John Wall: I’m seen as No. 1 pick who hasn’t done nothing


Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is still playing with a chip on his shoulder. He says he is viewed as a No. 1 draft pick who hasn’t proven his worth in the NBA and is out to correct that.

From Chris Miller of CSN Washington:

I think they still still see me as a skinny kid from Kentucky that got drafted No. 1, that hasn’t done nothing or proven nothing in this league. I think just making this first All-Star Game still doesn’t get me a nod.

I think I respect the coaches and those guys that give me the the credit for seeing I worked on my game and I’m getting better.

But until I make it to the playoffs and win a series and keep improving, I haven’t done nothing in this league.

Wall is still young and has a long ways to go, playing for an organization like the Washington Wizards isn’t helping either.
