After the shocking report earlier today regarding the 'Black Mamba' signing in Italy becoming the unofficial 'Pasta/Pizza Mamba', the Memphis Grizzlies Venezuelan point guard Greivis Vasquez officially decided not to sign with Israeli organization Hapoel Jerusalem and will remain in Venezuela, this, after both sides agreed on terms of a deal where Vasquez would earn a monthly salary of $28,000. Eurobasket understood that the reason as to why Vasquez decided to stay in VZ is because of a decisive meeting with President Hugo Chvez, who offered the local mega-star a 'huge 2-month marketing deal with the government which includes a lot of money,' source very close to the situation revealed.
