So, were you too busy to catch Darko in action against the Trailblazers tonight? Have no fear, the DarkoRules blog has a replay available for you. Just stare at the picture at left for exactly 48 minutes and you will have basically recreated the experience. (The pic is actually from a previous season, but it may as well have been taken tonight.) Yes, Darko sat on the bench for a SECOND STRAIGHT GAME. So much for getting playing time in the second half of the back-to-backer.

Detroit won the game and is still undefeated, and that is a good thing, but there is a huge problem with Darko's DNP. Try as I might, I could not muster up my usual silver lining for this game. Milicic got dissed, pure and simple. Flip is possibly turning into the second coming of Larry Brown (although he is still undefeated at 6-0 following tonight's win, while Brown is 0-5 following tonight's loss).

Joe Dumars, it's time to have a sit-down chat with Flippy and make sure all of that talk about playing Darko wasn't lip service. The future of the franchise is at stake here!

have you noticed ever since darkos new horrible hairstyle, he has not been playing? all of a sudden he has this greasy slicked back italian hair style, and now hes not getting playing time.

until darko gets a hair cut, and stops looking like such a creep, i say flip should bench him.

Well, Darko actually played nearly 16 minutes against Toronto with that hairstyle. I actually suggested that the hair would be the thing to propel him to MVP status, but with his subsequent benching, I am no longer so sure... we'll see how things play out.

is there anyway we can tell this kid to get a haircut? im being honest, i have had darkos back the past three years, and i have supported everything he has done...besides his choice of hair-do's. the peroxide blonde hair was horrible, and it was even worse when his natural hair started growing in. i didnt mind it at the begining of the season at all, but now it is just creeping me out. he needs a buzz cut or a trim. its out of control
