Found January 01, 2012 on Washington Times:
No rest for the weary is a phrase that could easily apply to Wizards point guard John Wall. After facing All-Star point guard Deron Williams to start the season in the home opener against the New Jersey Nets, Wall had to face Brandon Jennings on Friday night in Milwaukee. Returning ...

Video: John Wall dunks on 6'11 center

Greg Stiemsma a 6’11 undrafted free agent had his first career start for the Boston Celtics tonight. I’d have to say thanks to John Wall of the Washington Wizards it was a memorable one but for the wrong reason. Wall had a highlight reel dunk on/over him. Now in all honesty, Stiemsma did have a good first start. He scored 13 points with seven rebounds and two blocks over 21...

Is John Wall the NBA's Best Point Guard 21 Years Old or Younger?

If the Celtics got tired chasing around John Wall on Sunday night, wait until they have to come right back and do it again Monday. Wall, the Wizards' lightning-fast point guard, is at the forefront of a strong generation of point guards. In addition to Wall, there are at least five other players in the NBA who could stake a claim to being the best budding floor general in the...

Dunk of the Night: John Wall goes lefty to serve up a facial

Jump with caution.

John Wall dunks, gets technical foul

The Wizards still haven’t won a game, but they keep adding to the highlight reel. This one is notable for two reasons: it’s a pretty swell dunk by John Wall, and he was given a technical foul for preening and/or continuing to exist after the dunk. I do love to criticize players for celebrating individual plays during losses, but I’m not sure how the world was made a better...

John Wall, Wizards show improvement in loss to Celtics

Washington Wizards guard John Wall had his best game of the season — 19 points on 6 of 13 shooting and perhaps best of all: eight assists to one turnover. Wall's progress is a good sign, but the end result for the Wizards was the same as the first three, ...

John Wall’s growth stunted by lack of veterans around him

John Wall was everybody’s pick to have a breakout season, so much so that during preseason prediction season it felt like you had to choose someone else and not take the obvious route. So far the Wizards are 0-4 and Wall has been pedestrian. He’s only shooting 32 percent on the year — not only…

John Wall dunks on Greg Stiemsma a 6-11 Center

John Wall is one of the most explosive players in the NBA, too bad he plays for one of the worst teams in the league in the Washington Wizards.  If he played for another team he would probably be getting more pub. On Monday night the Wizards traveled to Boston.  The Celtics have been hurt by injury so far this season.  So Greg Stiemsma a 6’11 undrafted free agent...

John Wall shines, but Rajon Rondo is better as Celtics top Wizards

Before the start of Sunday’s game against Boston, Wizards Coach Flip Saunders told John Wall to have fun again. The point guard did just that, and as a result, Wall turned in his best game statistically. The No. 1 overall pick in 2010 had a team-high 19 points and eight assists, and he added seven rebounds, a steal and a block in nearly 39 1 / 2 minutes. That production, however...

Kings have no intention of moving DeMarcus Cousins

When asked about his good friend and former Kentucky teammate DeMarcus Cousins’ possible trade demand, John Wall wasn’t allowed to give an elaborate comment after the Wizards’ 94-86 loss to Boston. A Wizards staffer interrupted the questioner, leading to an awkward pause before Wall eventually said, “I heard about it, but I don’t know what’s going on.” Read full article...

Wall Gets a Technical for Looking

The Wizards racked up technical fouls Monday night, including a pair that had coach Flip Saunders tossed from the game in the first quarter. But it was a technical called on John Wall that had us shaking our heads. Wall drove hard, dunked on Celtics center Greg Stiemsma and gave him a “who’s your daddy” stare down. The ref, apparently offended by the glare, whistled Wall...

John Wall Devastates Greg Stiemsma, JaVale McGee Screams Quite Loudly

For a little guy, Washington Wizards' John Wall sure can bring down the house with some outstanding dunks. Case in point - Washington's visit to Boston to face the Celtics where Wall threw one down on Boston's big man Greg Stiemsma. And if you are like me and thought, " Who in the heck is this Greg dude?," well this will sure make you remember him going forward...

John Wall Posterizes Boston's Greg Stiemsma (Video)

For those of you looking for the NBA poster dunk of the night, we have this impressive slam by Washington Wizards guard John Wall on Boston Celtics center Greg Stiemsma:

Open thread: Game 5, Wizards at Celtics

The Wizards (0-4) are still the NBA’s only winless team as they conclude a home-and-home, back-to-back series against the Boston Celtics. John Wall played his best game of the season (19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds), but fellow Kentucky alum Rajon Rondo was much better, finishing with a triple-double (18 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds) as the Wizards lost 94-86...

Celtics win 100-92 over the Washington Wizards & Improve to 3-3

Tonight the Boston Celtics faced off against the athletic, John Wall powered, Washington Wizards. The Celtics were looking to get back to a .500 record, after the convincing 94-86 win last night with Rajon Rondo leading the way. The Wizards were grasping for their first win of the season (and the new year) after racking up their 4th loss (0-4). With Jermaine O'Neal out for the...
