I Love John Wall

I know that I’m a little bit behind on this – but I love John Wall. In fact, I’m not behind on this at all. In March of 2010 I wrote a blog about March Madness Widow Syndrome and mentioned John Wall and Ashley Judd as great reasons to cheer for Kentucky.

Wall is great. And I don’t only mean as a basketball player. He is entertaining, young, and fresh and exactly what the fans in Washington needed. Wiz fans are sick of Gilbert Arenas and the bullshit that he brings to the table.

But with John Wall there is hope. It’s a cliché I know, but it won’t take long before #2 in your program is #1 in your heart.

So far this season the rookie has wowed the world by nearly dropping a triple double on the 76ers in his 3rd game in the NBA. He came up only 1 steal short of the mark that night. But then 8 days later against the Rockets Wall put it on the board with 19 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds. That’s right – a triple double in his 6th game in the pros. That’s wild. Oh and by the way, he also picked up 6 steals, 1 block and only turned the bar over 1 time in 42 minutes! That’s an elite NBA guard stat line my friends.

Wall’s name is also being mentioned with one of the all time greats as he continues to put up numbers that have only been matched or bettered by Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson. That’s high praise and a risky comparison – but the numbers don’t lie.

But the top moment of John Wall’s young career for me happened before he ever took a shot in the regular season. If you’ve never seen Wall “Dougie” you need to. It’s great. This is where the youthful enthusiasm comes into play.
