Former Wildcat Wall Having An All Star Type Season

For John Wall this year is truly showcasing the talent that all Wildcat fans knew he possessed coming out of college. Wall has stayed healthy through 31 games and is playing very well all over the court for the Wizards who have needed a boost for quite some time. While Wizards management has went out and tried to bring in more talent for Wall to play with it hasn’t panned out as well as they would’ve hoped. While Nene and Marcin Gortat are good big men to have they just lack the bench depth, the depth consists of guys they drafted high in the draft that have not panned out yet or older guys who are out of their prime. Examples of busts in their drafting scheme are Jan Vesely and Otto Porter who haven’t lived up to their potential as Wall and Bradley Beals help as scorers. Wall is averaging 19 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds per game for the Wizards and all John and the Wizards need is just a little more help is that too much to ask? For Wall and the Wizards this next year’s draft will hopefully give them that 3rd option alongside Wall and Beal to make them a force in this league if not this could be an even worse situation in D.C.
