Favorite moments from Draft night

Jan Vesely's NBA Post Draft Interview. He talks about learning to win at Partizan and bringing that to the Wizards. Also listen for Mike Prada's question and Jan's answer at about the 1:16 mark.

A couple of my favorite moments from draft night:

ESPN's Mark Jones asking about Vesely being the European Blake Griffin, and Vesely said "I think he's the American Jan Vesely" . Someone should talk to Jan about dissing guys like Griffin, they tend to remember stuff like that. But whatever, at least he's confident.

Another gem from a "global player" when Mark Jones asked Valanciunas why he thought his game was like Chris Bosh, and Valanciunas said: "I don't know. I have not so strong body." Left me in stitches. (uh.... Chris Bosh, you watching this? )

And then there was "THE KISS".... Nuff said. The guy's a stud in my book - I don't care if he can play basketball or not.

After the jump, two post draft interviews with Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton.

Here are two videos from Draft night:

Chris Singleton's NBA Post Draft Interview. Chris Singleton knows his weaknesses.... and he's a well spoken young man. And I loved the fact that he talked about "breaking down" teams, opponents, film etc... Preparing for the opponent: "You have to scout teams. That's one thing we did a lot." ; Something that I hope the rest of the Wizards youngsters learn from him.
