Walter Samuel “Edy” Tavares da Veiga, popular as Edy Tavares, is a Cape Verdean professional basketball player. He plays Center for Real Madrid Baloncesto of the Spanish Liga ACB and the EuroLeague. 

Edy’s journey from the small island of Maio to the dazzling heights of the NBA and beyond is an incredible one.

Tavares commenced his basketball journey playing for Gran Canaria in 2009 in the Liga EBA. Then, he was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2014 NBA draft. After one season with the Hawks, he played in the G League until 2017.

In 2017, Tavares signed with Real Madrid after a short stint in the NBA with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

The NBA player also represents his country, playing for the Cape Verde men’s national basketball team.

Edy Tavares and Paula Grimon’s love story is one that could rival any romantic movie plot.

Paula was born on May 8, 1990, in the Canary Islands, where she grew up with her sister, Cristina Grimón.

They first met during Edy’s time playing for the Gran Canaria in the Liga ACB. Their relationship quickly blossomed as they started dating in 2013.

The couple’s love story is characterized by their shared passion for sports and Paula’s unwithering support for Edy’s career.

In light of her social media posts, Paula understands the demands and pressures of the sport, making their bond even stronger.

Evidently, Paula is very active on Twitter and is very vocal about the center’s basketball affairs. The Canarian vigorously defends her husband and often criticizes referees and rivals, surprising the networks.

Breaking the stereotype of a typical athlete WAG, Paula has earned her the title of ‘online hooligan’ of Tavares.

Paula was the one to dispel the doubts about her husband’s possible exit to the NBA from Real Madrid in 2021. 

She made headlines again in 2022 as she criticized a Baxi player for an unsportsmanlike foul on Edy.

She wrote, “They almost ripped my husband’s neck off, but well in the public, they lower their mask to insult him.”
