QUOTES

On Wall...

  • Brad Stevens, Celtics Head Coach:
    “John is playing at a great level, his outside shot looks great, if he's not the fastest with the ball from end-to-end, he's one of the top two or three in the league...Between John and Beal and those guys they’ve got now healthy, they've got an outstanding perimeter.”
  • Larry Drew, Bucks Head Coach:
    “He’s a special guard. A guard that can get from one end of the floor to the other the way he can. And he has really improved his outside shot and he becomes almost impossible to guard. You play up on him, he goes by you. You play off of him, he knocks down shots. He’s a terrific player. As long as you’ve got a guy like that, that puts that type of pressure on the defense, offensively you’re going to be able to click.”
  • Mark Jackson, Warriors Head Coach:
    “John Wall is playing at an all-star level, obviously a guy that has different gears, an improved shooter, creates havoc on your defense by penetrating, pushing the ball, one man fast break...the thing about him is he's so fast, so deceptive, so strong, good size, big time finisher...I think he's been under the radar, people have been waiting for him to have a breakout type year rather than appreciating that he's been very, very solid for a while now and I think right now he's playing on a different level.”
  • Dwane Casey, Raptors Head Coach:
    “(In regards to going over or under on Wall)…pick your poison. Because if you go under, he’s knocking them down. And then they do a great job of lowering the screen, lowering the screen, lowering the screen … before you know it, they’re at the free throw line, and he clearly makes that shot. And if you go over, then you’re chasing him. Now you’re at his mercy as far as with his speed, strength, and quickness.”
  • LeBron James, Heat Forward:
    “Obviously he has great talent. He’s one of the fastest guys in our league. The only thing is health. And if he’s healthy, he’s going to give himself a great shot. He’s a really, really great point guard.”
  • Mike Wise, Washington Post:
    “Most of all, Wall has the one necessary ingredient now to be thought of as a bona fide all-star: He makes his teammates better. He’s not just out to get 30 every night; some nights 16 assists and 10 points will do.”
  • Michael Lee, Washington Post:
    “Wall’s belief in himself is reaping dividends for this franchise and for the point guard. The Wizards are 14-15, their best record at this point in six years, and in fifth place in a weakened Eastern Conference. And Wall is playing the best basketball of his career, averaging career highs with 20.2 points and 8.9 assists, which should help him accomplish his personal goal of making the all-star team for the first time — despite the fact his team gets little national television exposure.”
  • Tom Haberstroh, ESPN.com:
    His shiny new 3-point shot has vaulted his speedy game to a 20.9 player efficiency rating, which leads all East point guards. And then there's this: According to NBA.com, the Wizards are a preposterous 29.7 points per 100 possessions better with Wall on the floor than with him on the bench. All-Star starter and a franchise savior.
  • Curtis Harris, Hardwood Paroxysm:
    The trajectory was hinted at last season, but it could have been a blip on the radar. This season, the 23-year-old Wall has proven even better and that the end of last season was no fluke. He's on course for his first All-Star Game selection and also on track for the point guard holy grail of averaging 20 points and 10 assists in a season.

On the best point guard in the East...

  • Jeff Caplan, NBA.com:
    “This has got to be John Wall. He’s really become the man of late as the East player of the week now has three consecutive 30-point games.”
  • Lang Whitaker, NBA.com’s All Ball blog:
    “And to me the best all-around point guard in the East this season has been Wall. He’s averaging 18.6 ppg to go with 8.9 assists per, and he’s a true game-changer offensively — of the point guards I mentioned, to me Wall is the most dynamic of the bunch… But so far Wall has made that big contract extension he inked this summer look like a good deal for the Wizards.”
  • Sekou Smith, NBA.com:
    The Wizards’ John Wall and the Hawks’ Jeff Teague have both been pretty damn good this season. Wall and Teague’s numbers are nearly identical in all of the categories that translate to doing their job well. Wall has the edge in physical tools and ceiling, and he seems to be putting things together as a young leader on and off the court as well… if we’re talking about right now, as of this moment, I’m going with Wall in a photo finish over Teague.
