Garbage article... nothing to see here, let's move on...

Sasha has to force shots to get points. Jordan and Trevor are to busy trying to be starting positions, that sometimes they come off as ball hogs. Anyway, if Trevor wants to talk smack , who last season was our most scrappy player, who won us games by not giving up on seemingly lost plays? Who played about a month, fell in practice, broke their toe, and was largely insignificant when he came back?

I agree. He's acting as if his poor play should be excused as if he's still trying to get back in shape and whatnot. That stage should be over by now.

Even despite all the great play and a league best record, we're missing something that we had last year. It's Sasha's energy.

He went from one of the best role players in the league to just another MF on the court and that ain't cool.


We're not missing Sasha's energy. It's still there. But he's not getting much playing time. All that playing time that he was getting last year is being given to Ariza and Farmar. If Ariza keeps playing the way he has been, he deserves it. Farmar, <_< . I still think that playing time should be given to Sasha.

Just my opinion.

Jordan Farmar is playing better then Sasha Vujacic , watch the games!!
Infact here are Vujacic's stats 5.2ppg and an awful 38% fg.
Team Farmar

Team Pau

Team Ron Ron

I do watch the games and Farmar is playing well. But leave him in long and he starts doing stupid stuff.

Sasha will have a big game today. I guarantee it.

Let me tell you what happened....

Our team is the best in the league, and this writer is as bored as hell because he can't find anything to write about the Lakers. So what he does, is find any little thing he can pick on a BLOW out of proportion.

Seriously, nothing happened. Ariza got a little heated and that is all.

ON THE OTHER HAND, Sasha has not impressed me at all and I would seriously consider trading him. He has gotten lazy and just doesn't care anymore. I am thinking that he only played well last year because it was his contract year.

You don't have to like it but the truth is the truth. Trevor isn't anybody important.

You can dislike Sasha all you want and maybe, he shouldn't take some of the shots he takes but that does not give Trevor any authority to get in his face.



If it were Kobe, half of you would be talking about how "bad of a leader and a teammate" Kobe is. In fact, when LO did some STUPID things and cost a game a few years back, people were HIGHLY upset with KOBE (the franchise player) getting in LO's face about it.


Talk about backward thinking.


Let the captain and Coach handle this. Trevor needs to chill out and play his position...captain? No. Coach? No. Vet, even? No.

You're no-bo-dy, til some-bo-dy, "hates" you....

Incredibly bad form, on Ding's part, to try and draw some parallel between this situation and Kobe/Snaq.

Not remotely similar.

You would trade him!?!? :nervous:

I don't think he's gotten lazy, he's just pressing. Maybe he feels pressure from how well Ariza is playing. But he'll pick it up.

I agreed with all the other stuff you said though. :lol:

A Cutler and a Plummer fan agreeing? *gulp* :nervous:

I would trade him for someone IF his current form continues.

Ever since that mysterious training camp injury, something's been up with Sasha.

Don't confuse in-game passion with tension.

It's no biggie.

It isn't at all. Sasha passes that shot up, non issue.

Also, it's good to see the guys with a little fire. They want to win, and win right.

Trade Sasha? Really?

He's coming off an injury and playing less minutes. What do you expect?

He's fine and so is our chemistry.

lol, people COMPLETELY overreacted to this article. Don't bash Kevin Bing, who's one of the best journalists out there, for simply reporting the incident. I mean actually read what he wrote, he didn't try to make the incident seem bigger than it was. He just told what happened. He didn't suggest more problems in the future or any type of ish like that or tried to cause even more drama with false quotes or ANYTHING.

Calm down, please.
