Darko Milicic is a professional again!… Just not in basketball

You can make the argument that the Detroit Pistons selection of Darko Milicic in 2003 was the worst selection in NBA Draft history. It’s not only because Darko was a complete flop, but probably more so about the players that were taken after him, which were just some guys named Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade.

After leaving the Pistons, Milicic became a journeymen, and declared he would be leaving the NBA for good just a few months ago. Do not fear though, as Darko has found a new profession. Something that involves incredible poise, and athleticism. Something LeBron only WISHES he could do.

Darko is a professional…fisherman. No, seriously. In fairness, he seems to be at least semi-successful, as he will compete in Italy at the 2013 World Carp Classic.

My first instinct was to say that this is the most success Darko has ever had professionally, and then I remember he has an NBA Championship ring. Then I remember that he did nothing to earn that championship ring, and I go with my first instinct.
