    The wolves announcers: To be honest I wouldn’t enjoy playing alongside John Wall and I would think his teammates are not enjoying it either!

    Even if Wall wasn’t sewer trash on offense, he would still be a negative because of his defense.

    He absolutely cannot play defense and never has in his career. He runs around and gambles like an idiot constantly.

    Truthfully - I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player miss more layups other than WB - it seems like he tries to draw a foul on every layup....

    Take away him forcing and missing 6-10 layups a game (it seems) and his shooting really hasn’t been that bad

    Wall gotta be zeroing in on Andre Drummond after the 6-25 and 8-30 games.

    it wasn’t the case to start the year, but Wall has been so bad that he’s now worse than Westbrook this year, and if u paid attention to how Westbrook’s played, that’s pretty damn hard to do

    Russ: 22, 10, and 10 on 43/30/61 shooting splits...47% eFG, 50% TS, 100 offensive rating

    Wall: 21, 3, and 7 on 41/32/74 shooting splits...46% eFG, 50% TS, and a 99 offensive rating

    Russ is ahead because of more rebounds and assists, and because he’s had a few games clearly better than Wall’s best game this season such as 41, 10, and 8 against BK and a 40 point triple double against the Bucks

    He’s terrible and has the worst contract in the league.

    Meanwhile Chris Paul is leading a team to the third best record in the league lol.

    That Paul Westbrook trade was 2x worse than the Harden trade for Kevin Martin.

    Lol not even remotely true in any sense.


    Like Paul leading the Thunder to a 40 win bubble season first round loss is....in your mind, equivalent to 8 seasons of peak James Harden?

    Lololol. No.

    Not by me, was against this trade from the get go.

    And saw his selfishness early.

    Wood top 3 finisher.

    Now if he could get more touches/attempts at the rim ...

    Looking at YOU:

    WALL AND SILAS

    Still, Russ is the better player.

    It was true at time of trade and it's TRUE now.

    Russ has ALWAYS been better than Wall.

    I have run the numbers, it is actually closer to 25% chance he can still be a star....in China.
