Meet Your Draft Pick: Jan Vesely



    With their first-round pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Wizards took Jan Vesely at No. 6 overall.

    He immediately created a buzz by kissing his incredibly attractive girlfriend after being picked, and it’s clear that the Washington front office sees potential in the Czech big man.

    So ... who is Jan Vesely?

    Height: 6’11”
    Weight: 230
    Position: Forward
    Nickname: The Flying Czech

    That kiss had people more excited than the pick itself.

    He has an interesting way of psyching up teammates before a game.

    And he is a dunk machine.

    Welcome to D.C., Jan!
