John Wall After His NBA All-Star Game Debut (Video)

Updated: February 17, 2014



Not a bad NBA All-Star debut by Johnathan Hildred Wall at all. With 12 points in 15 minutes off the bench (5-7 FGs, 0-1 3Ps, 2-2 FTs) to go with five rebounds, four assists, two steals (and three turnovers), Wall became the first Wizard to score in double-figures in an All-Star game since Michael Jordan scored 20 points on 27 shots in the 2003 affair.

Since 1990, Wall has scored the second most All-Star points by a Wizard/Bullet after Jordan. Those who follow: Michael Adams (nine points in 1992), Bernard King (eight points in 1991), Michael Jordan (eight points in 2002), and Gilbert Arenas (eight points in 2007). Worth noting: This 2014 All-Star game broke the combined scoring record with 318 total points (the previous record was 303 points set in 1987). Wall’s East squad also set the record for most points by one team with 163.

Below is video, albeit video without great lighting, of Wall speaking with the media after his first ever All-Star game.
