HoopsHype Jan Vesely + Trade rumors
And for teammates — even teammates who have only been here a few months — this isn’t just an Internet joke. “Yesterday obviously when I woke up I was sitting watching TV and I some point I decided to check the HoopsHype,” Marcin Gortat said on 106.7 The Fan Friday morning. “I was just shocked. I dropped the glass out of my hands and I was just shocked. Eric [Maynor] is a very good point guard. I don’t think he really got his opportunity to play, and he has to play because he’s pretty good. … For Jan, I was shocked because he was the first guy who helped me the most here on this team right after the trade. From Day One he helped me to settle down, set up everything here in Washington and he was great to me. I never had such a great friend from Day One. It doesn’t matter where he’s gonna play; we’re always gonna stick together. He’s my boy for life now.” Washington Post
