JOHN WALL: MEET THE NATIONS NEW CAPITAL

And the #1 pick of the NBA draft is…. John Wall of the Kentucky Wildcats. Hearing those words must be euphoric. Something finally went right for the Washington Wizards.  After a tumultuous season with all the Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Critterton debacle, this team, THIS CITY, finally is headed the right way.  First, the Nationals’ Stephen Strasburg surpasses all expectations and now Wall. It’s a good time to be living in the nation’s capital. Wall averaged 17 points, 4 rebounds and over 6 assists a game in college.  Sure it’s not the NBA, but this kid’s projected to be a star and I’m a believer.  I also like the rumors about Washington acquiring Kirk Hinrich from Chicago.  This kid’s a true point guard and has that “I hate to lose” attitude. Alongside a scorer like Wall, it would be a smooth transition from Derek Rose. For Chicago, it frees up cap space for the Lebron James sprint about to start in a week. If I’m Washington, I try to move Gilbert Arenas as soon as possible, maybe try to get a big man.  I wouldn’t want Arenas and his gangsta bullshit to touch or even be in the same room as Wall.  Remember when Portland gave away Zach Randolph after they drafted Greg Oden?  Hopefully, we’ll never mention Wall and Oden in the same sentence again.

  1. Wall and Strasburg do bring life to the DC area.. Strasburg’s name is on the lips of every one right now and looks like each one of his home starts will net 1 million dollars for the Nationals. Once baseball season is over then it will be Wall’s turn. I think it would be best to move Arenas to the off guard position and let Wall run the point. Arenas is better as a shooting guard anyway. DC has something to look forward to.
