Let's All Watch A Bunch Of John Wall 360s

Now that the Wizards have righted the ship after a late-February skid, we can go back to marvelling at the ridiculous shit John Wall pulls off, like this 360 layup against a traffic cone named Matt Barnes last night: » 3/21/15 1:32pm 3/21/15 1:32pm

John Wall Hurtles Five Rows Deep To Save Loose Ball

John Wall is probably the fastest player in the NBA. Usually he uses this speed to terrify defenses and make opponents look like fools as he stops on a dime for a pull-up jumper, but tonight it was paying customers that saw him flying towards them. Good hustle John, but be careful out there. » 3/17/15 12:10am 3/17/15 12:10am

Boogie Cousins And John Wall Put On A Show; Some Team Also Won I Guess

A point guard and a center generally can't duel in the way we usually think of players dueling—directly, one-on-one, attacking each other at both ends. Apart from the occasional defensive switch or confrontation at the rim, they'll mostly compete from a distance, and indirectly, via their teams and the scoreboard. … » 3/15/15 1:15pm 3/15/15 1:15pm

Uh, Guys? I Think The Wizards Forgot To Fire Randy Wittman?

Coming into Sunday's game in Detroit, the Washington Wizards had lost two straight and 9 of 13, a month-long stretch of almost uniformly horrendous basketball in which they've fallen from second to fifth in the East. After the 38-point beating they took from the Cavs at home this past Friday, even that fifth-place… » 2/24/15 1:58pm 2/24/15 1:58pm

I Can't Stop Watching John Wall Chop The Nuggets With This Slick Pass

John Wall was at his very best last night in Denver: hanging 19 points and 16 assists on the Nuggets, snatching the endgame away with a flurry of buckets and assists, doing that John Wall thing where the court and the basket and all the players start to seem like a big circuitboard and the ball is just a signal… » 1/26/15 11:59am 1/26/15 11:59am

John Wall Is In Control

You may have skipped yesterday's Christmas Day game between the Knicks and Wizards, in part because the craptacular Knicks were involved, and in part because a certain level of pacing is required when there are 12 hours of basketball to watch. If you did skip it, you didn't miss the greatest game ever (spoiler alert:… » 12/26/14 11:17am 12/26/14 11:17am

Quincy Acy Tries To Swing On John Wall, Small Brawl Ensues

The Knicks are getting outclassed by the Wizards today, and New York's frustration boiled over in the fourth quarter. With John Wall driving to the hoop, Quincy Acy — perhaps trying to stop another 360-degree layup — hits Wall with a forearm shiver at the right elbow. Wall was having none of that shit, though, and… » 12/25/14 2:23pm 12/25/14 2:23pm

Wizards Win On Bradley Beal Alley-Oop Layup With 0.8 Seconds Left

Bradley Beal still looks a bit off after missing the first three weeks of the season with a fractured wrist, but this is sure to raise his spirits. The Wizards entered the fourth quarter down eight to the Magic, but a furious rally led by John Wall tied the game on Rasual Butler's free throw with 16 seconds left.… » 12/10/14 9:54pm 12/10/14 9:54pm

John Wall Collapses In Tears After Emotional Post-Game Interview

Last season, Wizards guard John Wall befriended cancer patient Miyah Telemaque-Nelson and helped the little girl meet Nicki Minaj. Miyah died today at the age of six, and an inspired Wall scored 26 points with 17 assists in leading Washington to a double-OT win over the Celtics. After the game, he was left… » 12/08/14 10:25pm 12/08/14 10:25pm

John Wall Destroyed The Lakers Last Night

Kobe Bryant and Nick Young hit a bunch of fluky long jumpers in a row during the second quarter of the Lakers' game in DC last night; with around six minutes left in the half they led by 11 points, and if you saw the score (47-36) crawl across the bottom of your screen just then, you might've thought, Damn, they're… » 12/04/14 1:22pm 12/04/14 1:22pm

Why Colin Cowherd Keeps Getting Away With This John Wall Shit

John Wall won't make Team USA this year. This is a shame, because John Wall is fun and it's fun to see John Wall surrounded by players who aren't Washington Wizards. It's a shame also because Colin Cowherd has another reason to run his mouth about John Wall. » 8/06/14 4:11pm 8/06/14 4:11pm

Colin Cowherd Is Never Going To Stop Talking About John Wall

WDRB's Rick Bozich wrote a column on Monday in which he recalled the time ferret-faced radio huckster Colin Cowherd went on the air and essentially called John Wall a nigger. Bozich was critical of Cowherd, which led to Cowherd going on the air today and once again fucking that chicken. » 4/22/14 4:29pm 4/22/14 4:29pm

Oh Hell, Root For The Wizards: John Wall's Brave, Stubborn Playoff Run

If you have watched much Washington Wizards basketball over the past four seasons, first of all, why, and I am so sorry—but also, you have seen John Wall chase down a ballhandler in transition, take off like a fucking F/A-18 off a carrier deck, and swat the absolute shit out of the ball. It's really something. » 4/22/14 3:10pm 4/22/14 3:10pm

The Dunk Contest Field Has Been Announced, And It's Not Terrible

ESPN's Marc Stein has the scoop on which six players will be competing in this year's dunk contest, and it's actually a pretty strong field. Paul George, John Wall, Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes, Terrence Ross, and Ben McLemore will be this year's competitors. » 2/06/14 4:01pm 2/06/14 4:01pm

Someone Wrote The World's Dumbest Column About John Wall's New Tats

This, from the Washington Post's Jason Reid, is not so much a column as it is an extended pageant answer. It's as if someone had just asked: "Miss DC, do you think the Washington Wizards should give John Wall a max contract in light of his recently revealed predilection for body art?" And Miss DC had replied: » 6/25/13 10:35am 6/25/13 10:35am

Michael Jordan's Former Agent Thinks John Wall Is Just The Worst…

Over the weekend, the Washington Post's Mike Wise wrote a column about Wizards point guard John Wall's recent encouraging play. For whatever reason, this made former superagent David Falk very mad, mad enough to call up Wise and go on a tirade against Wall and the Wizards organization. Lucky for us, Wise used his… » 2/14/13 4:00pm 2/14/13 4:00pm

John Wall Blocks Carmelo, Jukes Out Jason Kidd, Reminds Us That He's…

Remember when you saw a John Wall highlight reel for the first time? My first experience with him came courtesy of this mixtape from his high school days, in which Wall fast-twitches all over various high school gyms and generally looks like a space alien come to destroy our previous notions of what a basketball… » 2/07/13 2:30pm 2/07/13 2:30pm
