I think John Wall would be a good mentor for Arenas.

The Wizards SOLD 400 season tickets as soon as they secured the #1 pick in the draft.....that right there tells me they're gonna draft JOHN WALL! I just don't see where Evan Turner would have 400 ppl running out to purchase season tickets.

So get used to seeing/hearing “THE GREAT WALL OF CHINATOWN”!!!!!!

Just Saying

Dageez from Waldorf,Md

How many snot-nosed kids think they will upset Michael, Kobe, etc. before they step onto the court? It's a different world out there when you're now average speed, average ball handler, etc. Let's play some before talking. Can you spell Adam Morrison?

Just finishing Halberstam's book on Jordan, Playing for Keeps, the comparisons to Wall are compelling. Both reared in N.C. Both were 6'4" entering college. (Mike grew to 6'6" and filled out to 218, 3 percent body fat. J.W. unknown, but he might not be finished growing.) Both sort of off the radar early on in their H.S. careers. Both freakishly athletic. Both are clearly cognizant of their images at an early age (maturity). Both had to tone down their games in college (Jordan b/c of Dean Smith's system, Wall b/c of Cal's system and his penchant to get his teammates involved) Both will do what it takes to win. (check out Wall's performance at MSG and his off. rebound off a missed free throw in the SEC Tourney late in the game) he has that 'no way are we losing this game' gene that cannot be taught. Now is he Mike, hells naw! Cause if he was UK would have found a way to get past West Ginny. All I'm saying is that this dude is special and you build the team around him. He will be better than Rose, Rondo, Paul, Nelson and D. Williams...

Stay away from Vince, 'Melo, Lebron or any other FA that's gonna take the ball out of his hands. (he's stuck with Gil, unless EG does some more magic) All he needs is someone to be his enforcer aka D. Blair, who they could've had... never mind, a mid-range jump shooter (get Boozer and you have both), a shot blocker (they may have that in McGee) and a 3 point specialist. I know that is a lot to ask for, and you won't find them all this season or next. But by 2012-13, John Wall will have the 'Zards prime to take over the East, if not the whole NBA.
