To be fair it's not his fault that Joe Dumars had a brain shart and took him over three career All-Stars (Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Bosh) a year after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals. Had Detroit drafted one of those three guys mentioned they would've had a dynasty, without question. Darko won a title with the Pistons his rookie year and was dealt to Orlando during his third. Detroit made it to four straight conference finals after they drafted Millicic. 10 years later and we're still waiting to see something, anything in him that resembles a No. 2 pick. At least he inspired this awesome blog.
