Not our Darko, not our problem

Posted by: Howard Sinker Updated: October 2, 2012 - 8:06 AM

Darko Milicic has a job after the Wolves decided they didn't want him around. He's the backup center for the Boston Celtics, and he has fire in his ... words.

In an interview with CSN New England, Milicic vowed: "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."

Wolves coach Rick Adelman pretty much exiled Milicic after he was injured about one-third of the way through last season, and he rarely saw court time, even when center Nikola Pekovic had his assortment of ankle problems. Adelman thought Darko was out of shape, among other things.

Milicic said he didn't know what was going on.

"I was trying to find answers," Milicic told CSN New England. "[Nikola] Pekovic, he started playing well. I wasn't asking about starting. I wanted to ask about why I wasn't playing at all. I hear a lot of this and that . . . I was like, 'If you guys going to fool around and make excuses' . . . we kind of separated from each other."
