Wall in his rookie year looked better than this year so far. It's a small sample size but it's very concerning to me.
Way to take ownership John.REPORTER: You got off to a bad start with your four turnovers in the first quarter. Was it hard to get on track after that tough start? Was that a part of it?
WALL: That wasn't it at all. They were great passes. It was just, some teammates couldn't catch them and some got tipped away. Just got to deal with it.
Teammates are not calling him out about his defense, he shouldn't be throwing stones.
I found this quote by Wittman interesting: http://www.bulletsforever.com/2013/2...tman-john-wall
Is he talking about Vesely?"We were more caught up in ourselves as individuals than the team," he added later. "That's the bottom line. We got guys that haven't been in the rotation complaining. The older guys try to help them; they won't listen. That just tells me, 'I'm just worried about myself. I'm not worried about winning this game.'"

Dont we already know what this team looks like with Wall on the Bench?
We'll grind that axe, for a long time!
This comment by Beal certainly seemed to be about Wall
http://www.bulletsforever.com/2013/2...tman-john-wall"He's right. We just have to be on the same page. We just have to realize it's not about me, me me, it's about we. We didn't show that tonight," Beal said. "Our body language tells it all. We just have to be men about it and accept the fact that someone else is playing good. Every night is not going to be your night, but there's other ways you can impact the game. We just got to stick with it."
It's surprising that he would feel comfortable saying that. This is John's team, or so we think, and Beal's a rookie. That's not your typical comment and this part is the most alarming: "We just have to be men about it and accept the fact that someone else is playing good". Looks like a rookie just called out the "star".

Wall is allowed to be frustrated. Kid wears his heart on his sleeve. I like seeing that he's pissed and actually cares. As Wall goes, so does our team.
*Also, Destino...Beal is another guy who has shown his frustrations on the court through body language. There have been MANY instances where he has sulked/slouched after making a poor play or shot.

Wall is a major upgrade but he clearly needs to make some decisions about his career. It's put up or shut up time next year.
edit: I want to add that as soon as I was done with Beal's horrible shooting he sold his soul to the devil and started KILLING IT from three point land. Here's hoping Wall has a similar turn around that leaves me looking dumb (and happy for it).

Watching the highlights of Curry going off in MSG last night. Wow. What a performance!
What could have been . . . . the Miller and Foye trade fiasco will never stop hurting.
This would also explain why Buck constantly confuses players on the court.How did both home and road announcers miss this game ending call? Memphis Grizzlies play by play man Pete Pranica tells us on Twitter that Washington is only 1 of 2 NBA arenas to put the television broadcast booths at the back of the lower bowl. The distance from the court combined with Ariza's high arcing shot that moved the net combined to produce an event where both television crews mistook a game ending airball for a game winner.
