With these tough econ times, most Americans are doing all they can to keep their jobs. Wish I could say the same for a certain pro baller abroad.
(Silver lining: Clubs now know he can take on a double team)
The CROATIAN TIMES reports this week that former Florida Gator and New York Knick Brent Wright “could be dismissed from the Cibona Zagreb basketball club because he missed yesterday’s (Sunday) game with Dubrovnik.”
(Hey, I wouldn’t have caught a ride with her either!)
Based on the photos of Wright and teammate Alan Anderson the night before, at least Wright seemingly got his money’s worth for missing the team flight.
More from the Croatian Times:
Wright did not arrive on schedule on a flight from Zagreb to Dubrovnik on Saturday, which worried his club, but the Croatian media have reported Wright spent the night before in a night club at a party. Because of that, many assumed he did not awaken on time and then broke club rules.
Wright’s fellow player Alan Anderson was also at the party, but he arrived on time on the Saturday flight, the “Spotske novosti” website has reported.
If he does get released, I don’t think Wright has much to worry about. He’s now proven he’s more than capable when it comes to taking on a double team.
