It has to be John Wall

sounds like a great kid. he really sounds grounded and genuine. He's a super athlete and seems like he doesn't have his head in the clouds. I also like that he was able to channel his emotions, because of what his mother talked to him about.She could've coddled him because he didn't have a daddy (like so many single mothers do) but i think that would have led him down the road of entitlement and narcissism (the one so many of my momma's boy friends have traveled).Instead at 14 she "put the ball in his court" and let him choose to reshape his life/redirect his feelings. he should have a feeling of accomplishment, having come this far. However i think he'll still grind extra hard because he can see the hard work that was put in to get to where he's gotten. He said she worked 3 jobs for him and his sister, so the foundation has been set so far as work ethic goes. I like what i'm hearing

Gil is damaged goods in every possible way...multiple knee surgeries, mental instability, convicted felon...and yet some on here want him to be John Wall's running mate. Because the last three years were not painful enough for you? Maybe Gil would be the perfect Robin to Wall's Batman...did you have a head injury? I don’t want Gil to be on the same court with Wall unless he is wearing a different uniform and watching Wall slice by him play after play after play…..

Gil would be completely freaked out after watching Wall literally run circles around him in practice...I do not trust Gil to be on the same court with Wall.

Get rid of Arenas for any expiring deal we can be out of in a year or two tops...don't care for who...goal here is not to acquire critical piece but remove virus from team. Gil hasn't even talked to Ernie and you just know he has just been stewing the whole time...

By getting rid of Gil and handing the keys to John Wall we can then approach Livingston with an attractive offer. Nice 3-4 year deal as backup to Wall, so he does not have to kill his knee doing 40 min but has an NBA career with a team on the rise. Would then take Vasquez in late 2nd round, point guard position then nailed up for the next 6-8 years.

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.

Just Saying

What is it about high school b-ball in NC? MJ gets cut and Wall gets cut. By their senior year, they're the top prospects in the country. There's either a ton of talent in that state or the coaches are really stupid.
