Re: Darko Milicic considering leaving Celtics to return to Europe
What people don't realise is many players in the NBA, could score more PPG if they took more shots PPG and if they had the minutes. We can use the James Harden example, his numbers has increased this year because he has more minutes and more shots PPG.
Kristic when he had 32 minutes per game, averaged 16 PPG from 52% field, these are good numbers.
I recall when he played at the Celtics at times, he was very efficient in scoring, however the NBA doesn't like 7 foot jump shooters and Doc when went away from high pick and role with Kristic, which was effective.
One of the dislikes of having a 7 foot jump shooter, is that your center is not in a position, to get offensive rebounds.
The NBA is a very tough league to make it in, because if you have the skills, you may not get the minutes or the touches to make a impact.
