Zapruder Footage of Fesenko in Ukraine Vs. Hungary

August 27th, 2009 | by Spencer Hall

This summer has been a bust for Kyrylo Fesenko by almost any measure. It’s all been widely documented: Skipping the Jazz summer league to play with the Ukrainian National Team and then playing poorly and eventually having some kind of run-in with the coach that led to Fesenko leaving the team early. There were even rumors that the final straw was leaving the bench to take a smoke during a game.

I find the smoking story hard to believe, so I’ve embedded the entirety of the Ukraine/Hungary game, so if somebody who speaks a little Russian/Ukrainian/Hungarian wants to watch and let us know what they say, it might give us a little insight.

    Emphasis on the rumors. Fess has been known to do a lot of things. Smoking during a game has NEVER been one of those things.
