Found September 30, 2012 on Celtics Life:
As many Celtics Life regulars know, Sasha Pavlovic was known on this website as "The Serbian Assassin." But after reading Comcast Sports Net New England's recent article on Darko Milicic, it looks as though Darko is literally ready to take over that moniker: "I'm done trying to prove I'm the No. 2 pick and that [expletive] stuff," Milicic told CSNNE.com. "This year, it's all about Celtics, to show that I am a team player. It's not about me. It's about us as a team. Milicic added: "I'll do whatever it takes, whatever I need to do to help this team. So now, if I have to go kill someone on the court, I'll kill someone on the court."

He’s played for five different teams and disappointed all of them, with his last coach blasting him for being a slouch.

Darko Milicic will apparently kill someone on the court if he has to

Darko Milicic signed with the Boston Celtics last week, so like most veterans who have underachieved throughout their career Milicic is in “do whatever helps the team win” mode. Because frankly, he’s just happy to be on a NBA roster. Milicic attempted to convey that mindset to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE, and in doing so, he was takes things to a homicidal level. “I’m...

Darko Milicic is not of sound mind

Darko looks huge

I was excited to hear that the Celtics had surprisingly signed Darko Milicic last week. I though he would be out of our price range. For the league minimum the 27 year old 7 footer seemed like a steal. Then all the reports came out of Wolves coach Rick Adelman wanting Darko gone as a top goal of the offseason. How Darko was in poor shape and didn't seem to want it out on the...

Darko Milicic Will Kill You

The poor Buffalo Bills. Its bad enough that they got completely smoked in the second half against the New England Patriots and ended up losing 52-28 but their ball boy got injured diving for a kickoff that went through the back of the end zone. No one circles the wagons..and then watch their wagons be set on fire…like the Buffalo Bills. The NFL officials were back this weekend...
