It's been too long since we've had something on Sasha Vujacic(notes) here at BDL, in part because it's been too long since the mad geniuses at Lakers-Fan.com have created a hilarious video starring the half-human, half-machine, all-hair gunner. Perhaps this (unfortunate) news will get the creative juices flowing.
According to The Machine's official website, via Jeff Eisenberg at PE.com, the Lakers reserve guard suffered a minor left knee injury while training with the Slovenian National Team. Vujacic sat out a pair of exhibition games against Macedonia earlier in the week in preparation for the Euro Championships later this summer.
"It's nothing serious," says Chanteuse Marie Allado back on Vujacic's site. "But the management didn't want to risk aggravating it."
Call it just a hunch, but I highly doubt the Lakers organization (or fans) will demand that Vujacic get on a direct flight home to L.A. like the concerned Spurs did with Tony Parker(notes), who they brought back to San Antonio for tests after he tweaked an ankle last week.
Machines can be fixed.
