Darko Milicic

Through seven games in Boston, Milicic’s career with the Celtics consists of one appearance of less than five minutes.

In the past, Milicic would have sulked or complained about his predicament. But today, he seems to better understand that his time to help the Celtics may not come as quickly as he would like it to. And there is a consensus among the C’s and Milicic that sooner or later, an opportunity for him to contribute will manifest itself.

“I just have to stay ready,” Milicic told CSNNE.com recently. “Just be ready to play when I get my chance. That’s all I can do.”
