The Washington Wizards point guard fooled Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes with a wicked spinning layup.
Last night, John Wall provided the public with more evidence that he is actually a wizard.
After a wonderful opening to their season, the Washington Wizards have cooled off considerably. However, within the past two weeks the team was cruising to a five-game winning streak. Last night they took on the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center hoping to recreate some of their success.
Near the end of the third quarter, the Wizards trailed the Clippers, 81-69, when John Wall decided he would bend spacetime.
Matt Barnes looks like Scott Bakula just Quantum-Leaped into his body mid-game.

Either that, or the gypsy curse that controls Barnes movements just broke while Wall was midflight. As Wall split from his anti-particles, Barnes feet stayed glued to the floor trying to reboot.
Despite the slick move, the Clippers were still able to win 113-99 and improve their record in a hyper competitive Western Conference. This was largely on the back of a 52 percent field goal percentage, a 23-rebound game from DeAndre Jordan and a poor job of execution from the Wizards.
Throughout this season, John Wall has established the 360-spin layup as his signature scoring move. Wall unwrapped this present on Christmas against the New York Knicks.
Wall also pulled off the same move against the Celtics that left Kris Humpries and Jared Sullinger on their butts.
This differs greatly from the Swaggy spin.
