it's simple to me. darko isn't a bench player. a lot of people are just looking at stats but darko shuts down the paint. i agree with you lee darko covers lots of ground for a 7' guy. darko routinely makes people miss cause he covers so much ground so quickly and he gets cheated out of a lot of blocks. he does in fact inbound precisely and quickly. he prefers to start and some team in this league will do it without making him jump through hoops to "earn" it. if orlando doesn't get to it soon he will sign with cleveland, miami, lakers, indiana, san antonio, minnesota. he will instantly make them contenders or push them over the top. i'll agree that right now darko doesn't look like that superstar player but he is a pippen type player. match him up with a star and they will both be great. b. hill hasn't figured this one out yet. darko and howard on the court at the same time is one of the best defensive frontcourts in the league.
