in Memphis lived by the shoot first principle, which meant big guys in the post rarely touched the ball.
Now he's in a great situation in NY and it's up to Milicic to prove he can still become a dominant NBA center. If he fails in NY, there will be no more excuses. More importantly, we'll should find out if his lack of production in the past was a result of his team situation or a lack of drive and desire on his part.
everone has talent in the nba..it doesnt take big time talent to do that sometimes..it takes big time talent to do that consistantly which he cant..even damon jones scored a bunch of point every blue moon
