Hey, John Wall Did Things Today … Wanna See?

Updated: August 17, 2010

In case you weren’t aware, John Wall did things today … while in New York for NBA rookie orientation and a photo shoot, etc.

First, let’s watch a video of Wall being asked by some guy to choose between several different paired options at the photo shoot. [via @NBA] The most surprising: he chooses ‘to receive’ over ‘to give’ … maybe he doesn’t like to doling out assists that much after all. Here are some of his other choices:

  • Chocolate over vanilla.
  • The beach over the city.
  • Text (always) over phone calls.
  • Lil’ Wayne over Jay-Z.
  • Internet over T.V.
  • Appetizers over desserts.
  • Fact over fiction.
  • Defense over offense.
  • Ricky Bobby over Ron Burgundy.

I’ll give Wall the benefit of the doubt on taking Lil’ Wayne over Jay-Z because he’s young. But Ricky Bobby over Ron Burgundy? Blasphemous. Okay, let’s watch …

Second, Wall appeared on ESPN’s First Take this morning. Really nothing much to see during this awkward/uncomfortable interview … unless you want to see Skip Bayless awkwardly/uncomfortably do the John Wall dance at the end. Uhhh … yeeeaa.

Third, the WaPost’s Michael Lee shared a picture of Wall dribbling really fast.

How will John Wall manage being a new point guard around a bucnh of other high-usage players? He’ll probably score less than expected.
[Bullets Forever]

Kelly Dwyer ranks John Wall as the 17th best point guard in the NBA heading into the season … sandwiched between Darren Collison at 16 and Lou Williams at 18. {Shrugs shoulders.}
