Awvee Storey Wikipedia
Awvee Storey (born April 18, 1977) is a former American professional basketball player. He played the shooting guard/small forward position. He is also the older foster brother of actress Chloe Bennet.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Storey formed a relationship with Bennet Wang who ran an inner-city basketball league. Storey's mother relinquished Storey into Bennet Wang's care. Later on, Storey entered Arizona state with a basketball scholarship.
Storey played his freshman season at the University of Illinois before transferring to Arizona State University, sitting out the 1998–99 season.
Storey was one of the top rebounders in the Pac-10, at only 6–6. He made an immediate impact and gave the young squad some veteran leadership despite being only a sophomore. Blessed with excellent athletic ability, Storey was able to defend guards, forwards and, when necessary, a center. He posted 16 double-doubles in his 85-game career. In 2000–01, he earned Pac-10 Honorable Mention honours, after posting career-highs in points (13.1) and rebounds (9.1), the latter a conference best.
Storey earned his bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree with concentrations in communications and sociology at ASU. In the summer of 2001, he worked for Fox Sports Arizona as a production department intern.
Awvee played in the NBA from 2004 to 2008. He played with the New Jersey Nets from 2004 to 2005, the Washington Wizards from 2005 to 2006, and the Milwaukee Bucks from 2007 to 2008.
On December 21, 2006, as a member of the NBA Development League's Dakota Wizards, Martynas Andriuškevičius sustained a serious head injury when he was punched by teammate Awvee Storey in an altercation during practice in Bismarck, North Dakota. The center suffered a fractured skull, severe concussion, and a two-centimeter hematoma (bruise) on the left side of his brain. Doctors initially thought it would be months before he could speak, but he was able to within a month, and stated his desire to play basketball within a year. Storey was suspended indefinitely. Days later he had his contract terminated and he was dismissed from the league. Andriuškevičius did not wish to pursue charges.
