Peja can still go

Don't concentrate on your modelling career just yet, Peja. 

Vlade Divac was once quoted in saying that Predrag “Peja” Stojakovic was the best Serbian and possibly European to play in the NBA.

His sharpshooting skills dropped jaws in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and he was one of the reasons why the Sacramento Kings were fun to watch then.

But sadly, age and health played an integral part to his decline. He started his career with the Kings where alongside Divac and Hidayet “Hedo” Turkoglu formed a fun European dynamic called the Sacramento Serbs. He had pit stops with the Indiana Pacers where he was dubbed as the second coming of Reggie Miller after Miller Time retired, New Orleans Hornets, and the Toronto Raptors who opted to release him from his contract because they need new blood in their system.

He started the season with the Hornets and he became part of the deal that sent Jarrett Jack to New Orleans. He played only two games for the Raptors where he scored 20 points, 3 rebounds, and an assist in two games.

In free agency, Peja will wait for a team to offer him a contract. My guess is that a contender would use his services. If you look at it, there are a lot of teams that is in need of a shooter or an extra offensive spark of the bench. From the back of my head I can enumerate the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat, Portland Trail Blazers, Milwaukee Bucks, Atlanta Hawks, Oklahoma City Thunder, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, and the Chicago Bulls as teams that could have a slight disadvantage at the shooter/slasher spot. And then there are those teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, New Jersey Nets, and the Cleveland Cavaliers that could use help in their offense.

Anyway the least Sacramento could do to their former star is to let him play for the squad until he retires where he will be received by the city he once electrified.

By the way, have you seen Peja’s wife, Aleka Kamila

So from Peja love, you can now be experiencing Peja jealousy?

Sure. You must be right now.

But in all seriousness, hopefully this is not the last we see of Peja.

Game over.
