It might not be the one they record in the history books or the one that CBS will talk about during the tournament, but John Wall captured Yahoo’s National Player of the Year award today, beating out Evan “The Villian” Turner. Wall’s trip to the 1st Team All-American photo shoot won’t be like the awkward first day of summer camp when you don’t know anyone and you want to shower in your underwear, though, as he’s joined by a familiar face. DeMarcus Cousins was also named to the first team and Patrick Patterson was picked as an honorable mention.
Also, since we love you so much, here’s an added bonus feature. Since my basketball nerdery knows no bounds, I came across this video of BYU’s Jimmer Fredette, an honorable mention on King’s list, who gives the most honest answer ever at the 3:45 mark. I bet his wives are furious.
