I know you missed Rio and you’re recovering, but how have your offseason and your preparation for the year been? Greivis Vasquez: I feel much better. I feel healthier. I’m like a few weeks away, so I’m really happy with the fact that I’m in Brooklyn. I’m in New York. It’s gonna be a career year. I love this market. I identify myself — I’m from Caracas, I’m from a major city, so I think things are gonna turn out pretty good for myself this year. Like I said, it’s a career year, so I’m very focused. The main thing is just to be back healthy so I can be myself and go out there and compete and help my team win games. It’s gonna be exciting. It’s gonna be fun, and we’re looking forward to the season.
Storyline: Greivis Vasquez Injury
Statement from Greivis Vasquez: ”After a great deal of consultation with the Nets and team doctors, I have been advised that unfortunately it will be necessary for me to withdraw from Olympic competition. While it would have been an honor and a dream to join my teammates and represent our country in Rio, the medical staff feels that it is essential that I devote this time to work towards getting healthy for the upcoming NBA season. This will be the best decision, not only for this season, but for my career going forward. I wish the best to my teammates at the Olympic Games and I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to be a part of our national team again in the future.”
