Darko Has Had Enough of the NBA

by November 30, 2009

It’s one thing to be glued on the bench in Detroit; it’s an entirely different thing when you’re going through the same motions in New York: ”The NBA for me is not the way that I want to be,” said Milicic, averaging 2.0 points and 8.9 minutes while having been benched for eight of the Knicks’ 16 games, before not playing in his team’s 128-125 loss to Denver at the Pepsi Center. “Looking forward, the stuff that I’m looking for is for me to play and for to me enjoy playing. I think right now the only spot for me is Europe. Because growing up and playing basketball, I needed the ball in my hands. I used to create for myself and I used to create for others. I used to play a lot. That’s the kind of stuff I’m looking for. And for me to get that in the NBA right now, I don’t think so. And I’ve got to be real.”’
