Hornets.com 1-on-1: Greivis Vasquez
USA TODAY Sports

On a New Orleans Hornets roster that includes numerous personable players, point guard Greivis Vasquez is one of the most friendly and engaging interviewees. As the team’s Spanish radio play-by-play broadcaster Emilio Peralta recently complimented, “Greivis loves to talk to the media. He’s always willing to spend time with everyone." These days, the 25-year-old native of Venezuela has no shortage of things to discuss. The third-year pro is experiencing a stellar first half of this season, averaging career highs in virtually every major category. He ranks in the top three of the NBA’s assist leaders, while twice coming within a single rebound of registering a triple-double. In his first season as a full-time starter, Vasquez has more than doubled his scoring average, at 14.0 points per game, after entering 2012-13 with a career mark of 6.2. The recent Western Conference Player of the Week has also appeared in every Hornets game over the past two seasons, a streak that now stands at exactly 100 games.
