I have been following this site for years, but so far, I've been perfectly content reading other people's posts and mostly nodding in approval. I have never before been compelled to actually post anything. But this has been frustrating me for months, and during the pathetic and utterly unwatchable Pacers -TWolves tilt last night, I've reached the point of not being able to hold it to myself any longer, so here it is... Darko is an awful, awful professional basketball player. I know that, you all know that - why has it not been openly acknowledged by anyone? Yes, we all make fun of him from time to time - but then we turn around and praise him for an occasional, once-every-five-games effort. This is not acceptable. Any positive contribution he manages to make on the floor is the sole function of him being 15 feet tall and having arms. He has no discernible basketball skills other than being awkwardly tall. He can't catch the ball, dribble the ball, shoot the ball, or handle the ball. He puts up a couple of blocks on a good night, but that does not negate the 10 times each game when he is only expected to make an adequate basketball play, and he thoroughly fails to do so. Pek is a folk hero around these parts of the internet - and that's mostly because he's a Not-Darko. Pek is an average center, but in the age where good centers are a mythical creature, it will more than do. Darko, on the other hand, should be starring in My Giant 2, and not starting for a self-respecting NBA outfit and eating into Pec's (and even Anthony Randolph's) minutes. Not even during garbage time. I understand that this is nothing but a rant, and I realize that nothing will change. But if you agree, you're welcome to join me. All anti-Darko ventings are welcome. In conclusion, Darko is awful.
