Dragic and Vujacic Get Into Some Gangsta ‘Ish
The ongoing battle between Slovenian natives Goran Dragic and Sasha Vujacic, got ugly Saturday night as The Lake Show clinched the series. Following one of your sicker step-back jumpers right in Vujacic’s grill (aka a “Grill Sandwich), Dragic talked a little too much heat and got binged by the back of Sasha’s arm, in a deliberate retaliation. Dragic may have put some extras on it by falling to the floor and pretending to be seriously injured, but flopping is the Euro way.
The Beef dates back to at least this past summer when Dragic and other Slovenian National team players were instrumental in getting Vujacic booted from the squad for being way too “Hollywood.” Normally when 2 Euros from the same country play against each other in a situation like this, they will show some form of courtesy, but such has not been the case in the Vujacic-Dragic war.
It doesn’t help that Dragic has been balling out for the Suns throughout the postseason, whilst Sasha has spent the majority spectating on the sideline. But in Sasha’s defense, the Lakers are going to the finals which means he still has a chance to get some of that shine back.
