"I'll do whatever it takes, whatever I need to do to help this team," Milicic said, via CSNNE.com. "So now, if I have to go kill someone on the court, I'll kill someone on the court."
OK then, Darko. Seems pretty straightforward. Darko Milicic is going to murder someone in cold blood in a basketball game if he has to. So don't push him. Because he'll do it. He will.
Here's the thing, though: If you want to impress Garnett, you don't do it by running your mouth. You do it by actually doing your job on the floor. Because Darko doesn't exactly have a sterling on-court resume. He has been a total draft bust and mostly an NBA punchline during his career. He's a sneaky good post defender and rebounder, but he never has developed the skill set that so many thought he would.
Obviously Darko isn't talking in a literal sense here, though. Because if he was, that would be bad. Still, it's just basketball and sometimes going that far with your talk isn't the best thing to do. Nobody takes Darko that serious anyway, but talking about killing anyone isn't the coolest thing to do. Especially when you're not exactly the most intimidating player out there to start with.
Darko's goal for the season needs to be actually getting on the court, anyway. Kind of hard to do any murdering if you're stuck on Doc Rivers' bench.
