Its always nice to see former Falcons having success, and its always important to remember that in basketball, there are nice livings to be made playing overseas, something that is not really available in most other sports. Anthony Stacey has had success overseas, and now we hear an update on Lenny Matela.
He averaged 10 points, 5 rebounds and 22 minutes a game for Spirou, which is situated in Charoleois, a mining community near Brussels.
"Our leading scorer only averaged 12.5 points," said Matela.
European players command salaries ranging anywhere from $25,000 to $2.5 million with perks including free housing and transportation.
And he notes that the free car was a Mercedes at one point.
Lenny was a great Falcon on a star-crossed team. The Falcon Nation sends out its best wishes to him!
