In 1995, center George Zidek helped lead the UCLA Bruins to the NCAA Championship with solid interior defense and a variety of old-school hook shots. For his efforts, the Charlotte Hornets made him the 22nd pick in that June's draft, which also made Jiri the first Czech player in NBA history.

It didn't work out, to say the least. Over three seasons, Zidek played in only 135 games, finishing up with a career PER of 8.7. Yet those issues didn't deter one big fan from putting together a YouTube mix of his best moments in the association. Watch it and be amazed.
