VIDEO: Darko Milicic Helps Wizards Score In The Paint

Darko Milicic's reputation precedes him. Being drafted No. 2 in the 2003 NBA Draft ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, etc. The list goes on. But now Milicic has helped the Washington Wizards score points in the paint by scoring for them.

In the first quarter, Darko Milicic and Al Thornton lined up for a jump ball. Milicic won the tip and sent it behind him, but it bounced around the backboard and into the hoop. Thronton got credit for the basket. The last thing that the Wizards want to do is actually sign Milicic, so having him score on his own basket is the next best thing.
