Darko Milicic Claps Back at Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony Having Fun at His Expense
- Updated: March 29, 2020
Former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony recently threw some shade at former Detroit Pistons player Darko Milicic, who was the second overall pick in their draft class, during a recent Instagram Live conversation.

Milicic, who lives in Serbia, responded to the comments made by Anthony and Wade through Serbian media.
“About these stories, well wasn’t my story already told, they thank God made it – I didn’t,” Milicic said. “We’re not kids, we’re grown men, I hope you’re mature enough to understand that life is full of rises and falls. Advice to them, because I think of them as more or less the good guys, is to not judge and mock when, thank God you didn’t go through the path that I went through. To them I wish all the best as always and I salute their careers, all the best in further life and lots of success and less judgements.”
In the 2003 NBA Draft, Milicic was the second player picked behind LeBron James, who was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Even though he won an NBA title with the Pistons in 2004, Milicic didn’t live up to expectations and was considered a bust.
He played for five teams during a nine-year career, averaging 6.0 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
