I went to today's game and I was very impressed with Sasha Vujacic. While I was disappointed to see the Nets give up on TWill, I understand why he was traded and I was intrigued when I saw that we got Vujacic in return. I remember hating him when he played against us with the Lakers. When Jackson let him play he was deadly behind the arc.
At today's game, he hustled every single play and was an animal on defense. He was scrappy and energetic and gave our second unit exactly what they needed to gain and eventually maintain the lead. He was everything that I had hoped Najera would have been when we signed him. After the game, he thanked the fans and said that he was happy to be here and hopes that this is the first of many successful games.
Though I doubt that Billy King is on this website and actually taking stock in what fans have to say, I see that some people are suggesting that we throw Vujacic into a Carmelo trade or other random trades that have been proposed/speculated on. I actually think that Vujacic can be a valuable piece for us to hang onto moving forward. He is only 26, knows what it's like to win the big one, and plays with a lot of heart and hustle. Jackson's putting him in the dog house has also made him hungry to play again and this desire was evident when he was on the floor. In short, I am definitely impressed with him and I think he could be a solid roleplayer for us moving forward.
On a completely separate note, I used to post on this site under the name KFranchise but once the servers changed and you needed to register I only read comments. I am happy to report that I am back. I think it is necessary for everyone to thank NetIncome and the rest of the NetsDaily staff. This is an amazing website and I am very grateful to have it as a Nets resource.
