ESPN.com ranked the top 25 NBA stars under the age of 25 and John Wall was nowhere to be found in the rankings. Guys like Thaddeus Young, Ed Davis, Larry Sanders, Nicolas Batum and Ryan Anderson made the list, but the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft did not.
Wall responded to being snubbed. He told Michael Lee, “You win, people love you. You don’t, they got somethin’ to say about you. You still gotta guard me.”
Though Wall was left out, three other former Wildcats were included:
13. Anthony Davis
19. DeMarcus Cousins
25. Eric Bledsoe
Bledsoe is about to get paid.
