03 March 2014 – Yesterday we played against Laboral Kutxa – formerly know as Baskonia. The game was of particular interest because it was the Spanish league debut for Lamar Odom, who signed with the Vitoria team just over a week ago. Despite the high expectations his physical deficiency was evident and he ended up with 2 pts (1/5 FG%), 2 reb, 1 blk and 1 ast in almost 17 minutes. The game itself was not of a high standard either but we managed to maintain our lead through the second half to win it 67-55.
After the game a big crowd waited outside to catch a glimpse of Odom and it was of little surprise that he was escorted by team assistants straight into the bus. I did get a chance pick up autos of Andrés Nocioni and of former Spain Olympic Team coach Sergio Scariolo on custom cards.
