John Wall had blogger's row in a frenzy last night as he relentlessly knocked down 12 jumpers from just about every spot on the floor against the New Orleans Hornets. 15,000-plus bulging eyes witnessed one of the more memorable night's of John's career, which began with three first half 3-pointers en route to a season-high 29 points. John discussed his surging improvement shooting the ball and also briefed us on the 2nd half adjustments that enabled the Wizards to pull away for the 96-87 victory. He also expressed the displeasure of his Kentucky Wildcats getting blown out by Vanderbilt in the SEC tourney.
And there was no surprise in Martell Webster's friendly post-game antics. Not caught on tape, but Webster was fairly animated about his love for classic Nickelodeon. As he was getting dressed, he started naming several cartoons and shows most of us watched growing up and was particularly displeased after learning some folks hadn't watched or even heard of "Fraggle Rock." At the end of his interview, Web blessed us with a quick snippet from the theme song of "DuckTales."
"If [John] can keep [his shooting] consistent, it's going to make him a very versatile point guard. Very dangerous." -- Martell Webster
"When you play with a lot of confidence, you play at a high level. -- John Wall
