Sasha "The Machine" Vujacic Gets Cut From Slovenian National Team

sasha_faceAfter a horrible year, we here at have given Sasha Vujacic plenty of grief about his shooting. I wrote an open letter asking where his shot went, and we’ve pretty much unanimously agreed that we’d prefer he was traded or benched.

With the off-season producing many headline-worthy events, Sasha has been quietly practicing with the Slovenian national team in preparation for the summer tournament. Aside from a knee injury that was reported as mild, we haven’t heard much about his experience. Until now.

It appears that Sasha’s mental physical spiritual various problems that prevented him from contributing to the championship effort have followed him to his native country.  He has been cut from the national team, indicating that he is not considered one of the top 12 players in his own country.  From the article: “If he’s not one of the 12 best players in Slovenia, how much can he help the Lakers?”  Ouch.

While this could be attributed to his knee injury, I have to wonder if perhaps he had a fluke year when his contract was up and then went back to his normal mediocre self.

Let’s hope that he bounces back from this ego-bursting year and shows us all that he can succeed through all the adversity. We have a feeling, however, that things will end more like this…
