Jan Vesely: Was it all a dream?

vesely dream

When the news arrived that the 6th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the “Dunking Ninja”, the man DC faithful have come to know as Honza was being traded few could have been surprised.

The bigger surprise to me was the fact that it took this long for the organization to finally publicly accept what Wizards fans have known for the better part of Jan’s tenure in DC.

When something of this magnitude happens in Wizards land it’s sure to get #WizardsTwitter abuzz. Some of my favorite reactions are below:


I could probably pen a 1600 word diatribe to describe the Jan Vesely era in DC, or how Ernie basically Cerrato’d (botched) the 2011 draft, or the Wizards’ lack of player development, or a myriad of other issues but I’d prefer to remember the good times and instead wish Jan the best of luck in Denver.

Vesely departs the Washington Wizards having played 141 games with about 900 DNP-CD’s (900 being a slight exaggeration). Vesely was 53-for-131 from the FT line (that calculates 40.5%). Jan finished with averages of 2.03 rebounds, 0.60 assists, 0.48 blocks and 3.52 points per game on 52.4% shooting from the field. Vesely leaves behind his fellow draft mate Chris Singleton, the lone survivor of the 2011 draft class.

These are the memories of Jan that I’ll choose to remember:

If the women makes you a better person than she is the one! Love her.
