I posted a video on CelticsLife last week of a draft night interview with Frenchman Guerschon Yabusele, Boston's first-round pick at No. 16. His English isn't perfect, but it's plenty good enough. After speaking with Yabusele, Celtics.com reporter Marc D'Amico sent out this tweet:
Guerschon Yabusele told me he just started learning English within the last year, and his English is already good. Says a lot about his mind— Marc D'Amico (@Marc_DAmico) June 28, 2016
I couldn't agree more. By comparison, Bartolo Colon has been playing Major League Baseball in the U.S. for 648 years, and he still hasn't bothered to learn enough English to speak it in interviews.
