Vujacic Left Slovenian National Team

The Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic has left the Slovenian national team which is preparing for upcoming European championship. The head coach of the Slovenian team decided to release Vujacic because of his knee injury. The coach thinks that Vujacic won’t be in playing shape in time.

    Good for the Slovenian team. Vujajic is the most annoying player in the NBA. He thinks he’s never fouled anyone in his career. You are a joke if you give yourself a nickname…u gotta let others start calling you the Machine.

    I like his hair

    dude, Vujacic had better ball-it-up this season or the jury of public opinion might cause him to explode. Is there ANYONE who likes this guy? He makes Luke Walton tolerable. Hell, even awesome.

    I like Sasha when he’s hitting, and not making Ray Allen look 22 yrs. old again.

  • Seven Duece

    The player in the NBA I’d most like to play one on one. He annoys me so much, I always hope he gets elbowed in the throat.

    this is a good thing for Slovenia

    @Seven Duece…that was some funny s#it you said.

  • Captain Jean Luc-Picard

    He was unimpressive v. Spain. Looks like a freakin’ troll doll.

    Lol, I’ll say it again: Sasha is the least polarizing NBA player. EVERYONE hates him, Lakers fans included.

    Vujachick was just mad he couldn’t fly his favorite LA hairstylist over and expense it to the national team. The machine hates split ends.

    He gets on everyones nerves, that’s why he fits in with the lakers so well.

    The decision to cut him from the team caused a bit of an uproar. It happened once before in a junior national team and it took years for him to agree to play again and now this.

    But there are unconfirmed rumours of a rift in the lockeroom, so it might not have all been injury related.

    THE MACHINE is the dopest cause he’s on the LAKERS!

  • ab_40

    kobe named himself and since this guy thinks he’s the european kobe he named himself “the machine” problem is the machine is out of oil and can’t shoot anymore.

    and he didn’t leave he got cut

    In related FIBA news… New Zealand 100/Australia 78. Wheres Hursty?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    I don’t wanna talk about it Micheal …. Ater didn’t play haha, thats the reason lol.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    ! I joke. Didn’t even know until you wrote that Mike.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    Ohhhhhh yeah! You were at the Sydney game, correct? Tonights game was televised live here… did they show it over there? Or maybe the result was seen as a foregone conclusion?! I mean, 22 points? Wtf? High order dismantling. Your man Ater may not have made the difference. So, rugby, the Ashes… kick an Aussie while he’s down, eh!

  • http://Www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Hursty vs. Mike NZ, all blacks vs. aussies up in here…. Like, flight of the conchords on slamonline, fun. Wonder if Andy Bogut’ll react if i tease him about the result…. Time to find out.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Well Bogut didn’t play either ‘Saber haha. He’s down in Melbourne.
    Pretty sure the game was shown on Fox here, not on free TV.
    And yes, we aren’t doing too well right now in sport in general. Still, we won some medals in the athletics this week, and my dude Steve Hooker went well.
    NZ should’ve won game 1 imo. They were much better in transition and rebounding wise they were doooominant all game. Ingles kept us in it and ahead because whoever guarded him didn’t seem to realise that he was right-handed (lol). NZ WERE ahead by 10pts at one stage too..
    Still, Ater will likely guard Hedo when the Aussies play Turkey on their tour of China – and he’ll guard Yi vs. China if he doesn’t b!tch out to Jersey early. Let ‘The Terror’ show his character against skilled NBA forwards.

    I know Andrew didn’t play, he’s in Vancouver and hasn’t played contact b-ball in 6 months due to that back fracture, but he’s such a patriot (as he should be) so a little teasing will sting him.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    I saw Patty Mills too. He looked like a ghost.. in no way was that intended to be racist, but he looked the shell of a man. Dishevelled and tired. 4 day beard growth. Still on crutches.
    Was a sad sight.
    Boguts not THAT much of a patriot. He cares yeh, but not on the level of some of the other guys in the squad.

    Good lord, can you believe how something gets repeated over and over until it’s “true”? Vujacic did NOT name himself “The Machine”. It was first given by Lakers local TV broadcasters Joel Meyers and Stu Lance. Vujacic is still annoying, though.

  • UnRel

    that’s true jackie..

  • Double J

    We need some more of that OC Lakers stuff that the one kid was posting all last year. That was dope! On and I love machine, well till he let Ray Ray win the fuffin’ series in 08!

  • tavoris

    how can the Lakers keep him now that his own country doesn’t want him?

  • ClydeSays

    …and the basketball world is ROCKED!!!

  • Duncan21


  • nashty

    Great Britain will take him

  • rog123

    Did vujacic leave the team, or did the team just kick him off? Title is misleading
