Jan Vesely will probably be on the dunking end of most of the posterizations he becomes involved in, but Taj Gibson caught him slippin’ under the basket last night in Chicago. What happened next was a formal welcoming to the NBA. I wouldn’t sweat it, Jan, ’cause it happens to everybody. It’s almost like a right of passage. You’re not truly an NBA player until...
