Video: Greivis Vasquez and a Maryland Fan Rejoice

The Grizzlies drafted a very happy young man last night, who proceeded to give a bear hug to a bemused David Stern. A fan of Vasquez’s college work was also quite pleased:

    That’s funny but cool how he gave David Stern that big hug. Even though Maryland is a rival of Duke i’m happy for the kid.

    Love it. Very happy for the kid.

    Kid is going to surprise a lot of people. solid pick by memphis. He can run the point and score with the best of them. OJ and Greivis = most improved backcourt in WC.

    I hope this guy gets lots of playing time. I also hope to see him get some starting time.

    Great moment for him. Saw how excited and how grateful he was to be drafted by hugging none other than the commissioner! Hope he does well in the league.

    in other news, David Stern just fined Greivis Vasquez of the Memphis Grizzlies $100.000 for inappropriate behaviour and fondling up an NBA commissioner.

    david stern will see to it that vasquez is out of the league in 3 years for the bad touch. good pick though. maybe mike conley will finally start playing or get benched for good.

    @gothandles you are wrong look how good my boys came up.

    Ouch. Lakers pick too. Was that Pau trade really that one sided after all? Marc Gasol, Darrell Arthur, Grevis Vasquez, and money to go get ZBo

  • JD

    Would so love to be that guy

  • onlyclipsfanonslam

    @joeyE… LAL got three straight finals appearances, and back to back titles. MEM got 3 straight lottery appearances. You tell me who got the better end of that deal.

    It’s refreshing to see kids who really love The Game.

    LMAo gerard just fishied the thread

  • riggs

    finished* damn beer….

    @onlyclipsfanonslam: they were going to the lottery with Pau anyways. at least got a player who is doing the same things in ZBo, and some solid young players

    I so agree w the philosopher. It feels good to see young men w this refreshing attitude. L
