John Wall doesn’t know Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi sat courtside for the Wizards preseason game against the Raptors last night, and you know who wasn’t impressed?

John Wall.

When asked how he felt about the “Livin’ On A Prayer” singer being in the building, Wall responded, “Who’s that?”

Teammate Jan Vesely overheard the conversation and asked Wall, “You don’t know him?”

“I’m a 90s baby,” Wall responded with a smile.

I bet he would’ve known if Cali Swag District sat courtside.

John Wall on Bon Jovi: “Who’s That? … Never Heard of Him.”

    Good for him, 80s music sucks. Bwt I was born in 83 and have plenty family members who are older than me who still play that crap.

    There were some good bands in the 80s. Bon Jovi was not one of them.

    Being born in the 90s isn’t enough of an excuse. Anybody alive today should’ve heard of the Beatles – shouldn’t matter when you’re born. Bon Jovi isn’t Beatles level, but he’s big enough to expect an adult to have heard of him.

    Richie Sanbora was the best singer in Bon Jovi. I’m with what #2 said. Jon Bon Jovi got carried in most of those songs.

    80s baby and I’m with #5. If I could erase all memory of Bon Jovi I would do it in a heart beat

    I would sell my soul if I never had to hear another Bon Jovi song.

    Here in Asia, everyone knows who Bon Jovi is (regardless of age); virtually no one knows who John Wall is.

    15 – You’re an idiot. John Wall knows who Cali Swag District is because they did “Teach Me How to Dougie,” an awful song but Wall has been known to Dougie.

    Think before you start calling things racist, or you’ll look like a dumbass. You’re probably just another U of L fan trolling a rival’s website. Get a life.

    And I was born in ’78 and I wish I’d never heard of Bon Jovi. Overrated garbage rock.
