at 1,78 cm u.s. guard jason gardner may be the smallest player in germany’s top league, but that didn’t stop our guy from doing great things this season. winning mvp honors actually. last week, the 28 year old university of arizona alumni of the ewe oldenburg baskets was voted most valuable player 2008/09 by the bbl’s 18 head coaches and selected media representatives. 15 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal per game amounted to a +12.3 efficiency rating and lead the baskets to a surprising third place finish in the regular season. sometimes, it pays to be the gardner!
good luck in the playoffs jay, we’re rooting for you!
