Toronto Raptors’ Greivis Vasquez and other NBA stars team up to promote Healthy Living for ‘NBA Fit Week’- #NBAFit

Greivis Vasquez has made an immediate impact with the Toronto Raptors since he joined the team as a part of the early December trade with the Sacramento Kings. He has provided stellar play as a backup point guard for the Raptors in key stretches during the Raptors' current on-court success.

In 12 games with the Raptors, Vasquez is averaging 7 points, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds in 16 minutes per game, while helping the Raptors to a 9-3 record in those 12 games.

The NBA's annual NBA Fit Live Healthy Week began with the help of several ambassadors, including Greivis Vasquez. He joins celebrity chefs, community members and partners in highlighting the importance of healthy living through three simple pillars: be active, eat healthy and play together.
