Cool. Jiri Welsch, in addition to being the second Czech to play in the NBA, must surely be the first ever to be a starter. Via Cerny. The Baston coach says he's been the catalyst for a big improvement offensively.

It doesn't surprise me. He has a body made of rubber, or flubber. His joints bend in unnatural ways, kind of like a cartoon. He had this thing where he charged the lane and bent his body around defenders like Jim Carrey did in The Mask while throwing one part of his body after the other this way and that to dodge bullets.
