lol u would come at me like that.....
Don't flatter yourself. I did it to somebody else before you. Wink.
lol ur obsessed with this dude.....seriously.
The only way I'll re-enact the volleyball scene with you is if you agree to not smack my butt after every spike. Also, it's not against the rules to wear deodorant. No, it doesn't have an effect on the other team's play; it only has an effect on me.
Who do you think you are? I'M TOMMY CRUISE!!! You're his loser-friend. You'll wear what I tell you to wear, and I'll smack what I want to smack! Got it!?!
Jan Vessely averaged 4 points per game this season....
Other then what people tell you...I don't know if he is a top 10 pick...
You're kidding, right?
Where's your source?
I've watched him play, you are 100% wrong.
My bad...he averaged 4.8 points last season. He's up to almost...9 points
Sorry dude, he's a good mid to late 1st round pick to me but I wouldn't take him in the lotto
Fair enough, but he reminds me so much of Tayshaun Prince. Offensively he is a project but he is an NBA player right now. Great defender, great passer, plays with energy.
Offensively he is pretty much a dunker and a three point shooter right now, but teams in the mid-late lottery will regret passing on him.
I wouldn't be shocked if goes lotto because his measureables but
What makes him a better pick then someone like Devin Ebanks or Paul George?
Makes Ebanks a better prospect tha Vesley? Ebanks is so overrated on this site. Vesley has very good upside. He is a projected top 15 pick at the very least from what I've see/heard.
Ebanks - Vesely is stronger, longer, taller, younger, a better three point shooter, more confident, and plays with more purpose.
George - Vesely is stronger, longer, taller, younger, a better defender, and has played against better competition.
You really think Vesely will be able to stop PF's in the NBA?
Why couldn't he? What has he done that makes you think he couldn't?
Vesely is also more athletic than Ebanks.
I dunno. I just feel safer taking a Ebanks or George over Vesely
I doubt any GM takes either over Vesely, but that's understandable.
How do you feel about Motiejunas?
Motiejunas....a little overrated
Some drafts I seen he's more 10-15 then 3-7 on this site. I think he might drop a bit. He's not a good defender and his rebounding is good but I don't believe he will be a 7 rpg guy at the NBA
With Vesely- I think he could be good but I don't believe he will be a really good player. Many people will have him as a lotto pick but I'm telling you: I don't believe he will be a top 10 player coming out of this draft
I don't have as good of a grasp on Motie as I do Vesely. I have seen him make some promising plays though, and I think he has an uncanny amount of potential. Not as much of a sure thing (to me anyway) as Vesely is.
I see him being drafted in the same area as Vesely, 10-15.
Vesely to me is a Prince/Jerebko/Battier type. Combo forward with remarkable intangibles.
Motie to me is a Bargnani/Ilyasova type. Athletic/mobile post player with an offensive arsenal.
I like that Jerebko comparison for Vessly ive seen him play and their similar. I think Lamarcus Aldridge is a good comparison for Motie, 6''11, runs the floor well, has a great mid range game, but not very good defensively.
Is not Lamarcus Aldridge...Not even close. Andrea Barnagni is a much better comparison.
Im not saying hell be as good but their playing styles are similar.
Why is everybody taking this topic seriously?
I just wanted you guys to blabber with me. Instead I have to defend Vesely as a player and I get bombarded with negative points...
Vesely sucks, John Bryants skeleton could beat him in a game of basketball......... oh wait he doesnt have any bones no wonder he looks like a blob.......
Yep hell be a top 21 pick..... in the NEL (national eating league)
Motie is definitely not Aldridge.
I've never seen like a ton of these guys play so I gotta ask...who do you think will be better, Vesely or George?
Jan Vesely is a lottery quality pick. I am just not sure if the GMs are smart enough to take him.
One key point is that Vesely's euro team contract is till like 2013 or something like that. Although, he can probably still somehow negiotiate a buyout (as his agent said he wants to go NBA as soon as he can).
I think the contract issue would be his only set back.
I think he's a better overall player than Motiejunas. I wouldn't mind taking him in the top 10.
I also like Paul George, so when I saw him going to 14th now, I think it's more fair ranking.
I don't like Devin Ebanks as much for the time being. He got potential and talent though, but at this point, he's 15~25.
The day Jan Vesely falls to the 21st pick...is the day I pack up the car and drive out to Portland to witness all of the magical nonsense that will get nomoney on the cover of Time magazine.
I love you too, DanEboy.
I really like this dude too from what I've seen.....I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out better than Dontas.....so he averaged 4 ppg this year....and Brandon Jennings averaged 5 in Europe last year....sorry bout the people who let that factor into their decision in this years draft....
He averaged 8.4 points per game on 57% percent shooting in about 21 minutes a game. He's only 19 and the season isn't over.
Vesely only seems to be underrated on this site. CollegeHoopsUpdate has him at 9, Draftexpress has him at 10, MyNBADraft has him at 10, Hoopshype at 11, and Chad Ford has him at 11 as well.
I think I had him at 16 a few months ago....like I like him more than I like Patrick Patterson....Whiteside....Devin Ebanks....I agree he won't go 21st....
Man ,I really like the Tayshaun Prince comparison I think/hope he will be as good as him,his buy out can be problem but hope not,as for Motiejunas as I said b4 I read that he will stay one more year as he has to buy his contract if he wanted to leave while so may be we will have one more year to watch him in the Eurocup
How did i miss this big ol ball of greatness called a thread?
I just wish Vesely falls to 21 now
lmao @ everyone that thought Scottie Reynolds would be a Lotto Pick...( in my Vincent Price's Laugh aaahahahahahahahahaahahaha
Jan Vesely is the most intriguing prospect I've seen in years. I've said it a few times on here but he is without a doubt the most athletic and best running 7 footer I've ever seen. It doesn't look natural at times given his size and his body control. This guy is going to be a great all around player in the NBA and I have the utmost confidence in him. He could stand to bulk up a bit as long as it doesnt hinder his athleticism, but regardless he is gonna be a guy who fills up the box score. Points, Boards, Assists, Blocks, Steals, 3s, gettin 2 the line, he's gonna do it all. He's a energy type guy who can bring that type of force to a team for 30+ minutes and should have a starter role early in his career in the NBA. I agree wit money, favorite prospect in the draft by leaps and bounds.
Who said Scottie Reynolds was going in the lottery?
I must have been watching a lot of 30 Rock around the time I wrote this.
Thanks for bringing it back Mr. Grobar.
