Default Re: Darko Milicic to sign with Boston

Damn, they are loaded! But Rondo will almost have to be the best player in the series to take out the Heat; or he, Pierce, Garnett will all have to play like true all-stars, and Terry like a legit 6th man of the year.

Their depth will help them get through the season, but in a 7-game series against the Heat, the stars will have to step it up big time. I like their chances.

I'd be surprised if Darko ends up behind Wilcox on the depth chart. I think Jeff Green will probably back up both the 3 and the 4 while Sullinger plays spot minutes for at least the first half of the season.

This is a great signing for the Celtics, KG and Darko could be a monster defensive duo.

By beat do you mean run over and start punching? Because i don't see how else he's beating anyone (unless him sitting in his chair counts...)

I meant hes more into getting pussy than baskets. I kinda think hes crazy tough, which makes the whole dynamic with KG even better. I dont know what Id rather watch, this or Avery Johnson coaching Blatche.

Yes, a physical beating.






Actually something that bothers me about Darko's career is how the Pistons gave up on him when he was 20. Why not see out his whole rookie contract? Flip Saunders should have spent more time developing him in his 3rd season - he may have had a slightly better career, and would have eventually replaced Wallace as the starting center.

Boston is definitely a contender, I don't see them losing to anyone in the East outside of Miami but they could even beat them imo.

I'm hoping for a Spurs - Celtics finals, so we can see Darko shut-down Timmy D.

I like it for Boston. Centers tend to do good in their system.

If they manage to do away with the Heat, they'll need his size against the Lakers.

We need to counter Indiana, Philadelphia and possibly Chicago before then. Hopefully he's coming to play hard and listen

Nice signing. He is a good shot blocker who will be vital for the 2nd unit. Hopefully he will be motivated come playoff time!
