Washington Wizards’ point guard John Wall survived a rebuilding process in the nation’s capital and the team rewarded him by signing him a huge deal in the offseason.
So far, it has paid off. Wall was named to the All-Star team and led the Wizards into the postseason, where they currently have a 2-0 lead on the Chicago Bulls.
After showing off his handles and ability to finish at the rim earlier in Friday night’s game3, Wall decided to show of his athletic ability and remind everybody why he won the 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
Bulls’ swingman Jimmy Butler tried to put the ball on the floor, but fell to the ground and lost the ball with Trevor Ariza guarding him. The ball went straight to Wall. He sprinted down the court, elevated and finished with a huge dunk that sent the D.C. crowd at the Verizon Center into a frenzy.
