Vitor Faverani in Disbelief with Starting Role
He may not have imagined such a chance, but Vitor Faverani was handed a ticket to his first NBA start in the Celtics’ season opener against the Raptors last night.
Faverani’s experience with Valencia of the Spanish League has clearly made the transition easier.
“I think it’s because I played (many) games,” the 6-foot-11 Brazilian said of his European experience. “If you are nervous you will make too many mistakes, so it’s important not to be. . . . No. I never imagined it, never, in training camp, before training camp, I can’t believe, no.”
