Many of us use financial banks to save our money. It’s practically considered a way of life and has been for generations.
However, for Minnesota Timberwolves center Darko Milicic, keeping his money in a bank was never an option. According to former NBA basketball player, Casey Jacobsen, who currently now writes for SLAM, Darko Milicic always had trouble trusting any bank with his money. I hear you Darko, who does nowadays?
In the words of Jacobsen:
It’s nearly impossible to explain the weirdness that is Darko, but he told me one time that he did not keep his money in any bank, nor did he invest in stocks or bonds. “I just keep it,” he told me and then turned away. Looking back, I should have asked a follow-up question. I don’t know if I believe him, but he was making over $6 million that season. On another note… that was easily the longest conversation we ever had, and that was how he preferred it.
It would be interesting to know exactly where Darko Milicic hides his money. The Serbian basketball player has made roughly $42 million dollars playing in the NBA. That’s a whole lot of money to be stashing in a closet and rolling in rubber bands.
You can’t explain it, but like Jacobsen said, “that is Darko.”
