Maria Sharapova Dumps Sasha Vujacic

Maria Sharapova announced on Friday that she is no longer engaged to former NBA player Sasha Vujacic.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: How did this not happen sooner?

In fact, how did they ever get together in the first place? Vujacic was not only largely unproductive but he was a one-trick pony, constantly shooing ill-advised threes; he made Vladamir Radmonivic look dynamic.

But what’s amazing is that for a guy who was known as a "three point specialist", his career average in terms of three point shots made from downtown is only 37%. So okay, maybe he was just a good overall shooter? Nope. His career FG% is 39%. So, what exactly did he do, besides piggy back Kobe and Phil Jackson for a couple of rings? If you have any idea, please let us know.

So why did they break-up? Queue the PR machine. ""It was a really nice period of time for both of us, but our career schedules just made it extremely difficult to see each other with the traveling, and especially his career move to Turkey," said Sharapova. "He wasn’t home one time during the 10 months that he was in Turkey, so that made it extremely difficult."

If your fiance leaves for Turkey for 10 straight months and you don’t hear from him/her, it’s a safe bet that your relationship sucks. It’s not like Turkey is Cabo, or even Delaware in terms of vacation destinations. "Hi, I’m in…Delaware."

Maybe if Vujacic wore that stupid, stringy headband thing usually reserved for female soccer players, his bangs couldn’t have obscured his view, and the fact that he was married to one of the most desirable women in the world.

It looks like Vujacic will finally have to learn how to rebound- ZING.
