Darko Milicic – “I’ll kill someone on the court” if he has to for the Celtics

NBA training camps have gotten underway this past weekend, with the vast majority of the league holding their annual media day at the start of camp. During a media session for the Boston Celtics Sunday, recently signed big man Darko Milicic dropped some interesting comments regarding his commitment to helping the Celtics win next season:

“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.”

Whoa there, Darko. We get your point, but pre-meditated murder may be a bit extreme. Milicic, 27, has played for 5 teams so far in his NBA career, averaging 6.0 ppg and 4.2 rpg in nine seasons. Darko signed a one-year deal with the Celtics for the veteran’s minimum and is looking to find a role on a Celtics roster already full of front court talent.

With talk like this, Milicic should have a supporter in resident Celtics psycho Kevin Garnett.
