I don’t like to gloat or find happiness in the misfortune of others, but then again, I really dislike Sasha Vujacic. That’s why when I woke up to this beautifully sunny day in Boston, my Folgers tasted a little better when I read that Sasha Vujacic didn’t make his own country’s (Slovenia) national team. I don’t want any player, friend or foe, to get injured but Slovenia?
Now I’m not really as up on my Eurobasket as I should be, but I don’t remember ever hearing how Slovenia has too many players from which to choose. If you’re a Celtics fan, it’s not hard to appreciate this a little. After all, this is the same guy that wouldn’t wear green after the Celts beat the Lakers two seasons ago. And then there are some gems like this:
“They (Boston) foul a lot. They get away with a lot of fouls,” Vujacic said. “When we go back to Boston, we know that they are going do a lot of moving picks like they do, and they’re probably going to get away with it. But we got to stay smart, stay focused, and play with poise.” (Hooped Up)
I know there are Celtics players that complain to and about refs and talk trash, but those are the players who actually play in the games. I can’t remember the last time I heard about Bill Walker or Brian Scalabrine talking trash in the media or even on the court (well, except for maybe this).
Anyway fellow Celtic fans, I hope this news finds you as well as it did me.
