Darko! To Auction Off Championship Ring

For as much flak as Darko Milicic has received since becoming a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. . .and, really, since becoming a member of the NBA. . .he's doing something quite awesome for a good cause.

Darko won a championship ring in 2004 with the Detroit Pistons, and he has decided to auction that ring off for a charitable cause. The proceeds will go to benefit the Zorana and Darko Milicic Fund for Children With Life Threatening Diseases.
