Jan Vesely's lack of confidence in his sophomore season in the NBA this year was evident to teammates and coaches on the Washington Wizards, stemming from his regression in production.
In Randy Wittman's mind, it is clear what Vesely must fix in the offseason.
“He needs to work on his head first,” Wittman said.
“I was thinking, ‘You’re not going to get away with it,’" A.J. Price said of Vesely's lack of confidence.
Vesely regressed in every statistical category and barely finished with more points (126) and rebounds (122) than personal fouls (107).
“It’s hard. Especially after my first season in the NBA, I was playing a lot. It’s hard not to find my position on the team and stay ready every game when you’re not playing,” Vesely said. “I just try to fight it. I didn’t know what time, when I’m going on the court so it’s hard to stay ready. I did my best, and I tried to work hard every day.”
