Police say NBA star John Wall was kicked off a flight in Las Vegas on Tuesday after a disturbance was reported. Las Vegas police said Friday that the Washington Wizards’ All-Star point guard was with a group of people on an American Airlines flight around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Police say one of the people with Wall got into a verbal fight with another passenger who was unrelated to the group.
We’re told someone from the flight crew called the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for help — and cops boarded the plane to deal with the situation. The alleged victim told cops he did not want to press charges — but the pilot of the plane decided he did NOT want Wall and his crew to remain on the flight … so they were escorted off. We’re told Wall and his party left without further incident. Calls to Wall’s rep have not been returned. John had posted a photo of his crew on the way to Vegas on May 22nd … though it’s unclear if the same guys were involved in the incident on the flight home.

NBA superstar John Wall was kicked off an American Airlines flight in Las Vegas this week … after someone in his crew allegedly threatened another passenger … TMZ Sports has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … the Washington Wizards star had boarded a flight headed to D.C. on May 26th — but before the plane took off, his crew got into a verbal argument with someone else on the plane and a threat was allegedly made from someone in Wall’s group.
The All-Star guard turned shy when pressed to evaluate his own game. “God blessed me with the ability and talents to be able to create for a lot of my teammates. I think me just building the trust even when I wasn’t a great offensive player, scoring and taking bad shots at times,” he said. “I feel like I can shoot a lot more, but my job is to get everybody else involved and make sure those guys stay in a rhythm … My main goal to is to bring a championship here. That’s something that hasn’t been done in a long, long time.”

Just like he wasn’t on the list for Team USA, for all of the NBA All-Star games he missed out on. How despite being the top pick in the draft, he’s never been the face of the league. And he wasn’t on the list to be the go-to guy for the press until he made himself that person. It’s the thing he’s made a theme of his professional career: He, according to Wall and Wizards faithful, was snubbed.
A basket by Paul Millsap and the two by Carroll nearly clinched the game. Paul Pierce appeared to make a game-tying 3-point at the buzzer. However, after a review, video showed that he did not get the shot off in time. “When they ran the play, I saw John Wall get the ball,” Carroll said. “I was like, ‘Man, should I foul him or should I just contest the 3?’ I know these whole NBA playoffs have been buzzer-beaters. I didn’t want the game to end on a buzzer beater, and I didn’t want Coach mad at me. “John Wall handed it off, and I chased him. By the time I turned around I saw Paul Pierce shooting the ball, and I was about to cry. I said, ‘Not again.’ It went through, but the basketball gods were on our side. They let us get through this one.”
