Interesting. Check this out:

He called me names on numerous occasions," Vujacic said

Vujacic's unique resume that already featured being choked by Carmelo Anthony now includes being called by Paul a five-letter word that starts with "B."

That's what Vujacic said Paul called him late in New Orleans' victory over the Lakers on Tuesday night.

"He called me names on numerous occasions," Vujacic said.

For yelling back at Paul - even though Vujacic insisted all he said was: "What did you say?!" - Vujacic got a technical foul from referee Joey Crawford. (Then Vujacic got an earful from teammate Kobe Bryant, who was more than a little peeved that this game in which he was so absurdly hot with his shot was slipping away.)

You could see Paul did say something to Vujacic that got his attention as early as the first quarter. Vujacic had come into the game and immediately hit a 3-point shot over Paul, but Paul answered with a jumper over Vujacic as the shot clock was expiring.

Next time down, Vujacic was called for a foul for slapping Paul's raised arm on a jump shot so hard that Paul fell to the floor, and Paul got up yapping.

That was the first of three fouls called on Vujacic in the span of a minute and a half, another source of his frustration. Vujacic wound up committing five fouls in just 10 ½ minutes in a game that Lakers coach Phil Jackson described as "Sasha not being able to compete tonight because of foul troubles and other things going on with him."

It left Vujacic, always emotional and prideful, more than a little bitter about the defeat, the Lakers' first loss in three meetings this season against the Hornets.

"It's one game," Vujacic said. "We're playing for a championship. They might be playing for this game."

It is true that New Orleans coach Byron Scott had motivated his players by saying they needed to prove they could beat the Lakers, but that was hardly the extent of Vujacic's implication.

Then again, considering Vujacic so openly assesses that the Lakers are better than the Celtics, why not declare obvious superiority over the West's next best team, too?

And on the off chance that the Lakers don't face the Hornets or the Celtics in the playoffs, there is a subplot for when Crawford officiates postseason Lakers games, too.

"It's just hard to play when you play against more than five people on the floor," Vujacic said.

Vujacic said he has never had any previous problems with Crawford, who called most of Vujacic's fouls. Without making a direct comment about the officiating, Vujacic also said: "The way everything went was disgusting" and "I'm ashamed (by) what I saw tonight."

Vujacic said he intends to have the Lakers submit video footage of the game to the NBA office about "the calls on me and everything ... I would love to review everything that was going on."

There was certainly a lot going on in this game for the Lakers, whose 15-game home winning streak ended.

Paul drove into the lane and hyperextended Lamar Odom's right knee - and even though a simple hyperextension isn't too bad, you should know that this is the Odom knee in which tendinitis had begun to act up again.

Odom sat out much of the team's practice in Memphis 2 ½ weeks ago to treat the knee, over which he has been wearing a sleeve in games, so it was already vulnerable.

Odom had enraged Jackson earlier in the game for not recovering from a pick to defend a West jumper, but the Lakers ultimately missed Odom's defense in West's 40-point game. Bryant was, as stated earlier, growing so frustrated late in the game that he started lecturing Pau Gasol how to defend West better.

Bryant barked at Gasol to get all the way up on the hot-shooting West, which Gasol did the next time - and West missed on a drive. When West drove again, Gasol reached in for a foul, which had Bryant second-guessing Gasol again for an unnecessary slash.

After the game Bryant had cooled down but still had some advice for Gasol, whom Jackson said should've gotten more scoring opportunities in the second half. Said Bryant: "He feels uncomfortable just catching and shooting. I tell him, 'You can shoot the ball 25 times. If you catch the ball and a guy's hands are down, just shoot it.' "

Bryant came away gushing about Paul, who had 32 points, 15 assists and no turnovers.
"I've never seen anything like that, ever," Bryant said.

Bryant referred to Paul as "the little fella" and added laughingly about his Olympic gold-medal teammate: "He hates when I call him 'the little fella.' "

Vujacic hates what the little fella is calling him a little more, I think. As much as Bryant adores Paul, this is a rivalry on the rise.

There were rules that were made because of Wilt Chamberlain. Then we had the Jordan Rules. Now CP3 seems to get all the calls, so there's a new set of rules for him. Sasha should know that and keep some distance between himself and the little fella. If the little fella creates contact by lowering his shoulder into Sasha, the little fella's going to get the call every time. Now Sasha, who complains on every call and now will elevate his level of complaining by whining to the league office that someone called him a b-tch. Maybe he is one. Hey, imagine if the refs and David Stern actually liked Kobe the way they love LeBron, D-Wade and CP3? Oh my. More free throws. More Ws.

damn sasha acts like a female, man. damn!!! no wonder why other teams call the lakers soft.

trash talking is part of the game, sasha mad cuase he said "What you say to me?" and got a tech. for that! wtf, dude Cp-3 gotta get of that high horse of his, i mean, in 06, he was nothing just a good player, he makes all-star team cause kobe got hurt, boozer got hurt, yao was hurt, and B-Roy, Cp-3 and David West are all cocky like they something in the league!

you make no sense on why he made the allstar team becuz all of those players you mentioned were still playing in the allstar game regardless of injury...i think your just a hater, personally.

to be fair to sasha, he isnt from the U.S. originally so he doesn't completely get the culture, but I think he was more angry with Joey Crawford, and he knows enough to know that Joe is controversial, but the more players that dislike sasha the better, i love when he starts to annoy, oh yea, and if Kobe got calls like the "darlings" of the NBA offices" the young guys", then we would have more championships. Maybe Kobe would have 6, no BS
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

I never liked Chris Paul. I see his story, where he came from, what he's about and he seems like a nice guy but that cockiness and that attitude where he believes "I am better than you" is what I don't like about him.

I'll be on Sasha's side in this battle even though, honestly, being called names is a silly thing to be angry about. I almost think Sasha has this "everyone vs. me" mood right now because of the way he is struggling when it comes to shooting, the refs are always calling stupid fouls on him, and he's heard the rumors that he could get traded(they were awhile ago but it could still be stuck in his head). He's just feeling a lot of pressure right now. The way Sasha is struggling and going about it reminds me a lot of former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer's last year in Denver where his job was on the line and even though they were winning games, he was always pointed out as not good enough. Hopefully, it's a different ending though.....

were u not around during Shaq's era with the Lakes and a couple years after he left? kobe avg. like 10+ free throws and he would get the calls by doing silly things just like "the young guys" now ex. him pump faking and the defender jumps in the air and kobe deliberately jumps into him causing a foul even though Kobe jumped into the defender...i think its just that the refs know what to look for now and kobe's tactics bcuz alotta the stuff he used to doesnt work as well as before.

If more people had that attitude they'd succeed. I've never understood what's so wrong about that. You don't compete in something, especially sports, just to be a nice guy who sprinkles magical fairy dust and grants everyone's wishes.

And lol @ the refs calling "stupid" fouls on him. Sasha is one of those players who foul A LOT and complain about every single call. Most players at least admit it when they get caught with their hand in the cookie jar, but Sasha could hit a guy head on and leave his head leaking and still complain if it got called.

Judging from your user name, avatar, and sig, though, you're obviously a big Sasha fan. lol

Dam this is why its hard for me to like Sasha. He whines like a little girl. He has no reason to complain, he is a foul machine. And complaining that Chris was being "mean" to him is just stupid. Man up and take it out next game
