Jackson Vroman: Well, I am a big Patron drinker and decided it would be nice to have my favorite drink in Iran. It took me a long time, but finally with the help of a teammate I was able to find a dealer willing to try and bring Patron if we did a big order. He woud charge $130 a bottle, which is 100 more than it costs. We ordered 50! It was a big hit in the party scene. We could have sold all 50 and made money, but we didn’t. Patron is now offered more frequently in Tehran and the price has dropped to around 100, but I am known there for being the first person to ever bring it to Iran. HoopsHype

Jackson Vroman: The team fined me and warned if I did something like that again, they would fire me. Unfortunately, I had already purchased an $8,000 dollar ticket to New York for New Year’s Eve as well as a table reservation and a $2,000 hotel room. I had over $10,000 invested in the trip, but a lot more than that to lose if I was fired. My flight was scheduled to get back to Barcelona at 7.30 am and we had practice in Girona, an hour away at 10 am. I decided to risk it. Landed in New York, went shopping and to dinner, then out to Tenjune nightclub. Had an amazing night, went to the hotel and packed up, jumped on the flight back, landed on time and I was the first person at practice. HoopsHype
