1987 – Happy 26th birthday to New Orleans Hornets guard Greivis Vasquez (@greivisvasquez) who is in his third season in the NBA. After being a part of the 2010-11 Memphis Grizzlies team that pushed the Oklahoma City Thunder to the seventh game of the Western Conference Semifinals, Vasquez has seen his role increase as he has played more with the Hornets. He is already very close to surpassing his 2011-12 point total for New Orleans.
