    It can be spun that his normal high school class graduated the year before, making him eligible.

    Both went to Christian Academies that allow a 5th year of HS for whatever reason.

    Wow he looks awesome in those highlights. His game looks a lot like Jamal Crawford.

    That forbid him from playing in the McDonalds All American Game.

    Ahh i see. Makes sense. But I still think the chances that the NBA making an exception are slim. The fact that is was his choice to do this 5th year may hurt his chances. Since last year was his "real senior" year did he play in the high school ASG'S?

    Even if he enters, he won't be drafted over B.G. Do you have to make a dumb thread every year around this time?

    He looks kinda like him also except Wall has more of a PG mentality.

    The one thing about this case is that Wall won't set a floodgate of HS players doing this simply because you would have to go to a Christian Academy after having failed previously.

    All they showed was him traveling, dunking and being an arrogant punk. He should fit right in.

    Wall would have graduated last year if he were at a normal public/private HS.

    Jamaal Crawford did the same thing before he went to Michigan.

    Eat ****.

    Didn't you learn from the 2008 NBA Draft you dip**** that 9/10 times a NBA GM will draft an elite PG prospect over an elite PF prospect.

    Blake Griffin=6'8 PF w/great athleticism, and developing range.
    John Wall=6'3 PG w/great athleticism,blazing speed,& great court vision.

    Well technically if he is a grade 13 then he is one year removed from graduating highschool no? Because then IMO he should be able to enter.

    I might be wrong but didn't he enter the 1999 NBA Draft only to pull out at the last minute?
