Zalgiris coach Sarunas Jasikevicius gave a simple yet effective life lesson to a Lithuanian journalist at a press conference ahead of the team’s domestic league semi-final, Playoff series.

Jasikevicius actually had to explain why Augusto Lima was given leave to attend the birth of his newborn? Stunned, the former EuroLeague champion gave his advice to the journalist, who admitted to not having any kids of his own.

Basketball might be life to some Lithuanians, but there is ALWAYS a bigger picture.
