Darko Milicic finds success in Serbia

If you're like me, you'll have a distinct memory of Darko being the number two overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, just behind LeBron James -- and amazingly ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. What's he up to these days? Sam Borden explores:

Cherries, though, are his vision. The financial return on cherries is tremendous, Darko says, and the market is wide open. When Darko talks about cherries, his eyes get wide. He gets passionate. He gets animated.
"I want to make these cherries," he says during the only moment we are together when he sounds wistful. "I think it's time."

Fascinating glance into a very different path.
