Photo: Laker Girl Holding ‘Sasha Let’s Bone’ Sign

A photo of the Laker fan holding the Sasha Let’s Bone” sign at the Lakers parade was sent to me after I posted the screen grab of the sign from local L.A. parade coverage yesterday:

Love fans who distract themselves from the only reason to be at such an event, laboring for the duration as they shoot crummy, personal pix no one outside the American Pickers guys would want to see for the next Millenia.

Couple snaps I can see. Drowning in digicards? Stop it.

Greek Team To Offer Kobe Three Year $83M Deal

It looks like Josh Childress may not be the highest-paid player in Europe for long. In last Sunday’s NEW YORK TIMES, Olympiakos co-owner Panayiotis Angelopoulos issued a warning to NBA clubs thinking their players would stay stateside, saying (emphasis ours), “I think we’ll see a day when a superstar player comes to Europe, but to Olympiacos, not to another team,” he said. “That is my answer. Maybe it will be very soon. Maybe then you realize what I’m telling you is serious.”

Josh Childress, representing the former, made like France and ran to Greece. But lest we confuse this tactic of playing overseas with retreating, remember that the players are screwing over their clubs, too.

Sasha Car

And the latest guy thinking about rolling out … the one … the only … the VUCHINE. (/single tear) That’s right. The LA TIMES reports that Sasha Vujacic, a.k.a. The Machine, could be leaving the country for Europe as well, if the Lakers don’t pony up more money than their minimal offer sheet.
