Wall is only three seasons into his NBA career, but that has yet to happen. The former Kentucky Wildcat has averaged a decent 16 points and eight assists per game over his young career, but he has not made the type of impact many expected he would.

The Upcoming Off-season Will Be Key for the Washington Wizards

Next year will be make-or-break for the Wizards After last night’s 95-90 loss at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers that saw the Wizards score 33 first quarter points and jump out to a 13 point lead, then only 32 points over the next 24 minutes, I immediately starting thinking about the off-season.

Wizards John Wall Thinks he’s Deserves a Max Contract

If John Wall deserves a max contract, than I do too.
