Writes David Roth, “A little context: Serbia lost to Greece in the ongoing FIBA Eurobasket tournament, and apparently whatever Darko Milicic is saying in this clip — he’s speaking Serbian — was so gnarly that he was fined 10,000 Euro for it. Which, with current exchange rates, is I think 1.7 million dollars. Anyway, I don’t speak Serbian, but it’s obvious from watching this that 1) he really shouldn’t be talking like that and 2) maybe he does actually care about basketball a little bit. I sure wouldn’t have guessed.”
Indeed, it’s quite a display, and if Larry Brown ever returns to coaching the professional ranks, he might consider building a team around a big guy with this much passion for the game.
