Shook Ankles: John Wall Is Really Fast
Not many players headed into this season with higher expectations than John Wall. Thanks to the once-in-a-generation leap we saw from Derrick Rose, all young point guards coached by John Calipari must now make the All-Star team, lead their franchise to the playoffs, cure cancer, AND be named an All-NBA super human in his first three years or be declared a desperate failure. With the exact same “I” before “team” players that surrounded him last year still hanging around, Wall’s started his second season slower than we imagined possible. But don’t read into it. He’s the game’s fastest player doing the best he can with what he’s got. Players this good don’t stay down for long.
