Kevin Seraphin's press conference after the Wizards made him the 17th pick in the NBA Draft last night was all sorts of interesting. He walked in with a Bulls cap on, since the Wizards' trade for Kirk Hinrich isn't official until July 8, and yet immediately talked about how psyched he was to go to D.C. Later, his translator nearly stopped the press conference because he thought nobody had any questions.â†µ
And then, there was this part. Apparently annoyed with his translator cutting him off, Seraphin decided to reveal that, hey, he actually knows English! Oh, and he also believes he can pound people with his fists, or something.â†µ
I really appreciate the translator doing his job here. Translating from English to English is pretty tough.
