"The guy is super fast and he can hurt you many different ways. He gets other guys involved. He is throwing skip passes. He is throwing the pass to Gortat and then he can score also. He is a tough player."
- LeBron James, F, Cleveland Cavaliers
"You’ve got to get back in transition. You have to build a wall against Wall. You let him play in an open court, one-on-one, he’s too fast and too strong, and he’s gonna put your defense at bay and he did that all night long and our first game up in Cleveland. "
- Giannis Antetokounmpo, F, Milwaukee Bucks
"Once John Wall gets it, he’s gone."
- Caron Butler, F, Sacramento Kings
"They have a franchise guy like John Wall setting the tone, finding open guys. He’s one of the best guards in the game. He’s unbelievable."
- Kemba Walker, PG, Charlotte Hornets
"He was great. He made plays. He made all the right plays. He made shots. He had a great night."
- Chris Bosh, F, Miami Heat
“He's one of the best at getting his guys involved and getting himself involved and you kinda want to play in between.”
- George Karl, Head Coach, Sacramento Kings
"John Wall has a way of making people play well and play better. He’s a great leader and he’s becoming a great point guard."
- Gregg Popovich, Head Coach, San Antonio Spurs
"I thought he was brilliant. He got the ball to the right people at appropriate times, often. He was very consistent, he made big shots when he needed to, but the floor game was really excellent."
- Jason Kidd, Head Coach, Milwaukee Bucks
"When you look at Wall, that's what he does. That's why he's one of the best in this league.”
- Luke Walton, Interim Head Coach, Golden State Warriors
"There’s the backcourt in Washington, that’s pretty darn good as well.”
- J.B. Bickerstaff, Head Coach, Houston Rockets
"When you’re playing against two guys like that who are that talented (Wall & Beal), they’re gonna have their games where they get off.”
- Steve Aschburner, NBA.com
"Playing while partially hobbled or uncomfortable is one thing. But if an NBA point guard is the head of his team's attack, Wall has had aching and absent extremities around him all season. If he's lacking explosiveness for a quarter or a night, he can adjust his game internally, working around what ails him. For most of this season, Wall has had to work around what ails everyone else.”
- Fran Blinebury, NBA.com
"With point guard John Wall playing perhaps the best ball of his career in December -- 24.9 points, 10.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.2 steals per game, shooting 52.1 percent overall and 42.5 from behind the 3-point range -- it should be a time for the Wizards to be thriving."
- David Aldridge, NBA.com
"I would go with Wall in a photo finish over Lowry (who should start in the All-Star game). Wall's scoring just as much, shooting a higher percentage, and he's averaging nearly 10 assists a game."
