Sarunas Jasikevicius: I thought I could be a rather important piece of a team that was thinking big. Meanwhile, I continued to goof around, thinking I could get in shape once in the training camp. Instead… I got injured. How? In a crazy way. I love going to concerts, and Barcelona is unrivaled in Europe when it comes to live music. I went to see Madonna, Rihanna, 50 Cent, Julio Iglesias (old family passion), Bruce Springsteen… and then U2 came to town in August 2005. It was the birthday of the wife of my friend Darius Maskoliunas. We had a late lunch at the Port Olimpic and then we went to the concert together. I sang, I danced, and I jumped. That’s it… I jumped. And the next day, I could not even walk. I had to take the medical exam with the Pacers, and arriving in these conditions was certainly not a great start. I could not even do the treadmill, let alone running. Despite this, the Pacers’ medical staff surprised me.

There was one — and only one — Dream Team. So that is the American view. But not everyone is American. As all knowledgable American basketball fans know, Lithuania is the country that has competed at a high level most consistently over the past six Olympics. Lithuania produced Arvydas Sabonis, Sarunas Marciulionis, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Linas Kleiza, Jonas Valenciunas, and Egle, among others. And now a film has been made about the 1992 Lithuanian national team, entitled “The Other Dream Team.”
