John Wall’s in China, still working on his Mandarin

33767768e19711e2a9c822000a1d2020_7

John Wall is in China this week with Team Adidas to promote their new shoes, and took some time out to film a video with Dwight Howard and Yi Jianlian. Check it out below to see Wall and Howard attempt to speak Mandarin and discuss their trip. Interesting note: this is the first time that John Wall’s been out of the country. I’m sure it won’t be his last.

Wall does okay, but you have to give Howard an A+ for enthusiasm.

    Thanks Tyler for sharing. Mandarin is my native language and they both did pretty well πŸ™‚

    I watched one more time, John wanted to be Jackie Chan and Dwight is so funny, he learned a lot and even pronounced “fart” very accurately πŸ™‚

    The Shangri-La in Bejing is very nice, I like the one in Shanghai the best though. Mandarin is hard. Everything is about the way you say it, I try to order a coke zero when I am there and the waitress asks in English why are you going to grab me.

    Who the hell are those two other dudes in the picture with Wall there? The one in the middle unnerves me, looks like a really creepy guy
