Washington Wizards Rumors
Even Wall is dealing with aches and pains. “We just can’t blame it on injuries,” Wall said. But he also said, “When we’re healthy, we know the type of team we are. It’s been frustrating because we set higher standards. … We feel like we should be a top-four team in the East. Dealing with the injuries, we still had opportunities to win a lot of games.
John Wall is one of the best assist men in the NBA. He’s now bringing those talents off-the-court and helping all the men out there looking for last-minute Valentine’s Day advice and provides his best assist yet. “Most importantly, you can’t forget their name” Wall told CSN’s Chris Miller.
Durant was born in Washington, went to high school in Maryland and has a Maryland tattoo on his upper back. He also went to his share of Wizards games as a child, including Michael Jordan’s last game in Washington. The Wizards have been preparing behind the scenes for a serious sales pitch to persuade Durant to join them, sources told Yahoo Sports.
But regardless of his free-agency decision, Durant says he will “always be a part” of Washington. “That’s who made me who I am,” Durant said. “I walked those streets. I took that subway to the MCI Center, back when it was the MCI Center where the Washington Wizards played and the [WNBA’s] Mystics [played]. I’m always going to be a part of that community no matter what. That’s where I grew up. That’s where I honed my skills. That’s where I became a man.”
Washington Wizards guard John Wall said he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to play in Sunday’s All-Star Game after suffering a bruised right knee in Thursday’s 99-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Wall said he suffered the injury in the first quarter when he collided with Bucks guard O.J. Mayo. He stayed in the game and received treatment on his knee at halftime and after the game, according to the Washington Post.
