John Wall Responds to Fashion Critic

During the morning shoot-around before Game 6 in Washington, I asked John Wall if he got any feedback from the pink outfit he wore at the podium after Game 5 in Atlanta.

“Naw, I didn’t get no feedback,” said Wall.

There was, however, some negative chatter about his Game 4 bench attire.

I followed up by asking Wall about that fashion criticism. He said:

“I loved my outfit in Game 4. I don’t care what decision nobody makes, I am going to be me. I am going to wear what John Wall is comfortable with. The only somebody who said something because he won a fashion contest, once.”

Wall was alluding to Cleveland’s J.R. Smith, who made fun of his Game 4 outfit in a tweet. J.R. also won this year’s NBA fashion contest at All-Star weekend.

Wall began this season by zinging then-Cavs guard Dion Waiters, and now he goes in on his replacement, Smith. A Washington and Cleveland Eastern Conference Finals would sure be great for the online pixel makers.


Kyle Korver on Wall playing in Game 5 with a broken hand/wrist:

“I think we all knew that he would be out there again. That is just that kind of guy he is and the competitor that he is. I don’t know what bones he doesn’t need in his wrist. He didn’t look like he had any problems to me. He was dribbling with his left hand the whole night.”
