    Disagree with him saying Javale McGee took a lot of shots.

    McGee shot like 54%. He should be taking shots. Wall on the other hand, well, he takes way too many shots for such a bad shooter.

    I don't particularly have high hopes for Wall ever "getting it" in the NBA. Too many mistakes, and too few smart plays. He didn't seem to make any improvements in those areas this season either. He has all the talent in the world though.

    I would give Wall the benefit of the doubt...he had to play with Nick Young, Javale McGee, and Blatche his first two years..Seems like the Wizards couldnt wait to get rid of them..I still think eventually Wall could be a top 10 pg in the NBA..

    From the Wizards games I saw, those morons around him had as much to do with this as anything. They ran nothing resembling a structured offense

    Hope Wall can develop into a star and their FO gets their head on straight and starts bringing in smart vet's to mentor that team.

    Either way he should have straightened those guys out while they were playing for Washington. He may have tried I don't know since I wasn't in the lockerroom.

    Those two were a huge problem but John Wall has also been a problem in his shot career. No jumper, turnover problems, and his motor has been questioned publicly by his coach.

    McGee didnt take a hefty amount of shots. More within those attempts was some goofy shots outside of what he's capable of. Nick Young...yeah the blackest holiest of black holes.

    Jordan Crawford actually takes the SAME amount of shots as Young, so he be chuckin' too. But Crawford knows what passing is, so thats a bit of a plus.

    Isn't Wall that dancer who part times as an NBA player?

    True dat. Kinda is ironic of him calling other people out when he just finished his soph. year and still has character issues of his own (mostly translated on the court)

    I haven't watched Wall much at all this season since I didn't get league pass this year b/c of the work stoppage. When did he develop character issues?

    He was a very high-effort player his rookie year.

    young and mcgee did make some bonehead plays and young specifically took a lot of bad shots. After the trades, the Wizards went 11-14.

    I think playing in Washington would force you to develop character issues.

    OHH NO ROSE!!

    Wall can't shoot 3's, but that doesn't mean he sucks or can't be a good pg. The man has skills and is improving.

    Playing with Nick Young, Blatche and Crawford must be like a nightmare for a pg, once you pass you never get it back again.
