John Wall has become one of the league’s best point guards this season and has thus affected the Washington Wizards in evolving into an Eastern Conference contender.

 

Wall has developed from a young rookie being put on a team with tons of pressure as the #1 overall draft pick in 2010. He lived up to expectations eventually making an All-Star appearance in 2014, as well as leading the Washington Wizards to their first playoff run in six years.

Though they were eliminated by the Pacers in the 2nd round, the Washington Wizards being led by John Wall is now a dominant force in the east that is easily recognized by the rest of the NBA.

    this guy is just a immature cocky high school player. yeah he can shoot and
    he can dribble a basketball but he has no talent to play in the league so
    he should shut up and respect those who have made it. Instead of trash
    talking, he should be getting some insight on how to become a better
    player.

    lol, if anything I think Tyrek got the best of it. I mean, John Wall
    outplays NBA players every day – keeping up with him at all as a high
    schooler is pretty good…

    LMAO people are still dropping negative comments about JW even in 2015?
    Stop tryna make yourself feel better. Are you a top 5 PG in the NBA? No.
    Have you been in an All star game? No. Can you go up against some of the
    greatest 1 on 1 defenders in the world and make them look like 10yr olds?
    No. JW has done nothing but shit all over the fucking haters. Have some
    respect for someone who went out and did it his way and is now the
    franchise player of his team.

    I really didnt think that Wall’s dunk was that great. Sure he kind of
    jumped over the dude, but Wall’s 6’4 and every person I know who’s that
    tall and who plays basketball, at high school level, could do that any day.
    Also Coger’s defense sucked imo, he looked really sad for high school.

    0:59 carrying violation. Wall beat the kid 5-3 with one of the baskets (the
    dunk) being done while the kid was looking at the camera man distracted.

    I hardly think this qualifies at ”shuts up highschool kid”. An NBA player
    vs a highschool player who isn’t even a starter at juco should be a lot
    more dominating than this…

    To anyone thinking John Wall was even trying he wasn’t even giving 10%
    effort. That punk ass kid thinking he’s a legend. That kid is gonna be
    selling insurance he has no game that jump shot is broken and he’s out of
    shape. Wall is top 2-3 PG in the league lOL

    A high school kid blocking john walls shot and scoring on him. Looks pretty
    good to me. John wall should be embarrassed..

    This kid will never make it in the NBA. His attitude is what will keep him
    from succeeding. All I see are kids playing what I call “Drag Queen”
    basketball. These are players who over emphasis things like the crossover.
    They try to break a person’s “ankles” as they call it. So its all about
    that instead of playing the game as a team player. I am 52 and play with
    kids all the time who I can outsmart. They are faster, due to age, but I
    use my intelligence to beat them. Many times they cross someone over and
    miss the layup. Its about show instead of the game.

    College Coaches will not allow that nor will NBA if he ever gets there.

    Lol at everybody who gets hype off this kid scoring a couple on some jump
    shots. Not only is wall practically walking the entire game other than his
    drives…he’s an NBA superstar…the man guaranteed is not fresh. You’re
    talking hours on top of hours of practice,lifting,more practice,more
    lifting…y’all just don’t understand lol

    The kid could honestly beat the some of the lower tier players in the nba.
    Not fucking John Wall though.

    Wall waited until he was talking to someone with his head turned on that
    last dunk. I really think that guy did not play too badly against him.
    John started trying as hard as he could, realized he had to.

    Idk about shutting the kid up, to be honest, i look at shutting someone up
    by not letting them score once. Making it a totally one sided match. So
    that the kid understands how big a gap there is between me and him. It
    seems like john wasn’t really trying but he let his guard down and this kid
    got some shots in.

    this kid is good but seriously, compare to John, he’s not even closer. U
    can see those basic move, dribble, the ability to keep balance and finish,
    this kids has a long way to go. But of course he’s way batter than me. LOL

    Fast forward 3 years…

    John Wall is a top 6 point guard leading his team and will be an all star
    starter.

    Tyrek Coger is red shirting at a juco. Last year he averaged 2.2 points and
    4 rebounds….

    it irritates me when everyone leaves off John Wall as a top 5 pg, they
    would always have kyrie ahead, when if you look at the stats, john wall WAY
    ahead
