PLAYERS: Darko Milicic
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Darko Milicic believes his NBA career is completely over. Milicic began the 12-13 season with the Boston Celtics and asked for his release so he can return to Europe to attend to his ill mother. Milicic finished the season with KK Red Star Belgrade. "No more chances," said Milicic to mvp.rs. "This is a done deal. Bygone. Hence I wear a lot of bad experiences. Guilt is mutual, it was bad moves with their with my hand. However, is not worth more to talk about. They think they should to play a supporting role and wait for his chance. Understand why they have such an attitude. My NBA career speaks to me for such a player, and I know I'm not."
