07:05 AM ET 05.14 | So hostile is Jan Vesely of free throws that he once let Jordan Crawford try to take them for him. Vesely's fear of free throws was known by his teammates and the lost faith in his own abilities was displayed throughout a lost season in which he often lacked the aggressive, frenzied play that led the Wizards to take him sixth overall in 2011. When asked what Vesely needed to focus on this offseason, Coach Randy Wittman didn't hesitate to mention that the 6-foot-11 big man had to worry about more than developing a consistent jump shot. "He needs to work on his head first," Wittman said. ... Vesely regressed in every statistical category and barely finished with more points (126) and rebounds (122) than personal fouls (107).

Tall European Dudes taken High in the 1st round over the past 10 or so years:

Darko Milicic, Nikoloz Tskitishvili, (Mr. Softie) Bargnani, Enes Kanter...

I'd say the results are mixed - but I think that's too kind...

Tried to find a way to get Yi Jianlian in the conversation - but he get's his own category :-)
