Anthony grabbed Vujacic’s neck. Vujacic dramatically clutched his throat. Anthony was ejected.
Now Vujacic’s teammate on the Knicks, Anthony is talking bluntly about Vujacic.
Anthony, via Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv:
“I hated Sasha,” Anthony said after practice Sunday. “I hated Sasha. We got into it a couple of times. He was one of them little dirty players, sneaky, grab your jersey, foul you after the play. He was speaking in his language and now I understand what he was saying to me — it makes me hate him even more back then.
“Having him on my team is a big plus, knowing how feisty he is. He’s a vet. He knows how to play the game. He knows the system. I think having him is a big plus.”
The best teammates are often the most-loathed opponents.
That’s why having a Teammate of the Year award where players can’t voted for their own teammates is so silly.
