dmc was a #2 and everyone thought he was a bust because he wasn't playing. everyone was comparing him to the rest of the people in his rookie class and that's a lot of pressure. if dmc messed up he got yelled at and yanked that's a lot of pressure. by the time darko got extended minutes he had sat for 2 years. he is however scared to pass the ball. you don't have to teach darko how to pass. he started rebounding yesterday. i won't act like he's beind doing that all year. he jacks up shots when called on. he attempts to defend but in the end is just undersized. i'm not hateful. i think other people can't wait to find any little thing to throw venom at darko. when darko is playing well now in orlando nobody wants to talk about it. when our rooks have good games it's the perfect time to talk about darko. that's not cool so that's why i make sure i respond. karma. how much sympathy did lb have for delfino??? i think darko would have been a much happier player if he was sent to the nbdl his first season. darko was 17 when he was drafted so of course he would respond differently than jmax and acker. yes we have a new attitude where the players toughness and attitude is accepted and groomed. under lb this was not the case. different players respond to different types of coaching. darko's a primadonna?? i wish ben had the same attitude as our young kids.
