“I know I can score 20 or 30 points anytime I want,” Vujacic said, as reported by the Newark Star-Ledger. “But I’m not that kind of a guy. I want to win. I want to play the right way. Some games I’m going to get 10 shots, some games 15 shots; sometimes, especially coming off the bench, you’re going to feel cold, and you need time to get in the rhythm. But right now, what I care the most is for us to become a better team. And we are really capable of doing that.”
The occasion for the media attention given Sasha and his subsequent verbosity was a glorious 103-101 overtime win for the New Jersey Nets over the New Orleans Hornets last Wednesday. Vujacic went for a career-high
40 points 35 points 25 points.
The Slovenian was also looking great in the post-game interview.
Really, BiE congratulates Sasha and the Nets for this
statement important much-needed win, though remains skeptical of Vujacic’s potential as a LeBron-level scorer. Tell you what, though: He’s definitely at Hoylesque levels.
