I love the Wizards’ draft. Chris Singleton is a godsend at 18, and Shelvin Mack seems like a great value pick at 34. But Jan Vesely stole the show.
First, immediately upon being selected No. 6 overall he stood up and made out with his girlfriend.
ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla then complimented Vesely’s “great taste in women,” compared him to Tom Chambers and predicted he’ll “win a dunk contest,” all in the time it took the 21-year-old to walk across the stage.
Finally, Vesely was asked about being called “the European Blake Griffin.” His response? “Blake Griffin is the American Jan Vesely.”
Not a bad sequence for my new favorite player. HAPPY
