It’s not what you think (beerfest anyone), but Sasha is competing in a volleyball tournament for a great cause…

DailyBreeze: The Lakers’ Sasha Vujacic is scheduled to compete in the beer bracket, Radcliffe said.

The entry fee is $35, and while it’s a 4-on-4 tournament, there can be five or six players on a team with substitutions. Registration is open at 8:30 a.m. and the event starts at 9 a.m.

The Kim Blankinship Memorial Beach Volleyball Tournament will return to Redondo Beach today for a second year of what promises to be a fun-filled event at the end of Knob Hill Avenue.

A men’s bracket, a women’s bracket and a “beer bracket” are featured at the 4-on-4 tournament, which raised more than $10,000 last year for the Kim Blankinship Memorial Fund.

    lmao, wow

  • lakrfan4life

    hahahaha, go sash!

  • ricky

    good for sasha! but the significant question for lakers fans is if he will still be in purple and gold. thats what the fans really want to know, if he’s still or laker, not that he’s gonna spend a summer afternoon playing freaking volleyball, although he would easily spike the ball back on the opponent. =]

    he better not pull a space cadet

    I agree. It shows he’s very interested in the LA community! Go Sasha!Sasha's Wilson

  • Daryl Imhoff

    If we can not sign Sasha we can go after someone like Mickael Galebale. He hit on 43% of his 3s in limited action with Seattle last year. He is an unrestricted free agent and made $800,000. last year. He is good size for 2 or 3 and is atheletic like Ariza. I believe he is 6’7″ and 215lbs

  • daboss1848

    not very smart – playing volleyball without a guaranteed contract . . . hes getting some bad advice or no advice at all.

  • lskerfan567

    i say if we cant get sasha back, trade luke for martell webster

  • Vanessa

    hope he doesn’t get hurt, but I’m glad he’s showing interest in the LA community. I think he really is interested in staying and I take the no news on him contract wise as a good thing.

  • sclakerfan

    Any news on if he’s gotten any offers?

  • lskerfan567

    THE KINGS ALREADY GAVE A BIG DEAL TO UDIRITH SO I DOUBT THEY’LL BE ASKING FOR FArMER

    Yea we all know how dangerous volleyball can be…It just got rated in the usa as highest injury prone contact sport there is followed by golf, polo, and poker… LOL

  • daboss1848

    stink, ever played? ever watched?

    clearly not – let me educate you oh so disgustingly-named one – ankle and knee injuries are aplenty . . .in fact, basketball and volleyball injuries come at a very similar rate – with football, soccer, and wrestling resulting in higher rates. (Do ur own research in ye shall learn)

    Just messin with ya. it just sounded funny how volleyball can be dangerous!!!!!

  • ab4sure

    In the mens competition Sasha could get hurt, but in the beer bracket the players hold a beer in one hand and hit with the other. The beer bracket players greatest concern is heat stroke. They never try to make digs when playing. I think some wear umbrellas to protect them from the sun.

    how you know this

  • Daryl Imhoff

    Eric Pincus of Hoopsworld wrote a very in depth article on why the Lakers probably won’t be doing much this summer. They hope to go into next year with just about the same team
    However, they may not match the Warriors offer to Ronny. I really think that Ronny is not such a good match for the Warriors, but an important part of the makeup of the Lakers.
    Financially I can see why the Lakers are in a tough situation with the offer to Ronny, especially, when next year’s contracts are negotiated. Ronny is worth 4.25million a year but is he worth 8.5 million the Lakers will have to pay due to the luxury tax.

    I have seen it. They call it the beer bracket becuase it is not a real competitive bracket and many there just mess around.

    The Kim Blankinship Memorial Beach Volleyball Tournament will return to Redondo Beach today for a second year of what promises to be a fun-filled event at the end of Knob Hill Avenue.

    “The beer bracket is for teams that are not serious about winning,” said John Radcliffe, a member of the Kim Blankinship Committee.

    The Lakers’ Sasha Vujacic is scheduled to compete in the beer bracket, Radcliffe said.

    Look at sasha’s knees. Why is it like that??

  • http://thelakernation.com sam

    no sasha, dont do it he’ll get injured

  • DCLAKER

    Let me explain why Laker probably won’t trade…(UNFORTUNATELY)anybody,’cause mitch gave Luke and Vlad extensions in the 07-08 season.Two guys who did NUTHIN’ all year and now we can’t trade’em.

    Lakernation knows these 2 stand in the way of a ‘CHIP..and add MIHM to the list too.
