John Wall and the Wizards started out the season in underwhelming fashion. John Wall couldn’t get his shot to fall, and they looked bad.
Now, they are 4-1 in their last 5, and John Wall has been playing like an all-start point guard. He bested the Lakers with 31 points and 9 assists, and he was feeling pretty confident after the game:

Let me start by saying this: John Wall is not the best point guard in the NBA. What do you want him to say, though? These guys are extremely competitive, and they a should think that they are better than everyone else.
I like Wall’s attitude, but Chris Paul is the best point guard in the NBA, and is probably going to win the MVP this season. You could even argue that Russell Westbrook is better than Wall. I like his confidence and attitude, and it well better suit the Wizards as his career goes on. Wall has been playing well though, and the Wizards look like a playoff team in the midst of a bad Eastern Conference.
