John Wall is pretty good at this basketball thing

wallomg.0_standard_709.0

In case you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, John Wall is having quite the coming out party in the world’s premier basketball league. Since returning from a knee injury which sidelined him for 33 games, Wall is averaging 18 points, 7.6 assists, and 4 rebounds per game. While these numbers are undoubtedly impressive, it’s his play in the past two weeks which is garnering massive attention. In the Wizards’ seven most recent games, Wall is averaging 28.8 points, 7.3 assists, and 6.1 rebounds per game. This includes last night’s 104-85 victory over Indiana, where the former Wildcat dropped 37 points on 16-25 (64%) shooting from the field.

Much has been made recently about Wall receiving max money on his next contract, and judging from his recent play, he looks to deserve every penny coming his way.  If you’re interested in watching Wall perform, the Wizards take on Boston today at 6 pm on CSNN.

    Speaking of Wall. I have a question. s fans used to always make fun of tards fans and the idea of Siva > Wall. From a pure talent standpoint, it is obvious who the better player is. So my question is, from just a college point of view, which player has been more valuable? Wall had one great year but did not get the results in the end. Siva has been a 3 starter with 2 final 4’s and a possible title. So, who has meant more to their program? That is the real question.

    I still go with wall. Event though he stayed for one year, him, cousins, and the rest set the framework for what kentucky basketball will be for many years to come. Wall made kentucky the place for elite young talent to play basketball.

    You never hear kids say, ” I want to play basketball where Siva played”

    @2 don’t discount the fact that wall continued the precedent of recruiting dominance, #1 draft picks and absurd recruiting and talent that cal brought to UK.

    Without wall maybe we don’t get Brandon knight or Teague who gave us a final four and championship respectively; the first class with wall and cousins help set something special in motion.

    So the question of who meant more to their team includes many angles and I would take wall and the line of talent succeeding it over a four year Peyton Siva all day.

    John Wall helped bring Kentucky back as a destination for top talent. Without that class, Kentucky doesn’t land all of the kids who helped win #8 and will eventually get #9. He continues to rep UK hard (check out his website). I don’t mean this to sound disrespectful, but in ten years kids will be wearing John Wall jerseys and no one will remember Siva except Cards fans. So, who has meant more to their program? Easy. John Wall has done a lot more for UK than Siva can ever do for UofL.

    Still angers me that that 2010 team didn’t even make it to the Final Four.

    Not saying he’s LeBron… but damn, those are LeBron numbers.

    7…yeah we shot 32 3’s out of an impotent half court offense instead of running or utilizing our front line with Big Cuz, PPat, Perry, Orton, Jorts…

    Damn that John Wall guy driving in against three defenders looks a lot like Archie Goodwin. Except for the fact that the ball made it up to the basket,went in the basket and Wall didn’t end up on the floor wondering where the foul call was.

    Supposedly, Lil Pitino has been breaking down Michigan film for the last 6 days.

    Open that video in YouTube and you’ll see that it’s in response to another video… where John Wall blocks a dunk attempt by Roy Hibbert. The dunk is preceded AND FOLLOWED by Tyler Hansbrough doing what he does best: failing and flailing! It’s my new favorite video.

    14) His question is in regard to college. Has nothing to do with how much money one makes. Last time I checked, uk and uofl are college teams.

    Point taken, my argument is that J.Wall > Siva every year (if Wall had stayed all four). We recruit first round picks, which makes it an unfair comparison. Also, my opinion “money matters” if Siva were good enough he would do the same as Wall.

    It’s been nice to see Wall healthy the last couple months, and finally doing what all UK fans knew he could do. Keep shutting those critics and naysayers up, J-Wall.

    Wall likes to win! I dunno if the Wizards have enough money to keep him there when some teams with more weapons offer him similar amounts! But if they decide to throw the bank at him to lock him in and team build around him then kudos to Wizards managment!
