Peja Stojakovic RumorsAll NBA Players
Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry is hot on Stojakovic’ tail, trailing the 3-time All-Star by just 11 makes coming into Wednesday night’s matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Be it Wednesday or sometime late in the week, Curry will almost assuredly surpass the former Kings star. “Records are meant to be broken,” Stojakovic said. “Steph is definitely a guy, that if he continues to shoot – him and Klay (Thompson), if they continue to stay on the same pace, they can climb all the way to one and two.”
Adams knew virtually nothing about the NBA when he arrived. One of his brothers had an old video game he played as a kid. In the game, the best player was Peja Stojakovic, Adams says. And his brother had a poster of Larry Bird. So when Adams started playing, it was a lot of shrugging and no deference, which unnerved a long list of opponents. During his rookie season, Nate Robinson punched him in the stomach. Vince Carter elbowed him in the side of the head. Jordan Hamilton punched him in the shoulder. Larry Sanders elbowed him in the neck. Zach Randolph punched him in the jaw, a move that got Randolph suspended for Game 7 of the Thunder’s first-round playoff series with the Memphis Grizzlies two years ago.
Peja Stojakovic on his favorite memories in the building: “I have so many. But the shot Mike Bibby hit off of Chris Webber’s hand off that sealed Game 5 in the (2002) Western Conference Finals was one of the biggest shots for our team.” On being in attendance for the final regular season home game with fellow Kings legends on April 9: “You’re going to see a lot of generations of legends – players from all the way back in 1985 to now. There’s going to be so many different teams and so many different stories. I think it will be great for fans to get a chance to (see) all of those players that night.”
