The short answer: Very. The long answer is after the jump.
- Has played for at least 18 competitive professional and semi-professional teams since leaving GW. See an incomplete list at the bottom of this post.
- Despite having a first name that sounds like a nickname, Val also dubbed “SirShootsAlot” by GW fans. he took 668 shots in 30 games as a freshman. An unblievable average of 22.3 shots per game. For comparison’s sake, Kevin Durant took 18.5 shots per game in his 2006-2007 NCAA freshmen season.
- His last season in the American minors was in 07-08 where he temparily backed up former Frost Heave Aaron Cook on the Butte Daredevils in the CBA. He was cut after 12 games, but not before averaging 4.8 ppg and being suspended for two games by the league for starting a bench clearing brawl.
- Has the letters N, B, and A tattooed on his right bicep.
- Was punched in the groin in a game against St. Johns. The lack of a foul and obvious nature of the crotch-punching garnered a fair bit of media attention.
- Also while in college he was on the GW team that got in a fight with Tennessee after the game in the hospitality sweet in Honolulu.
- Speaking of fighting in college – in December of 1999 his posse got in a fight with the posse of a teammate at an after game party on campus. There were rumours that it resulted in gunshots.
