“We’ve all seen the new commercial, John,” NBA TV’s Matt Winer said to Wall on Wednesday night. “You probably have a personal chef, so maybe this doesn’t apply to you in the real world. But if there were a Wall’s Wings and Burgers out there in the real world, would you be a wing guy or a burger guy?” “I haven’t had a burger in three years,” Wall said. “So I’d be a wing guy. But I know all my family, they’d be on the burger side.” Washington Post

John Wall keeps a list on his phone of the slights and criticism he hears, reads and perceives. He updates it whenever he comes across a new form of disrespect and reads it for motivation before he steps on the floor for every practice and game. Washington Post

“I thought I should’ve made the all-star team maybe four or five times,” Miller said. “It’s never happened just because it’s a popularity contest. So I just find myself going out and working hard. And I think that’s what he’s done.” Washington Post

Washington Wizards' point guard John Wall is joining the signature shoe club. Adidas unveiled the J Wall 1 signature shoe and apparel clothing line on Monday. Wall's logo with Adidas is his initials "JW" with the J crossing over through the W to celebrate his incredibly quick crossover dribble on the court. It also pays homage to his father, who passed away when Wall was just nine years old. From Adidas: CBSSports.com

Point guards Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry are considered Team USA roster locks. That left Wall, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving, who played at Duke under Krzyzewski, competing for 1-2 spots. As the odd man out, Wall now has a new source of motivation heading into the upcoming season. "Yeah, definitely, always. You want to make every team you try out for. When you don’t, it’s more motivation for me. "Not even (against) just those (Team USA point guards), but the NBA, period. I guess I’m overlooked again. I guess have to prove myself one more time."

More than a year after his split from Reebok, Wall has become of the one of the faces of Adidas and said last week that he will have a signature shoe line, complete with a personal logo, released in October. During his time in Las Vegas, Wall got to break in his new sneakers and even put on some of his personal shorts and shirts after removing his Nike-produced USA Basketball gear. Washington Post

Wall signed a five-year, $25 million deal with Reebok before he was drafted by the Wizards, but that relationship came to an end in the third year. With Wall’s career stalled by injury and an unstable Wizards roster, the partnership with Reebok soured and he moved over to Adidas, which owns Reebok. The move took Wall from being the foundation of one brand into a situation where he had to prove his worth as a player to a company that already had a stable of established all-stars.
