Sasha Vujacic: an 11-YEAR NBA VET*; a 2-Time NBA champion w/ the Lakers, Sasha was an important part of LA’s run to the top – Phil Jackson’s 8th or so man, Sasha came in to psychologically harass opponents on the perimeter…on both sides: cocky shot-maker & annoying defender; dubbed ‘The Machine,’ Sasha’s always been a long-range shooter and nuisance on D; though it’s nowhere near as consistent, Sasha reverts to his LA days from time to time; still available to cash an open three, will catch fire in an instant on the elbow; had a GOAT moment v. BOS in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals – hit two game-sealing FTs to put LA over the top…nbd

*that’s gotta be sweet for Sasha after bouncing around the league following his ‘glory days’ in LA!
