Gary Forbes to play for Team Panama in FIBA Americas TournamentPosted by Inside Hoops
Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports:
It’s been a mind-boggling year for former UMass standout Gary Forbes, who earned a roster spot with the Nuggets, became a key rotation player, watched the whole Carmelo Anthony saga unfold firsthand, and participated in the NBA playoffs.
Forbes is now hosting a basketball camp in his hometown of Brooklyn. It includes a lesson on eating better and education on diabetes, which Forbes was diagnosed with in 2005.
And while he ponders whether to return overseas during the lockout, Forbes will be playing for his native Panama in the FIBA Americas tournament in August, hoping to land a berth in the 2012 London Olympics.
