Comparing Rose to Wall is like asking which is a more impressive cat: A cheetah or a wolf? Dude, Wall ain’t no damn cat!

Ok, enough of that crap. Now for the only highlight reel you will ever see that includes a defensive rebound:

How hilarious would it be if we sent Jan Vesely to all star week for the 3 point contest. Just to troll the NBA

Best part of that play was Buck loosing his mind.

Big game tonight!

A win tonight against Brooklyn would give the Wizards a win percentage higher than Vesely's free throw percentage.

Maybe he'll make it to the line tonight, and his destiny will be in his own hands.

He shoots all of his 3's as turn around fadeaways

Here's the thing that bugs me that I don't get. I know highlight vids are just that -- I get that piece. But between the highlights and the Partizan game vids we watched after the draft he just looks like a different human being than he is now.

The body language is completely different. He didn't just dunk a lot -- he actively tried to dunk ON guys (while trying to tea bag them for good emasculating measure). He gestured to the crowd, he hooted, he walked with his shoulders back and a little swagger.

Now he just looks......broken, like he's undergone some personal tragedy. His shoulders are slumped, he's got perpetual deer in the headlights face.

I'm not making excuses for the guy or saying he's a good player -- but his numbers in Europe suggested he'd be better than he is (there's a couple post-draft blog posts out there saying as much).

It reminds me of the Tale of Skita (picked 5th overall), that Nivek has told a couple times. The Nuggets went trial by fire with him -- as opposed to bringing him along slowly -- and he just wilted.

Jan had a lot of stuff working against him -- no training camp, compressed season with no practice time, a terrible team with a bad culture among them. It made a bad/reach pick that much worse.

In Europe he couldn't shoot or rebound. Same story here. Dumb pick as everyone here could see.

He actually made a 3 point shot in one of his highlight vids, I was very startled at that. Sometimes I still have the crazy notion in the back of mind that he'll develop a shooting form one day and we'll finally get the stretch 4 that we've been coveting. Then I snap back to reality.

Unless Van is the ultimate Tanker and is purely acting badly on purpose in a secret deal with EG, so they can get a super team made from draft picks, and ves drop the act and go SSJ3 on the fans.

man that would be clever. 007 lever of cleverness.

Its a conspiracy I tell you.
Notice how he could shoot in the summer league, but cant now,,,, hummmmm interesting.....

Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

I missed All Star Weekend Rookie/Sophomore game. Could you link me to the Jan Vesely highlights, please?

Ves messes up your stats tonight with 10 pts, 7bds and only 2 fouls

Season totals went from

58 pts, 56 bds, 58 fouls
to
68pts, 63 bds, 60 fouls

:rockon:

I'm expecting big progress on this front. Vesely is currently totaling 88 points, 82 rebounds and 81 fouls. He really has slacked off on the fouls lately, it's discouraging. Fortunately, EG has shrewdly added Jason Collins to the fold. Collins is the all time Master at fouling. This season he is totaling 37 points, 52 rebounds, and 74 fouls! With Collins as a veteran mentor, Vesely is sure to get back on track.

why not just start vesley and give him more playing time his issue is he is nervous if he acts like hes the man he probably would be better.
