This isn’t a post to remind you about all the players the Wizards missed out on in the 2011 NBA Draft. Everyone knows the Wizards took Jan Vesely over Kawhi Leonard. Everyone knows they took Chris Singleton over Jimmy Butler. Everyone knows they took Shelvin Mack over Chandler Parsons. Everyone knows the Wizards gave up on Mack sooner than they gave up on Vesely or Singleton, even...
Jan Vesely is close to signing with Fenerbahce Ulker. Vesely was the sixth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Washington Wizards and was traded last season to the Denver Nuggets. Vesely has played in just 2,455 minutes over three NBA seasons.
When Jan Vesely was drafted sixth overall in 2011 by the Washington Wizards, he declare that Blake Griffin was the “American Jan Vesely”. It’s safe to say he was bit premature, as Vesely’s career has been far glorious as Griffin’s. Now his days in the NBA may be over. According multiple reports the 6-foot-11 Czech Republic native will be heading to Europe, as he will sign...
Denver Nuggets forward Jan Vesely put on a clinic against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. He may have only scored five points and grabbed three rebounds in 12 minutes of action, but Vesely wowed the crowd when he broke no one’s ankles with a sick up-fake early in the second quarter.

This season, I’m (keyword) almost sad to see him leave. The reason I’m not as happy about Vesely leaving as I thought I’d be is because ever since training […]

As it stands right now, the Washington Wizards are a mediocre basketball team. On Saturday, they played the Detroit Pistons – another mediocre basketball team. Wizards forward Jan Vesely took the cue and tossed up one of the most mediocre (see also terrible) free throws in the history of free throws. Of course, Vesely is no stranger to horrid free throws. Also during Saturday’s...

Pacers 93 Wizards 73 (OT) November 29, 2013 Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN NBA.com boxscore/highlights Even before Jan Vesely was ruled a starter for last night’s game in place of Nene, we foresaw the matchup against the NBA best 14-1 Pacers inevitably becoming a debacle. Unfortunately, the reality of that was only amplified after the […]The post Game recap: Wizards...
