Default John Wall

So I've seen quite a few people lately posting about this kid. I knew nothing about him, and was wondering why the hell people thought so highly of him...

I just checked him out on youtube and HOLY SH*T!

I take back what I thought, he's just nasty.

He looks amazing from the three or so vids I've seen of him, maybe best prospect since LBJ. What college is he going to?

If you compare Wall to Rose in highschool, Wall is better, also comparing them in the same tournys. Rose is NBA proven though, we can't say that about Wall, only a couple years of anticipation left for wall..

Thing I noticed, watch he dunks with his left mostly, blocks with his right. Lays the ball in equally well with both hands. Until he took a jumper I couldn't figure if he was a left or right hander.

I'm sure he shoots with right hand, that's what I'm most confused if he was a left or right hander. I find it cool at the same time.

The fact that he can score easily with both hands among other things, is a testimony of a Very high basketball IQ. I hope memphis or Clippers don't draft him.

You gathered this guy was great because of a youtube highlight reel against highschool talent?

Hmmm... essentially every play in the video was in transition or the open court. Half court? shooting range? man-man defense? traditional court vision off of pick & roll?

None of that was shown in the video. I'll hold judgement till I see what he does against top ranked teams in the SEC & NCAA.
