    Great Player and Teammate. Amazing in his years in Sacramento and what better way to go out then sweeping the Lakers and winning the championship.

    He was my favorite player on that Kings team that could never take out the Lakers.

    You mean he was never allowed to take out the Lakers. That series truly opened my eyes for the first time on how corrupt the NBA is.

    I used to slaughter people on the older 2k games Peja draining 3's. It was my favorite team besides the Rockets to play with. Really good player.

    Great player!?!

    There is a reason he was called Peja ChoKing.

    One of the biggest chokers in the history of the NBA. Bibby was carrying the load against the Lakers. If Peja had even half showed up in those series, instead of getting his @ss handed to him by that pretty boy Rick Fox, Kings would have had a couple of rings.

    Bullseye! Peja was one of the best shooters of his generation but he's also a choker of historic proportions.

    I'd already be dead to do anything, but I know I would NOT have any Clutchfans reading my eulogy.

    My girlfriend's crush. I'm relieved that he retired.

    /rant:p

    One of the purest shooters in NBA history.
