To be completely honest, I’m not sure why NBA agent David Falk decided to take time out of his days and share his thoughts on John Wall and his potential. Perhaps John Wall wasn’t willing to let him be his agent? I dont know. But check out the comments via the Washington Post.
Falk was extremely clear on his stance about the Wizards and Wall in particular.
“You guys are in dreamland. Because this team [stinks] so bad you guys want John Wall to be someone he will never be.”

“You can develop your jump shot all you want, but if you don’t know how to play more than an up-and-down game by the time you’re about 20 as a point guard, the chances of learning are very slim

Longtime NBA agent David Falk, a Washington Wizards season ticket holder, went to great lengths to savagely rip the team, specifically the team's point guard, John Wall.
UPDATE: Falk has issued an apology for his comments.
Agent David Falk, who is best known for representing Michael Jordan throughout the legend’s NBA career, apologized Thursday for ripping Washington Wizards guard John Wall in an article that appeared in The Washington Post Thursday. Matters began on Sunday when The Post’s Mike Wise wrote a column in which he was supportive of Wall. The theme was that the expectations of being...
David Falk has represented some of the greatest players in NBA history — Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Adrian Dantley, James Worthy — but taking that illustrious list into consideration, it’s safe to say the word “super” hasn’t been applied to his agent tag for quite some time. Today, Washington Post columnist Mike Wise profiled the former super agent, who had some not...
