Greivis Vasquez and the Under Armour All-Stars

Still waiting for the NBA lockout to end, Greivis Vasquez (2006-10) is playing on an all-star team sponsored by Under Armour, touring and playing exhibitions against top high schools. On Monday, Vasquez's team, which also includes UA-affiliated NBA players Kemba Walker and Brandon Jennings, defeated Baltimore's St. Frances Academy, and next they will head to New York to play schools there. From the Baltimore Sun's story:

But as much fun as Vasquez seemed to have, tossing no look passes and hamming it up with fans after he knocked down a long jumper, it's clear he'd rather be out on an NBA court.

"It's hard, man," Vasquez said when asked about the lockout before the game. "This is something to just get our mind off of what's going on. We're just trying to play. We want a fair deal, and we want to be out there playing." [...]

"I don't know what's going to happen," Vasquez said. "I could play back home [in Venezuela], but I want to play in the NBA. You want to play in the best league."
