John Wall on Michael Carter-Williams’ debut: ‘He had one good game’


The Philadelphia 76ers and rookie Michael Carter-Williams are set to take on John Wall and the Washington Wizards tonight, the same Wall who apparently was less than impressed with Carter-Williams’ amazing NBA debut.

The 11th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Carter-Williams put on a show in his pro debut, putting up 22 points, 12 assists and 9 rebounds in 36 minutes. That’s a great line for an NBA superstar, let alone a rookie in his first ever NBA game – especially on the tanking Sixers considering their extremely sub-par roster.

Great contest or not, the Wizards’ John Wall was less than impressed, suggesting it was one good game:

Wizards PG John Wall’s impressions of @MCW1: “I don’t really know. I mean, he had one good game. I mean the first game the opening night ..

Haters gonna hate?

Wall continued on, giving a bit of praise before suggesting that he too ‘had some good games’ during his rookie year.

Should be a fun matchup between the two young talents tonight.

    Wall still has no consistent outside shot

    Wall started out 6-6 in the 1st quarter and was taunting and talking smack right in Carter-Williams’ face. He was pounding his chest like he was achieving something. Then he scored about 4 points in the 2nd half while MCW was the best player in the 4th quarter and owned the Wizards and Wall. John Wall needs to grow up. I wonder if he was doing the “Dougie” in the locker room after the game. MCW is already a better all-around point guard than Wall and he’s played 3 games.
