Greivis Vasquez Update

As posted here several months ago, Benjamin met former Maryland Guard Greivis Vasquez at a sports memorabilia store close to home. Vasquez has had a pretty decent rookie season coming off the bench for the Memphis Grizzlies. He played a key role in last night's classic triple overtime playoff game (see below) in which his Grizzlies ultimately lost.

“It was a good shot,” he told reporters. “You practice that when you’re on the court by yourself. Every time I work out with Biggie — Damon Stoudamire — before we start working out I work on those type of shots. Today it was me, it was mine, and it got us to [double] overtime, but it wasn’t good enough to get the win that we wanted. This is truly gonna motivate me to get better, because you got to take advantage right now, because you never know when you come back.”

He's our official favorite NBA player now and Benjamin thought this was "pretty cool" in his words when I showed this to him tonight. Go Greivis! Go Grizzlies!
