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.

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?"

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.

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?

John Wall Had Ish Smith Jumping All Over The Place Tonight

First, Wall literally pump-faked Smith over his entire body. Smith, however, was unfazed. He quickly bounced back and blocked the real shot. Pretty impressive. Later, as the third quarter was winding down, Wall shook Ish out of his shoes and into the Magic bench before dumping it off to Kevin Seraphin for an easy… » 1/14/13 11:02pm 1/14/13 11:02pm

Watch Maurice Evans Run Away From The Chance To Be On The Jeremy Lin…

Yes, Knicks insta-sensation Jeremy Lin shook John Wall with a nasty crossover last night, on his way to a highlight dunk against the Wizards. But the true measure of Linsanity comes from Washington's Maurice Evans, who sees No. 17 coming, takes a tentative slide step toward stopping him, then changes his mind and… » 2/09/12 4:50pm 2/09/12 4:50pm

Here's Video Of John Wall's Failed Attempt To Throw A Baseball More…

When the Washington Nationals called on Wizards guard John Wall to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of yesterday's interleague game against the Baltimore Orioles, it was a decent nod to everybody within the same NBA market. When Wall threw the ball, though, it was an affront to physics and the properties of… » 6/18/11 11:30am 6/18/11 11:30am

John Wall Also Knew The Cavs Were Going To Win The Lottery. HMM.

TrueHoop's Henry Abbott asks that we take a second look at this throwaway line from Harvey Araton's piece on Kyrie Irving in the New York Times today: "Tuesday night, John Wall — last year's first pick by Washington — whispered 'Cleveland' in [Irving's] ear before the cameras turned on."
