Now, it seems, we have our answer ... and, as befitting one of the more singular characters in recent NBA history, it's a pretty bizarre one. Lloyd Dobler once famously called kickboxing "the sport of the future," and according to a translation of a report by NBA Serbia, it also appears to be the sport of Darko's future: The top-ranked Serb in the history of the NBA draft, Darko Milicic, will officially become a kickboxer on Wednesday at the Falkensteiner Hotel in Belgrade, when he will officially sign a contract with the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (WAKO). Milicic will sign a contract with Barbara Falsoni, director of WAKO PRO, who will also announce the famous basketball player's first kickboxing match. For the last year and a half, Milicic has not played basketball, but only done individual training and various strength and conditioning programs. There is no doubt he will have a lot of work to do to find his way around in the ring. However, he is not the first Serbian basketball player to dedicate himself to combat sports. Before he did it, so did Igor Rakocevic, former captain of Red Star Belgrade. Yahoo! Sports
