John Wall 19 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (3/6/2013)

This is probably the most improbable game of John Wall’s career. He made seven field goals, but all of them were jumpers. Six of them were long two-pointers. His strength is using his quickness to get to the rack, not pulling up from 16 feet to take a jumper with his broken form, as evidenced by his 32% mark on jumpers this season.

Basketball players aren’t known for playing to their strengths. Unless they’re gifted baskets at the rack, many of them would rather shoot jumpers despite their inability to make them. Some offenders include Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza, John Wall, and Kevin Seraphin. The Wizards aren’t alone in this unfortunate boat; every team in the league has at least two or three guys who should never do anything but lay it up but still remain confident in their ability to drain J’s (this time will be different! I make this shot all the time in practice!).

To discover the one concept which most succinctly defines Wall’s career up to this point, you will have to read the first letter of each sentence in the above paragraph. If you can’t figure it out, I will send you a decoder ring for $40 plus shipping, just leave a comment.
