Thanks to an e-mail from a reader whose name I forgot, I just took at former Wiz draft pick and possibly future Wiz big man Vladimir Veremeenko's arm tattoo. It is baffling, to say the least. What in the world is the best basketball player in Belarus doing with a "W.W.J.D." tattoo on his left arm? And is that a basketball bracelet hanging around the praying hands, presumably around the hands of Jesus?
Transliterating such things back and forth from Cyrillic might be tricky, but I would think the WWJD question would be asked differently in that language, something like "CH.I.D.," once you've transliterated back into the Roman alphabet. So, why didn't he get the question in Cyrillic script? Do many Belarussians rock the WWJD look? Will he be wearing Gametyme apparel when he arrives stateside? And once you consider the basketball pendant, is the image sacrilegious or spiritual? This just begs so many questions. Here's hoping Vlad shows up for Summer League in Vegas, so someone can ask.
