O.J. Mayo = potential Trail Blazers target?

Anyone who has watched more than a handful of Trail Blazers games this season can see that the team doesn't get much in the way of production from their bench. The backcourt scoring has been almost non-existent, as the combination of Sasha Pavlovic and Will Barton have produced little offensively. Pavlovic is a defensive-minded player, while Barton has shown almost no discretion...

Watch J.J. Hickson make a really, really, really bad pass (Video)

Portland Trail Blazers center J.J. Hickson is probably not accustomed to passing the ball. That would probably explain why Hickson's pass to teammate Sasha Pavlovic went way, way over his head and into the crowd during Thursday night's game against the Miami Heat. Either that, or maybe Hickson did intend to send the pass to the unidentified fan in the third row, as Pavlovic...

Video: Kevin Durant’s crossover puts Sasha Pavlovic on skates

Tweet   Sometimes it’s easy to forget Kevin Durant is 6’9″, like when he shoots three-pointers with a stroke that a decent amount of guards in the NBA would like to have.

Move over Sasha, Darko is the Celtics' new Serbian Assassin

As many Celtics Life regulars know, Sasha Pavlovic was known on this website as "The Serbian Assassin." But after reading Comcast Sports Net New England's recent article on Darko Milicic, it looks as though Darko is literally ready to take over that moniker: "I'm done trying to prove I'm the No. 2 pick and that [expletive] stuff," Milicic told...

Sasha, You Will Not Be Missed

I have one memory from Sasha Pavlovic’s career with the Boston Celtics. It came this season in one of the last games of the season, and it will be forever seared into my brain.
