Wall is without any doubt or question the #1 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft

Blake Griffin would be picked over John Wall, even if he could enter the draft which he can not.

Not exactly.

Mike, FL: Is John Wall the No. 1 pick in 2010 Draft. He was awesome at the Hoop Summit game.

Chad Ford: He was awesome and he'll compete with Ed Davis and a few other freshmen for that. However, there is some buzz that Wall believes he might be eligible for THIS year's draft. I've been doing some digging and will be filing a story later today. The short rub is this: Wall is a 5th year senior and depending on how you read the collective bargaining agreement, 5th year seniors are eligible for the draft as long as the turn 19 in the calander year (Wall does). The league is taking a wait and see approach. If he declares, they'll research and make a ruling. If he does declare and is ruled eligible (two big ifs) he's a Top 5 pick in this draft. Maybe Top 3."

Of course he actually has a case when challenging the NBA.

(b) A player shall be eligible for selection in the first NBA Draft with respect to which he has satisfied all applicable requirements of Section 1(b)(i) below and one of the requirements of Section 1(b)(ii) below:

(i) The player (A) is or will be at least 19 years of age during the calendar year in which the Draft is held, and (B) with respect to a player who is not an international player (defined below), at least one (1) NBA Season has elapsed since the player’s graduation from high school (or, if the player did not graduate from high school, since the graduation of the class with which the player would have graduated had he graduated from high school); and


If the rule says that he has to be at least one year after graduation why would he have a case.

Edit: Didnt know about the mother being sick. Small chance they make an exception. But the fact hes 19 may not change anything really.

+1.

Reportedly his mother is also in poor health, and this would save him the trouble of waiting a full year before being able to take care of his family financially.

Tracy McGrady,for those who don't know, was a 5th year HS senior when he entered the NBA Draft although it seemed he was going to decide between Kentucky & Florida State.

Wall is sick but damn.. I could only imagine how well I'd do if I was a 19 yr old going against all these small ass highschoolers...

I graduated at 17 yrs old and was still a puny lil kid. At 19 youre damn near a grown man. 5th yearsenior shmith year senior.

I think its because he is doing an uneccesary 5th year,and he turns 19 in the calendar year.

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