Denver Nuggets forward Jan Vesely put on a clinic against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. He may have only scored five points and grabbed three rebounds in 12 minutes of action, but Vesely wowed the crowd when he broke no one’s ankles with a sick up-fake early in the second quarter.
No Blazers defender was playing Vesely close, so he decided it was the perfect moment to bust out the up-fake, step-back jump shot. It would have been even nastier if he drained the shot, but the move in itself was worth the price of admission.
Remember when Ray Allen said Vesely doesn’t know how to play basketball and I accused old man Ray of being grumpy? Ehh…
