John Wall tells Klay Thompson “I’ll knock your *** out,” gets ejected

John Wall had himself quite a weekend. On Saturday, Wall lead the Wizards to a stunning comeback victory over the Lakers, scoring 24 points and a ridiculous 16 assists. Last night, Wall’s confidence boiled over against the Warriors, resulting in him challenging (okay, cussing out) Klay Thompson and getting ejected from the game. The Washington Post’s Michael Lee wrote this of the scene:

After getting bumped to his backside and sliding on the hardwood, Wall quickly hopped up and circled Thompson’s direction, ignoring teammate Emeka Okafor’s attempts to get him to calm down. Wall had taken a hit to the noggin from Thompson while trying a layup on the previous possession. So as he approached Thompson, Wall shouted, “Go to the basket and I swear to God, I’ll knock your…out.”

Thompson leaned over and grabbed his shorts. Wall moved closer, towering over Thompson as he nodded and repeatedly shouted, “Go to the basket! Go to the basket!”

Since returning from a knee injury, Wall has been on a tear, averaging 20.7 points, 8.5 assists, and 4.5 rebounds over the last 10 games. Wall told the Washington Post that his confidence is as high as its been since he was 14 years old:

“My confidence is probably the highest since I was 14, playing AAU … I think I’m growing before my eyes and maturing in running the show.”

Ejection aside, it’s great to see Wall getting back to top form. Just how well is he playing? Watch this:

    1, That ending is hilarious! I don’t think that you’re a troll….I think (and hope) that our former players will do their trash talking with their play, if anything…..especially when they can play like that! The only thing that John Wall was ever lacking in his game was a consistent jump-shot. If he can keep hitting those and dishing he will be amazing.

    Poor Steve Nash. That play will probably cause him to retire.

    1 – It sounds like the announcers were saying that Wall took a hard foul on the other end the play before (assuming from Thompson) and got up and made 2 FTs. So, it likely started with that. I think Wall would’ve been fine just talking had he not bumped Thompson while basically standing over him.

    What a bunch of Divas basketball fans have become. In the 80s and mid 90s this would have been common. All the greats trash talked ESPECIALLY Bird, Jordan, and Magic. Now when we see someone do it its a inmature or thug behavior. (not saying anyone here said that. just what Ive seen online)

    Nash tripped over that guy’s leg…he didn’t fall because of the crossover

    This is silly. Wall had apparently already taken some hard hits from that guy, and the last one didn’t look pretty either (watch the overhead view, he threw a strong shoulder). I’d be pissed too. He jawed at him some and got a T. Not that big a deal.

    8. Watch more closely…Nash did NOT trip on that guy’s foot. He may have tried to avoid it but he didn’t trip.

    Saw replay of this several times on NBAtv last night. Wall & Thompson had already been going at it. Also what no one mentions is that while Wall was mouthing off, Thompson was jawing right back at him. Not sure shat he was saying because he was quieter, but chances are good he should have been t’d up as well.
    Love the way JW is playing right now.

    Geez, no wonder kids think its cool to be jerks and thugs these days. Props to Thompson for not playing into Wall’s immature taunts. Wall would look more intelligent if he let his game speak instead of his mouth…

    #16- Your the jerk. Basketball is about swagg these days, not punkin’ somebody and then grabbing your shorts and hoping a ref will t-up the other guy. Besides, it’s “a inmature”, not “immature.” Ask #7.

    Thompson is a little punk. He was in the middle of the Pacer/Warrior scrap a few weeks back in Indy. Wall’s got to stand up for himself or everyone will try to run over him. I am glad he took up for himself.
