Former Los Angeles Lakers player Sasha Vujacic told ClutchPoints’ Tomer Azarly he still gets love from the Lakers faithful for making those two title-winning free throws 12 years ago:
“It’s been amazing. When you get drafted by the Lakers in the first round, and I was one of those people that my dream was not only to go to the NBA, but my dream was to go to L.A. and win with the Lakers – and obviously to play with one of the best players that’s ever played the game. And then thank God I didn’t miss those free throws,” Vujacic said.
“A lot of times, people forget that I was there for seven years and the only thing they remember are the free throws and thank God because that was payback. To answer your question, that’s probably one of the most amazing feelings that Lakers fans got and I got as well and our team. By winning and getting our rematch done properly in 2010.”
