Kirk Hinrich’s First Pressure Free Throw
After a showing in front of the media on Monday afternoon, Kirk Hinrich was escorted from the press room to the main Verizon Center court, no critters were spotted en route by the way, to greet some Wizards basketball campers. Hinrich gave a brief hello, told the campers to have fun in whatever they do, and then the floor was opened up for questions.
On astute youngster asked Kirk if there were any similarities between Derrick Rose and John Wall. Hinrich said:
They’re similar because they’re both very athletic, and they’re point guards. Their athletic ability is hard to find in this league. I feel like John has the ability to be a superstar and I feel like Derrick is on his way there. I loved playing with Derrick and he is a good friend of mine, and I’m excited to get to know John and do the same.
Then came the pressure free-throw….
