Yeah I didn't know his timing was so good.Most foreign players are not good shot blockers.If he was a little quicker it would be nice.Maybe he can lose about ten pounds.

Darko definitly looks pretty good. He's got some nice post moves, look a little rusty but nothing the Grizzlies coaching can't fix. With the right training and if given significant minutes then he could become a much better player.

Not sure he is the man to be in the paint with Gasol, but he was the best center option in the market. He should improve a lot this year since he will have a lot of minutes. Let's see.

If he's given the right amount of minutes then I can see him improving and maturing quite a bit as a player. Hopefully he can do something productive for the Grizzlies.

I'm not sold on that he will improve, and I know he is 22, but he didn't improve at all from his first season in Orlando to his second. I will be really happy if I'm Milicic proves me wrong here though.

What I'm sure is that this was a good signing. Grizzlies desperately needed a big man, and Donny Darko was one of the better in the FA market. I think it's safe that even in the worst case scenario, he won't get worse than he is right now, and that isn't too bad.

I was just thinking about it.Cause when david robison and tim duncan played they were the two towers.Im not saying they are equal in talent to those two.The towers were great at defense and protecting the paint.They need some sort of tag team name
