John Wall is a beast this year — there’s really no way around it. He’s not been putting up LeBron James type number, but he’s been dangerously efficient and that’s really all the Wizards have need him to be since he was drafted first overall a few years ago.
Now that he’s balling hard and doing so in a smart manner, the Wizards are picking up wins and laying down a stable foundation for a bright future. It also doesn’t hurt that Wall is becoming a slam dunk maestro, having won the Slam Dunk contest with the East team this year.
He carried those skills into Tuesday night’s game against the Magic when he threw down this nasty jam after dancing around the Orlando defense.
It’s finally not completely embarrassing to be a Wizards fan anymore.
