T-Will Goes Missing Again

New Jersey Nets


In the old Soviet Union, there was a grand tradition of political photo manipulation.  Communist party officials who had fallen into disgrace --or worse-- were airbrushed out of group shots, replaced by either new, favored members of the hierarchy or simply a hole.  Photoshop has made that easier...as in the case of the cover of the Nets' program for the "Evening of Russian Culture". 

The cover features the team standing in front of St. Basil's Cathedral on Red Square in Moscow with a short caption, "St. Basil's Cathedral on October 10, 2010 in Moscow, Russia".  But look closer.  There, standing front and center, feet planted on Red Square's famed cobblestones, is Sasha Vujacic. Is problem, comrade. 

On October 10, Sasha (who is engaged to Maria Sharapova) was a member of the Lakers. He didn't join the Nets until December 15.  And what of  three former Nets who actually stood in Red Square that day: Terrence Williams, Joe Smith and Brian Zoubek? Like some offending Trotskyite, they have been "disappeared".
