I read scouting reports on Jan Vesely. Really, I did. I knew that he's a 6-foot-11 Czech forward who can jump out of the gym and is considered an excellent finisher on the break, that he's been a dismal free-throw shooter, and that he's also considered a capable defender, both on the perimeter and on the block. I'd read that he played with some style.
And yet, I wasn't prepared for him to style so hard on Thursday night. But he did. As soon as the Washington Wizards made him the sixth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Jan Vesely styled all over all of our faces, via his attractive ladyfriend styling all over his. It was wonderful, unexpected and legitimate-laugh-inducing. It was all that we hope the Washington Wizards can be.
Hey, Jan? How do very public displays of affection with your lovely lady in Newark, N.J., make you feel?
Happy, huh? Who can blame him?
