I actually never minded Sasha. In fact, I thought he was a big part of beating Boston in the finals. As we all know Fisher couldn't D up anybody. When the Lakers would have a backcourt of Sasha and Kobe they were at their best against the Celtics. Of course I'd never really want to pay him more than the minimum and there certainly are other players I would take over him, but he was a little better than most people remember him being.
