Practice was over, a practice in which the Lakers' second unit had beaten the first unit (albeit with Kobe Bryant resting down the stretch) in a scrimmage. Just before leaving the game, Bryant had lost the ball out of bounds on a fast break under duress from Sasha Vujacic, resulting in an extended but good-natured disagreement between the two about whether Vujacic last touched the ball.

Now a stray ball found its way to Vujacic, standing well out of bounds in the left corner of the court and holding a bottle of Gatorade in his left hand. Vujacic lined up with the ball only in his right hand and lofted up a shot. Swish.

Standing under the basket was Bryant, who appeared a little impressed and stunned himself as he caught the ball after it passed perfectly through the net.

Assistant coach Brian Shaw had seen it, too, and offered the perfect remark: "Yeah, why don't you do that in the games?" That opened the door for Bryant to heckle, too, noting: "Yeah, he does it now. It's 6:02 p.m." -- big difference from 8:02 p.m.

Lakers head coach Phil Jackson would say a moment later that Vujacic might be the Lakers' best shooter in practice, but he gets "a little hyper" in games. At least there's some hope for Vujacic, whom the Lakers desperately want to develop given how little they've accomplished recently with foreign players compared to the competition (hello, San Antonio).

Sasha isn't a man yet, physically or psychologically. I'm probably stronger than this dude. That's his main problem, and why he simply continues not to execute properly in games.

Ya'll are too hard on rookies when they come to the Lakers because they arent all stars their first year, etc. Sasha believe it or not has shown improvement.

i don't see it. all he does is scratch people until they get mad...i would only use him if i'm down by 20 and i wanna get revenge on the other team's star guard. if he doesn't knock down shots (which he doesn't), he is pretty useless. just another jaric wannabe
