This situation in motown with the #2 pick in the draft is like a bad marriage that was doomed from the start. No matter what you say or do it isnt going to get any better. The worst thing that happened for this kid was to be selected by the detroit pistons. Larry Brown isnt going to want some 18 year old european who doesnt speak much english on his team and his way of showing it is to not play the guy. As in any relationship there is always one thing that seals the deal when it goes up in flames and last night had to be that one thing. The pistons were playing the cavs and they were without mehmet okur. For Darko not to get off the bench with elden campbell and zeiko rebracca in front of him is an embarrassment to everyone involved. Joe Dumars needs to save face here and move the kid somehwere where he can play. I know there are a few teams that would love to have him even if he is so young. One more thing, for all the "he's not ready" crowd ,i say, 90 percent of the rookies in the league nowadays arent ready and wasnt it Darko that has been playing against grown men since he was like 14?
