UPDATE: We have a name. That tall drink of water is Eva Kodouskova.
Never heard of Jan Vesely? Same here. But the guy put on a show with his girlfriend after her was selected by Washington with the #6 pick. Who is the blond that started grabbing Jan’s hair?
Here’s what we know about Eva Kodouskova:
• 6′ 3″
• Studies architecture
• Plays club basketball in the Czech Republic for Trutnov.
• Used to have a Facebook page. It has been deep sixed.
We also know that Czech Republic newspapers and websites are infatuated with your infatuation with their new basketball icon and his girlfriend. Headlines around the world are reflecting that.
As translated by those Czech Republic newspapers:
“I do not understand such a reaction to a kiss. It was a great moment for me, my family. Eva is my girlfriend, it was a spontaneous kiss,” said Vesely overseas journalists moment, which took almost more than the mere fact that it was a Czech basketball player drafted in sixth place, so the best Czech player in history.
Good work, America.
