Random, I know…but enjoy. :smile: This is from from 3 weeks ago.

[SIZE=5][B]Jerusalem Post: Flores, Withers brilliant for Holon in season opening victory[/B][/SIZE]

Tigers power forward Curtis Withers, who had a whopping seven dunks in the game, owned the paint and was impressive in transition, finishing the evening with 19 points and eight rebounds.

I still think he can get himself a look in the NBA if he’s working hard.

Also, a preview article for the Israeli team Withers is currently playing for, Holon. Apparently they’re pretty ballin…

[QUOTE]“We’ll be a team that’s got speed and that’s entertaining ,” said Withers. "We’ve got Deron - he might give you a highlight here and there plus we have Luis [Flores] whose nickname is “gettin’ buckets Louis.” [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE] chizzled, 2m frame[/QUOTE]

hmm, guess its been awhile since I’ve last seen him.

thought he was bigger.

glad to hear he is still playing somewhere.

2 meters… . ha ha!

“gettin’ buckets Louis” is an awesome nickname.

Can we bring back Plavich and Withers. Would solve all our problems.

He visited over the summer not long ago and played a get’up game with the boys - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBCeY_VSwAw

I saw him up close and he is HUGE now :49ers:

2m is the equivalent to 2 israeli men.

I think his team’s postseason just started.

Some stats: [URL=http://www.eurobasket.com/player.asp?Cntry=ISR&PlayerID=53940]http://www.eurobasket.com/player.asp?Cntry=ISR&PlayerID=53940[/URL]

About 10 ppg, good from 2 but horrible from the line at 44%. Not many three attempts. Remember what we said when he was here. Would have average nearly 20 per game if he could shoot free throws.

Some things sadly never change.
