John Wall flexing at Summer League
If you've been watching the Wizards play in the NBA Summer League, you've likely noticed that John Wall is fairly demonstrative. His shouts are easily heard on the TV broadcast. He raises his arms or kicks his legs after assists. He shimmies and dances up-court.
And at least twice already, he has displayed the John Wall flex made famous in his dance. The latest came in the third quarter Tuesday night, after an and-one on the fast break.
"Showing some muscle there," observed Phil Chenier from the Comcast SportsNet studios.
"Wall made a difficult, hanging layup and was fouled before he lifted his arms to flex his muscles," Michael Lee wrote. "With the rout worsening with Wall on the floor, [Clipper Darrell] eventually said, 'Hey, John. You stop that.' "
A Vegas writer has already dinged Wall for his flexing, noting that one flex came after he drove by a guard from North Dakota State, and that "he had trouble defending guys in the Summit League. Wall is going to have to do it against better competition before he can start posing."
Which is true, but it's been a long time since Wizards fans have had something to celebrate, and meaningless summer games more than qualify. I haven't heard any complaints.Tuesday's flex, I should note, was of the backwards-walking variety, and was held for several strides. That was a long flex.
(Here, by the way, is a new Wall t-shirt concept: We Are Wall Witnesses.)
