The NBA announced today that New Orleans Hornets guard Greivis Vasquez was named the Western Conference Player of Week for games played Monday, December 24, through Sunday, December 30. This is the first time in Vasquez’s career that he has won a Player of the Week honor.

Vasquez led the Hornets to a 2-1 record, averaging 21.0 points, 10.0 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals while shooting 53.1 percent from the field. The Hornets guard recorded a career-high 27 points to go along with eight assists and six rebounds in a win over the Orlando Magic on 12/26. In the following contest, Vasquez narrowly missed recording his first career triple-double with 20 points, 14 assists and a career-high nine rebounds. In his final contest of the week, Greivis recorded 16 points, eight assists, four rebounds and four steals while guiding the Hornets to a win over the Charlotte Bobcats on 12/29 despite being down as many as 21 points. Through the end of the week, Vasquez ranked fourth in the NBA in assists per game (8.8)

Big congratulations to Greivis.

He joins the following company: James Harden, Kenneth Faried, Kevin Durant (2), Tim Duncan, Blake Griffin, David Lee, and Chris Paul.

Not a bad list for a Hornets player to join.

In the Eastern conference, Monta Ellis got the nod and joined his teammate Brandon Jennings, LeBron James (3), Al Horford, Carmelo Anthony, Josh Smith, and Paul George.

Let’s go for dos, Greivis!

Viva El General!
