Basketball Insiders: This summer, you guys lost Paul Pierce, but you added some quality veterans in Jared Dudley, Gary Neal and Alan Anderson among others. Personally, I liked the moves since those guys can be key contributors and they will improve your depth. What did you think of the team’s offseason? John Wall: “It was great. It was tough losing Paul [Pierce], Rasual [Butler] and those guys because they helped us a lot, but I like the additions. Alan [Anderson] can help us. Gary [Neal] has been around a team that’s been to the Finals. A guy like Jared Dudley knows what it takes to win and he’s someone who knows his role. These are all veteran guys who know their role and who can come in and just help us win games. Those kind of guys are key.”
John Wall: “I want to be in the MVP conversation and give myself a shot at being the MVP. That means I need to play well, help my teammates play well, get those guys shots and lead my team to wins. I definitely want to be an All-Star starter again. I want to be All-NBA First Team. I want to be on the All-Defensive First Team; I was All-Defensive Second Team last year. I think I was snubbed from the All-NBA Third Team last year, but I just use that as motivation for this year to try to get better. Another individual goal is definitely leading the league in assists this year. There are a lot of things I want to do, but those are some of the main ones.”

John Wall: “Among point guards, I feel like I’m right there. I feel like I’m a top three point guard in this league. And overall, I feel like I’m right there in the top 10 players. I think this is my year to just get over the hump and prove it. I’m getting better every year and improving. There are a lot of great players and great point guards in this league, but I just feel like I have the same tools and abilities as them. I just need to believe in myself and produce on the court because all of the talking doesn’t mean nothing if you can’t back it up.”
Last Friday, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall surprised a center for homeless children in the Southeast D.C. not only with an appearance but with a $400,000 donation. The recipient, Bright Beginnings, Inc., announced the contribution on its Facebook page. On Tuesday, after completing the Wizards’ first practice of the season at Towson University’s SECU Arena, Wall was asked what motivated him to give the substantial gift. “It was just an opportunity. I’ve been knowing about Bright Beginnings since my second or third year in the league and I’ve just been talking to them and doing certain things,” Wall said. “I think it’s just devastating. You already see homeless people out on the streets, that’s tough to see, but you always wonder how they got there, what happened. But then you see the little kids. I never want to see my child, when I have one, on the side of the street not having anywhere to sleep, not having a place to get an education and things like that.

John Wall willing to help Wizards recruit KD

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall said he’d be happy to assist the franchise in its attempt to land future free agent Kevin Durant. The Oklahoma City Thunder star will be the most coveted free agent on the open market next summer and the Wizards, Durant’s hometown team, expect to be in the running. “There’s gonna be an opportunity to throw a pitch at him to try to get him to come back home,” Wall told Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.
