Wizards Were Up Against a Wall

John WallExcuse the play on words; I just couldn’t seem to help myself. ¬†When the Washington Wizards announced a five-year, $80 million contract extension for John Wall, the first thing that came to my mind was, “they had no other choice. The team was literally up against a Wall”

The 22-year-old point guard has been everything the Wizards could have hoped for when they drafted him in 2010. There’s simply not another young talent in the world worth losing him for.

As I detailed in John Wall’s scouting report, he has the size, athletic ability and basketball skills to eventually become the best player in the NBA. Like most young players, he does have his weaknesses but most of them can easily be attributed to his inexperience.

Wall certainly needs to learn how to become a better leader and it would be nice if he developed the ability to make everyone around him better. But none of his current weaknesses outweigh all of the potential he clearly has.

Now that he has a brand new, big-money contract, it’s time for him to take that next step and lead the Wizards to some postseason success. Anyone with John Wall’s talent deserves to be in the playoffs every year.
