Jan Vesely likes to posterize

John Wall is a terrific basketball talent, but not the world’s greatest quote. Which might not matter to you, but can sometimes matter to me.

Jan Vesely? I have no idea how the Czech forward will do on the court, but the man is already dripping with quotes. Like, when Comcast SportsNet's Chris Miller asked him about dunks on Thursday night, he laughed a wise and sinister Central European laugh, and then said “I like to posterize.” Bring on the smelling salts.

There was also his post-draft interview with ESPN’s Mark Jones, in which he said “I like the John Wall game.” Jones then asked about being the European Blake Griffin.

“I don’t know, I think Blake Griffin is American Jan Vesely,” the kid replied. (Go to 3:50 or so.)
