John Wall was made available to the media before practice today so he could address the comments after last game (courtesty of the Kernel):
Just so this doesnt get buried in the last posting, I will repost it here. Hopefully the big guy will see it and appreciate it unlike some of the posters.
With a swag as pure as Peter Parker,
and a game that fits his name.
Your the type of person and a player,
to bring Lexington the fame.
Backing down the opponent in the block,
is where your needed most.
we can see you juke your mans jock,
when we are going coast to coast.
We know the miles are many,
from your family you are apart.
Understand one thing thats plenty,
is the love in a UK fans heart.
For a team with so much talent,
and a coach not far from great.
We’ll need you when we reach our peak,
Thats right, it’s title eight.
So you chose to rep our state,
may God be with you here.
But to see you maximize your skillz,
Calipari’s blue you wear.
soo whats realllly going on????
5 – you are so right. It sounds like Wall is done after this year.
6- it wasn’t that bad…
I think we all have to remember that John Wall is a 19-year old kid. We see this superstar on the court and hold him to standards fitting to players well beyond his years. The kid wants to be great. You can tell he’s a perfectionist. When he has off games (I won’t say bad games because even his slightly less than perfect games are astounding), he’s going to have to learn like any other 19-year old kid to channel the frustration to get better, rather than just getting frustrated. He’s going to be fine. I love the kid!
Can someone write down what was said….I’m getting nothing.
Just so this doesnt get buried in the last posting, I will repost it here.
Poems are silly. I mean really.
John, you sound like you need cheering up. How’s this? This time next year you’ll be a millionaire. Hell, if somebody told me that when I was 18, lead weights couldn’t bring me down.
not shocking that he would leave after one year. We all knew that going into this season.
Boogie probably finds it creepy that grown men write him terrible poems–it made me uncomfortable. It works on 6th grade girls-not future NBA lottery picks. Please try something else (like never posting any comments here or elsewhere). Thx-Management
I am sure Boogie is mature enough, and secure enough in his manhood to appreciate the poem for what it is. Through my experiences I have always found it is the insecure who attack others.
It seems like the national media is getting to be as bad as some Kentucky fans at blowing things out of proportion!
I had no idea Martin Prince was a UK fan
poem guy please stop.
No big deal on the poem, have fun with it. Maybe we should see if Carlos Toomer has written a Cousins poem?
Poems can be cool…but not when guys write them for other guys…then it becomes just weird.
Well posted, LawDog!
That Wall interview was very insightful- blank space always provides as clear view of what is going on.
No homo? Dayum.
That poem doesn’t even really make sense…..terrible
16 haha. nothing to do with insecurity my man…take a lesson from Dominos pizza and realize that your stuff sucks and try to come up with something better
I once wrote a poem about Dr. Pepper and Pork Rinds.
3 try actually reading your “poem” outloud, then come back and tell us that it’s good.
I’m sure Boogie thinks poems are for jag offs.
Trying to justify attacking others is just another form of insecurity.
One thing is for sure: My team will be playing with “house money” on Tuesday night. We’ve really been working on our “gap defense” to try to keep it within 11 points.
No tip for you Muhammed!!!!
I get the feeling that Wall is going to leave after this year too. 🙁
Seriously, what the Hell has happened to the Media? They’ve all turned into a bunch of fruit loops. I blame it on the 24 hour News Cycle, and “Breaking News” every time anything happens. There ain’t a handful of credible analysts left in sports. Maybe Hubert Davis, Bilas maybe, everyone else seems to be agenda driven or just stupid.
#32-that poem is insecure enough. Your prose is way off-especially when you make violent backdoor cuts.
I once wrote a poem about Clyde on a bathroom stall wall.
Here is a haiku poem:
Rick likes Syphers’s panties
Her ankles skyward at Porcinis
9. In a post a few threads ago I reffered to john wall as a 19 year old kid aswell when I was bitching about alan cutler digging 4 something juicy. However I apologize because anyone willing to admit they need to mature and grow, with a camera in there face, is a man, not a boy. So I apologize. I still hate alan cutlers douche ass though. And since everyone puts the blame of cutlers douchness on espn, I think I might stick him with a sharp blue shank
Or maybe a Boogie bow!
let the poem guy do what he wants, no need to attack him for being creative!
If Pitino were smart, he could have spent $7000 on this and would not have to deal with all of the drama. Plus, she looks JUST LIKE KAREN SYPHER. HA
I like this for a few reasons:
#1 Cal is preparing him for taking responsibility for his words. Discretion is the better part of valor. He will learn that impish dolts like Lexington sportswriters, and 10 gallon head Forde will run with the slightest inclination of a baton named controversy.
#2 It quickly quells the flames of the fan base that for some odd and twisted reason love to blow things out of proportion.
This is a kid that DOMINATED the competition at the high school level, and had a complete green light from opening to closing buzzer. He has team mated now that equal his talent, and are actually better. He is learning to be a team mate while still carrying the huge burden of expectations of a national audience, and the most micro-managing fans walking the planet.
God Bless him. He has class, integorty, and an internal drive that I admire whole heartedly.
28. Dominos new pizza is even worse
..sorry for the typos
Your poem is gay
Boogie doesn’t care at all
So quit posting it
Its not “Breaking News” that John was gonna leave after this year….where you guys been.
Since boogie reads this, he might just comment. So I am going to try and figure out which one of you fakers is boogie in disguise….I bet its “An ode to boogie.”
Boogie Boogie Boogie can’t you see
Sometimes your words just hypnotize me
And I just love your flashy ways
Guess that’s why they broke, and you’re so paid (uh)
I put hoes in NY onto DKNY (uh-huh)
Miami, D.C. prefer Versace (that’s right)
All Philly hoes, dough and Moschino (c’mon)
Every cutie wit a booty bought a Coogi (haaaaah!)
Wall will be fine.
As for the poem. Not sure WTF does it justice.
Rick is NIT
Overpaid washed up cheater
Good interview with Wall. Granted, our work lives are completely different than basketball but most of us have been in a situation where our boss tells us something we don’t want to hear and it gets us down before we realize it’s for our own good. Same situation with Wall, the truly great thing is that at 19, he realizes that the comments were for his own good and that he’d never get better without the truth. By the way, looking forward to the game tomorrow, I think Ole Miss is good enough to warrant more hype than what I’m hearing about this game
Roses are red,
violets are blue,
Your poem is gay,
And so are you.
Dude can write all of the poems he wants, but it is kinda weird that he spent all of that time on a poem to another guy. I don’t think Boogie is into the whole bromance thing.
Greg Oden self pic
Mule at county fair mistake
20 looking 50
That is great stuff Jorts!
37 = CLASSIC !! lol
Leave gay poem guy alone. It takes big balls to manstalk a guy boogies size… 55.classic
I meant 53
Good interview with Wall. He is beyond his years.
42 Does this mean BTI can get laid now?
boogie is the man and he has the support of the vast majority of BBN.
3 – fail.
We’re the 3 best friends that anybody could have, we’re the 3 best friends that anybody could have, we’re the 3 best friends that anybody could have, we’re the 3 best friends that anybody could have…
#3 is a pseudonym for bti.
Mark Coury never played for a ranked UK team… but plays for a ranked CORNELL!
Congrats to Cornell though in all seriousness….. but what irony!
Really impressive Mr. Wall.
I need trashy, out of context quotes to keep my job!
Great response by John. Learn and move on, all the time smiling and having a good time. We love John Wall! (And Boogie too!)
#67 Coury doesn’t start at Cornell but he started at UK. There’s something wrong with that!
You know its bad when the only person defending your gay little poem was the lone chick registered on this site.
73rd.This will only serve to draw this team closer together and give John Wall more motivation to break out of this mortal slump.This has as good as a chance of messing the team up as Matt Jones does of scoring with that girl in the orange from that sorority basement.I still have her top button by the way.lol.
