You know, the type that likes to rebound, block shots and stay close to the basket. He’s a contributor not a complainer and never worries about what he isn’t. Instead, he focuses on what he is, and how he can help his team. Read More »

Video: John Wall Stars With Liam Neeson In “Taken 3″

John Wall, Liam Neeson

Taken 3 will hit theaters right after the New Year, on Jan. 9. As part of the buildup to the third installment in the popular Liam Neeson vehicle, the titular character called up John Wall in a spoof of the phone call trope the Taken movies have all included. Neeson, a Knicks fan, warns Wall this year’s Knicks “will defeat you,” during their Christmas Day game. Wall’s rejoinder is priceless, especially taken within the context of this disastrous Knicks year. Read More »

Should Kobe Bryant score nine points in tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Los Angeles Lakers legend will pass Michael Jordan for third on the league’s all-time scoring list. Barring a turnaround of epic proportions at some point in the next two years, though, there’s still a place where MJ will always have bragging rights on Mamba: rings. In a newly released video by the NBA, watch an un-retired Jordan claim he was fouled by the 25 year-old Bryant – and use his advantage in championship count as justification. Read More »

Paul Pierce On John Wall: “He’s Our Leader”

John Wall, Paul Pierce

At this point his career, the most influential aspects of Paul Pierce’s game are intangible. The 37 year-old can still make big shots, canny passes, and capably check elite opposing wings for stretches, but his days as superstar are long gone. John Wall is the Washington Wizards’ franchise player, and Pierce even insists that the 24 year-old is something more, too: his team’s leader. Read More »

Video: Evan Turner’s Game-Tying Three-Pointer Sends Celtics & Wizards To OT

Evan Turner

What a crazy game in Washington last night. We had a full-court shot that didn’t count, two overtimes, and an emotional post-game interview by John Wall who dedicated the hard-fought victory to the hard-fought battle six-year-old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson lost against cancer (we’re still getting choked up about that). Adding to the madcap night was Evan Turner‘s game-tying three-pointer with under a second left in regulation to force the first overtime. Read More »
