John Wall's 360-degree layup
John Wall's absurd layup from Sunday's Fan Fest was justifiably the lede of Michael Lee's next day report.
John Wall split two defenders near the foul line with cat-quick speed, then evaded two more inside with a beautiful, pirouette spin move and banked in a layup. Then he stomped up the floor and flexed as an astonished crowd cheered at George Mason's Patriot Center.
As with all beautiful things in the world these days, the Internet produced video. Wizards Extreme were the kindly benefactors in this case, and we should all revel in their work. Also, via Craig Stouffer of the Examiner, Flip Saunders took credit for teaching Wall that move.
"I told him that's why I brought him up there to Minnesota those three days," Saunders said, referring to Wall's summer visit to the coach's offseason home. "So he picked up that move finally."
Yeah. About time.
