1990 – Happy 24th birthday to No. 24, Denver Nuggets power forward Jan Vesely (@JanVesely24). He just finished his third NBA season. At the trade deadline, the Washington Wizards participated in a three-team trade in which they sent the former sixth overall pick to the Denver Nuggets.

Unfortunately for Vesely, the Nuggets did not make the playoffs for the first time in more than a decade. His former Washington team is in the postseason, and the man he was traded for, Andre Miller, is making an impact for Randy Wittman’s squad. Vesely has yet to taste the playoffs in his NBA career, so he hopes to help Denver get back to the postseason in 2015.
