Additional Information
Darko Milicic's 7-foot-5 wing span (he measured 7- with shoes) was second only to Chris Marcus, who had a shocking 7-foot-8 span..
Chad Ford - ESPN.com (June 9th)
Skill-wise, Milicic may be the best player in the draft. He is not the athlete James and Anthony are, but he is a good shooter whose game is more suited to the NBA than to the European leagues. He would be deadly in the NBA pick-and-rolls, and he is athletic enough to create off of isolations, which are not common in European basketball. He aslo can run the floor and finish fast breaks.

Milicic has the inclination to play tough interior defense, but he does not yet have the body. He can be pushed off the block, though he often recovers to get a hand on shots.  He has to work on some fundamentals, too, like holding the ball high after rebounds to keep from being stripped by strong players.  He'll need work, but the finished product could be every bit as good as James, only in a 7-foot frame
