Notes: 2010: Selected by Washington in 1st round (1st overall) of the NBA Draft...2011: NBA All-Rookie First Team...2013: Re-signed with Washington to a five-year contract extension worth $80 million, July 31st...2014: NBA All-Star...2015: NBA All-Star.
SEC Player of the Year as a freshman...Averaged 16.6 ppg and 6.5 apg as a rookie while playing nearly 35 minutes per game...Widely considered the top prospect in this draft class...Has jaw-dropping athleticism that is best realized in the open court...Has terrific size for the point guard position and sees the floor extremely well...Wants to be great and certainly has the potential to elevate an NBA team...Considered further along at this point of his career than Derrick Rose, who was the top pick by Chicago and also played under John Calipari, Wall`s college coach...Tremendous passer in transition...Wants the ball in his hands during crunch time and made multiple game-winning shots at Kentucky...Can handle effortlessly with either hand...Quick hands and long arms make him a terror as an on-the-ball defender...Has huge hands...A true point guard with through-the-roof potential...Needs to improve jump shot to be a truly elite player...Needs to become a more polished and patient player in the half court...Turned the ball over too much at times in college...This will likely always be referred to as the "John Wall" draft.
