Jan Vesely’s Worldly Wizardly: ‘I devote my summer to improve my shooting’

posted on July 13, 2012

While we wonder about the possibilities of another Jan Vesely nickname (after the cover of June’s Czech Basketmag was revealed), Jan has recently spent 10 days of June in Havirov, Czech Republic working out with Washington Wizards developmental coach Joe Connelly. The main focus of the workouts has been shooting jump shots, driving to the basket off the dribble and improving Jan’s handle.
“He has to make a progress in these three things in order to become a more valuable player,” said Connelly. Jan said he’s enjoying Connelly’s stay and that together they ran a clinic for local youth basketball players.

Jan and Joe also recently visited the local town hall and met with the mayor of Havirov.

Seems like Jan’s having the time of his life. This includes … recent media appearances.
