Peja Stojakovic’s Still Got It

 

Peja Stojakovic was one of the top shooters in the game, an excellent free throw shooter with excellent ball handling ability. His career averages of 17 PPG / 4.7 REB / 1.8 AST / 45% FG / 40.1% 3PT / 89.5% FG are pretty damn good, especially his shooting percentages.

Peja was an All-Star in 2002, 2003 and 2004, won back-to-back 3 point contests in 2002 and 2003, and won the NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.

I will always remember him as part of the awesome Kings team back in the day that would have deserved to win a title. White Chocolate, Divac, C-Webb, Peja and a bit later Bibby. The Sacramento arena had the loudest crowd back in the early 2000s and the team was incredibly fun to watch.

Peja currently is the director of player personnel and development for the Sacramento Kings, but likely still is the best shooter on the team.

He proved it once again after a recent practice, and went 11 of 11 from three point land without warming up, and in street clothes.
