Where Are They Now, 2009; Part 19
January 24th, 2009

Pat Garrity retired this summer, and according to reports behind a paywalled article, he has since gone back to school. But I’m not paying for it to find out. This is my limit.


Mickael Gelabale is unsigned, and – presumably – still rehabbing his severe knee injury from last March.


Otis George is averaging 10.9 points and 7.4 rebounds in the Italian second vision with Umana Reyer Venezia, although he hasn’t played for a month due to injury. George has also turned himself in a 41% three-point shooter, which isn’t ever bad from a supposedly undersized centre. Although I don’t think this guarantees an Anthony Tolliver-like career projection.


C.J. Giles is playing for the L.A. D-Fenders in the D-League, where he averages 12.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.4 blocks a game. Rashid Byrd, the other centre who I told you was playing there earlier in this list, was recently waived, which is hard to achieve when you’re a seven-footer in the D-League. So congratulations to him.


Eddie Gill is possibly the best point guard in the D-League, averaging 15.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 8.2 assists for the Colorado 14ers. He’s shooting only 39%, though.


Kendall Gill is still working for Comcast Sportsnet and doing studio stuff for Bulls games, but I don’t know if he still boxes.


Tony Gipson (also known as Nicholas Gipson, confusingly) averages 7.3 points per game for the Raiffeisen Furstenfeld Panthers in the Austrian league. The Austrian league. He doesn’t even start in the Austrian league. Might have jumped the gun a bit when I decided to add him to his website, you know.


Gordan Giricek is signed with Fenerbache in Turkey, but suffered a season-ending injury after only two games.


James Gist didn’t make the Spurs roster, as they decided to try several hundred other forwards instead of him so as to not lose his rights. Gist instead signed with Angellica Biella, where he averages 11.9 points and 5.4 rebounds.


Dion Glover continues to do the rounds in the minor leagues, with his latest stop being a one-game stint with Gaiteros de Zulia in Venezuela last March.


Andreas Glyniadakis is back in Greece, in his second season for Marousi. In EuroCup play this year, A-Glyn has averaged 4.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.2 fouls. However, in the Greek league, he is leaps and bounds better, managing to average more rebounds (3.5) than fouls (3.2). Progress.


– Finally, “Never Say Die” Anthony Goldwire has not said “DIE!”, and continues to play in Europe. Now 37 years old, Goldwire recently signed with Sant Josep Girona in Spain, where he is trying to be the last-minute Hollywood-esque saviour of a floundering Girona team, ranked as they are fourth last in the LEB Bronze (which, misleadingly, is the actually the Spanish fourth division). Unfortunately, it’s not really worked out – despite playing for a team that is only one game from being last in all of Spain, Goldwire has totalled only 14 points and 1 assist in two games, on 3-13 shooting. Perhaps it’s time to rethink that nickname i just gave him.
