    Let us celebrate Jan's NBA career with a look back at some of the things our old buddy OHMSS had to say about him prior to the 2011 draft:

    Sig material right there, but surely taken out of context or a brief bout of madness, right?

    Well okay, still insisting that Vesely would be the most athletic player in the NBA, but he at least acknowledged that he would be a project. So I guess his expectations were more reasonable than what I'm portraying, right?

    Hold that thought.

    So here's to Jan: Best of luck in Turkey! And here's to OHMSS, whatever moniker you're posting under now.

    Freakin beautiful thread.

    I kid you not, the worst poster I've ever seen on CF endorsed the man who would end up being the worst player in the NBA. Just makes too much sense.

    If how good a player is is based on how hot is girlfriend is. Vessely would have been an all star.

    Veseley off the bench would be interesting for the Rockets. He would not cost much either. At the very least he could help the Vipers, maybe he can learn to shoot there.

    Well he was very athletic, so there's that. He just wasn't very good at basketball.

    Ohmms was a troll that every board should have. Unfortunately his sting here was cut short. Tru troll talent.

    Jan was/is extremely athletic but he is quite possibly the least confident player in the NBA. He didn't trust his own handles, his own shot and his own decision making. As a result he was almost useless other than an ocassional highlight reel dunk.
