Welcome To The John Wall Show
By Cardell Dudley
There is no question, that Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has not only taken his game to a new level, but also is having the best season of his career while doing so. Wall is averaging 18 points, 10.5 assist (second in the NBA currently), 4.7 rebounds and 2 steals per game (tied for second in the NBA as well) this season while leading the Wizards to their current record of 20-8, which is the best start for the Wizards franchise since their championship hey day during the late 70's. While players emerge every season to make their mark in the league, the time when you truly know a player has reached rarified air with their stellar play lies not only with the consistency of their high level play, but routinely seizing the moment. This season, Wall has done just that. In the Wizards first Christmas game since 2008 when they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Wall rose to the occasion in front of a national audience. On the road playing the woeful Knicks in historic Madison Square Garden, Wall put on a show that would make performers on Broadway jealous. Wall would finish with 24 points (10-17 FG), 11 assist and 6 rebounds as the Wizards cruised to a 102-91 victory over the Knicks. As the current NBA All Star game votes leader for Eastern Conference guards with 299,209 votes, after a performance like that for the world to see, expect that number to increase dramatically. Right now, it appears the only individual who can stop John Wall is John Wall which is a beautiful thing for Wizards faithful and a nightmare for the opposition around the NBA. Take a look at the great performance from Wall below.
