ImageSerbian international center Darko Milicic has again expressed his desire to return to Europe where, according to his statements "he can enjoy basketball again".

Milicic express his wish talking to and Chris Tomasson: "The NBA for me is not the way that I want to be. Looking forward, the stuff that I'm looking for is for me to play and for to me enjoy playing. I think right now the only spot for me is Europe. Because growing up and playing basketball, I needed the ball in my hands. I used to create for myself and I used to create for others. I used to play a lot. That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for. And for me to get that in the NBA right now, I don't think so. And I've got to be real.''

Milicic is disappointed because even after signing for NY Knicks he still doesn't get much playing time and he averages just two points per a game. And all these for a player who was drafted as #2 behind Lebron James and in front of players such as Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and dwayne Wade and getting paid $7.5 million per season.

Milicic continued: "I'm not blaming other people, I'm not crying about it. Basketball is just a game. And stuff happens. If I wasn't the second pick, who knows what would have happened? If I was some other pick, you could look back and say what would have happened. It's past. It's behind me. I'm going to decide after this year what I'm going to do, stay here or go back to Europe and play. I will decide after this season is over … I'll go home and clear my mind … I'll talk to the people that I care about and people who care about me.''

"I never understand why people are still talking about me as the second pick. But I never got a chance to play. Why take me as the second pick if you're not going to play me for three years? They never let me get a chance. I still don't get it … I never asked to be the second pick. I just wanted to play basketball.''

The 24 year old Serb continued: "I've had enough bad experiences, it's coach (Mike D'Antoni's) decision not to play me … It's his team and he's the coach. He's a good coach. But I'm still here and I'm here to help. The NBA has a lot of good players. It has a lot of good big guys and I'm going to be the second guy or the third guy and (one to) play defense. To refresh my career and try to become a better player, it might be Europe … I don't care about money no more. I don't care where I'm at."

"I'll talk to the people and the team and (express) what I want. If they don't want me, then don't take me … I don't care what team and what city and this or that. Can a team play around me? Can I create for other people? Can I create for myself? Can I play this many minutes?''
