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.
