0

I’m sure most people have fond memories of former No. 2 overall pick Darko Milicic. Ahh, I’m just kidding, Milicic might be the worst draft pick in Detroit Pistons history. Milicic has since retired and he’s going to pick up…kick boxing? Milicic will sign a contract Wednesday to become a professional kickboxer in his native Serbia.
