Jan Vesely, a talented forward who scan score, rebound and defend, left the NBA after three disappointing seasons with the Wizards and Nuggets and returned to Europe in 2014. He has played phenomenal there with Fenerbahce and the Czech Republic and there’s been rumblings about a potential return to the States down the road. With Vesely, it was not about lack of talent but lack of confidence while playing against NBA competition.
Well, this Kevin Durant dunk last night is not going to help him in confidence department. He got him pretty bad.
All in all, Vesely had a pretty strong performance with 17 points and five rebounds in a 81-111 loss vs. the Thunder. But that dunk is all we’re going to remember from this game probably.
