john wall

ok, i know alot of you guys are gonna hit me up w/ the negatives, but heres what i feel.

john wall is either the next dajuan wagner or sebastian telfair. alot of hype but in the end not all that great of a player. listen, just cause D.rose is amazing, or rondo doesnt mean that wall is gonna be the next one. and if you think im a "hater" im not, i actually really enjoyed watching him play every game for kentucky, and thought he was going to do well in college. i still do like him, and hope this isnt the case, but i just have that feeling!

Please

Please tell me what aspects of his game remind you of Telfair?
You feeling most have been some bad meat or something because he will never ever be like Telfair or Wagner.

Why does everyone feel he'll be like Rose or Rondo

I don't see the Rondo thing at all...and Rose could be a good comparisson but Rose had a better scenario then Wall going in...Also not as much hype...

well, sorry let me rephrase,

well, sorry let me rephrase, i feel his game is gonna resemble wagners. (along w/ the hype) and i was saying that he is getting almost as much hype as telfair got. and hes gonna be like telfair in the sense he never lives up to expectation....but, you want a couple of similiar aspects between wall and telfair, ok. both have awful jump shots. dont even say walls jumper is ok, cause its not ive seen many games of his to know it just brutal to watch. they both are quick as hell with the ball, both have a great first step. if you ask me, i think telfair had the edge in passing and ball handling. wall is just a better athlete and a better defender.

Telfair

Some differences is that John Wall played one year of college and at points was the best college player. Not all the time, Wall can play above the rim while telfair cant. Telfair is much smaller and built skinnier. He was pushed around and outmuscled. Wall as you said much better defender. Wall had more physical tools to succedd while telfair didnt.

Wall is more Russell

Wall is more Russell Westbrook than any of these comparisons. Similar in most aspects of the game, except Wall has better vision and a better mid-range game.

Not like Rose because Rose is a better ball-handler and plays more under control. Also is more patient

Not like Rondo because he's not that kind of passer/playmaker at all and he's way more TO prone

Not like Telfair because he's less selfish and he isn't limited by his size and lack of leaping ability.

Also not stuck in between positions like Wagner.

Wow...just stop now...Wall is going to be an all-star and Wall actually has more hype now than Telfair had. If Telfair went to college people would have saw his weaknesses. Wall isn't a terrible shooter...he's very streaky.

Wagner

If he didnt get hurt he'd be in Cleveland not Mo and LeBron would have a ring. He was great in his rookie year considered the Next AI so if your sayin Wall is gonna get hurt then hey but comparing him to Wagner is stupid

I'm not even gonna speak on the Telfair matter

thank you HD_The_Kid

Wagner averaged 18 as a rookie before he got hurt. He can't play because of kidney problems.
G state signed him a while back and Nellie was ready to give him major burn but his health wouldn't let
him make it through training camp. He played the 2 guard and was a deadly shooter. Not that athletic as Wall.
Telfair is a small guard that couldn't shoot and turn out to be not as quick as people made him out to be.
John Wall is a freak athletic lice Rose that is why they compare them. He is bigger than Rose and as a freshman.
I think he has the drive to get better and will not be a bust at all. I watched the workout he had recently on draft express and
his his jumper already looks better than it did during the season. Plus if you listen to his interview he knows what he has to work on and is a very smart kid. That goes a long way into reaching one potential. He will be a star you can bet your house on it. Last but not least him game is some what unorthodox with the change of directions and the way he moves his body
on the court and his body control. Coubled with his blazing speed and length and 39 in vert he will be hard to guard at any level. What your feeling is call hate. control it my man.
