Found February 07, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Wizards John Wall’s return to the court has been understated this season, probably because the Wizards season overall has been uneventful. But during Knicks vs. Wizards on Wednesday night, John Wall showed why he’s a player you can’t afford to sleep on.
