    Default Cape Verde giant Walter Tavares

    Edy Walter of Cape Verdean national basketball team highlighted in Canary Islands

    Edy Walter, the giant of Cape Verde’s national basketball team, who shone last August in the Afrobasket eliminatory matches in Praia, is showing his talent on the Herbalife Gran Canaria team. In a six-minute Tubabasket report during the game against Real Madrid, the 20-year-old, 2.2-meter-tall athlete talks about his life and how his career began.

    In a short film published on YouTube, Edy is praised by his teammates and coach, who say he is improving with each passing day. In addition to his desire to triumph in Spain, he has another dream in his life: playing for the NBA in the United States.

    Edy Walter Tavares is one of Cape Verde’s great hopes in Afrobasket 2013, which will take place in Côte d’Ivoire in August of this year.

    Here's the video:



    Basically he says that his hard work is paying off in Gran Canaria and tells the story of how a Spanish tourist saw him by chance in Cape Verde and talked to him about playing basketball in Gran Canaria. Coach Pedro Martínez states he has been with the club for the past three years (in fact he started playing basketball just that time ago) and was scouted in Cape Verde after information about him through that tourist. Martínez highlights his hard work, but emphasizes than he is injury prone.

    Walter Tavares entered the 2013 NBA draft.
