Most NBA prospects get to enjoy a congratulations from friends and a hug with mom after hearing their name called by David Stern. Not Jan Vesely. He got half a makeout session with girlfriend Eva Viteckova, who plays on the Czech women’s national team, when the Wizards called his name sixth overall.
Taking his game to even greater heights, Vesely then made his way over and proposed to ESPN’s Heather Cox while the PA system blasted “Down on Bended Knee.” Okay, you’re right. That didn’t happen. Stern would have had him killed for that. But you can imagine it from a guy like Vesely, right?
The European Blake Griffin? More like the Czechoslovakian Shawn Kemp.
