    And before anyone says it's the truth, of course it's the truth that George is better than Porter. But you don't have to share every truth with the public personally. This is a conversation to be had with his GM, not with the local news.

    Otto Porter had an incredible season, working his a$$ off, earning huge dollars which have made him attractive to a lot of teams. Wall saying this is quintessentially poor leadership. And this is not the first time, he handled the beef with Beal terribly too. The Wizards can't even afford to lose him. Imagine if he walks or develops chemistry issues with Wall now? Terrible decision by Wall.

    Oh, and they DON'T have the PF and C as he states. They have a mediocre C, and Porter had to play a lot of PF because Morris has improved nothing in years, remains an inefficient scorer, mediocre rebounder and a barely average defender.

    I don't know what he's complaining about - people's feelings get hurt when they figure out what he's worth.

    that's nothing. Wall has given more shocking in their honesty interviews.
    One in particular I think from last year, he talked about how there aren't many billboards with his name in D.C and he really appeared like an arrogant idiot.
    Another one he explained how he likes to fck around with various groupies and he doesn't have steady relationships.
    He's a very honest person and speaks his mind.

    I mean, he's got 84's poking out, at the club he's showing out. He's a player, ain't no doubt.

    This. Porter is obvious no PG, but the value that he brings at the money he's making would make every team in the league salivate. 24 year old 6'8 SF who shots 52% FG and 43% 3PT, while playing solid defense? Yeah, we'll gladly take him.

    Otto Porter is the kinda guy that would buy a homeless guy food when no one is watching. You can't throw that guy under the bus.

    There's no wall around his true feelings. Otto Porter would be perfect for this team.

    Otto Porter Fan Club, come get your man. :D



    SACRAMENTO — This is fine.

    Five games in, and the Wizards are off-kilter. And it’s not because of Friday night’s result, a disappointing loss to the Kings that dropped Washington to 1-4. It’s because of how they got there.

    John Wall, Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris all called out unnamed teammates for having “our own agendas” and lack of “sacrifice” following the 116-112 defeat. Coach Scott Brooks was more specific, saying that Otto Porter “can’t worry about” his shots. The Wizards have suffered defensive communication issues and other similar ailments for the first quintet of games this season.

    Wall is identifying the symptoms.

    “We’ve got guys that’s worried about who’s getting shots. …You should never worry about that,” he said. “No matter if you’re missing or making shots, you gotta be able to compete on the other end. You can’t do it on both ends of the floor, you don’t need to be...




    John Wall and Bradley Beal called out their teammates for having their "own agendas" after a 116-112 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. Washington dropped to 1-4 to start the season, with the pair of All-Star guards blasting the Wizards' effort on the defensive end of the floor, where Washington is giving up 122.8 points a game, second-worst in the league.

    "Sometimes we have our own agendas on the floor, whether it's complaining about shots, complaining about playing time, complaining about whatever it may be," Beal said. "We're worried about the wrong (expletive) and that's not where our focus needs to be and it's just going to continue to hurt us."

    Wall agreed after the Wizards committed a season-high 21 turnovers and wilted in the fourth quarter.

    "Everybody on their own agenda," said Wall. "We showed glimpses when we do stuff as a team, we show how good we can be, and then we go back to trying to do it individually, and that's mostly on the defensive end."

    Washington led by six heading into the fourth, but Sacramento took control in the final frame. The Kings scored the first seven points of the fourth to erase the deficit, then extended the lead to 110-104 with two minutes left.

    The Wizards made a late run to get within 113-112, but they turned it over three times in the final 24 seconds.

    "We got guys who's worried about who's getting shots, where the ball is going on the offensive end," Wall said. "We should never worry about that. No matter if we're missing or making shots, we got to be able to compete on the other end, and if you can't do it on both ends of the floor, you don't need to be playing."

    There only thing I remember about John Wall, we were staying at the Aria in Vegas on memorial day weekend a few years back.

    The place had a lot of NBA players around there. Saw a guy talking to Rashard Lewis I think wearing a John Wall shirt from the back that kind of looked John Wall but I was like "nah, what kind of person would be wearing a shirt with his own name on the back casually?"

    John Wall.
