After having a rather disappointing summer league run, it looks like John Wall and Otto Porter have already begun working out together at the Verizon Center.
Washington is reportedly setting up a mini-camp prior to the start of training camp, led by Wall. If that doesn't show leadership, I don't know what does.
I'm excited to watch the Wizards, I'm hoping this is John Wall's breakout year but I feel as if I've said that a couple of times now.
Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, and John Wall is a very nice core, now if they could add a young big that can score down low, the Wiz might be a scary team to face in the playoffs in 2 years or so.
Wall averaged over 18 and 7 last season, and expanded on that during the latter half of the season. I'm honestly not sure why that's not considered his breakout year.
Hopefully we'll see more consistency from him.
It's not considered a breakout season because his career averages before that were 16-8. Adding 2 points and having 1 less assist isn't exactly breaking out.
A player isn't even eligible for a breakout year til his 3rd in my books.
if you thought last year was wall's breakout year, you're in for a surprise this year!
Going back to Washington early to workout with teammates is a sign that he's starting to take things seriously..... Another sign that he's more committed was when he seeked out the help of Gary Payton,a future hall of famer....
He has the talent of a top 10 player,but its the little things that he's fail to add to his game..He still struggles in halfcourt settings and needs work on his jump shot,last season he shot 27% beyond 10 feet and half of his shots came from that spot....
Where's Jan Vesely?
If John Wall started the year completely healthy last season then I think his averages would of been even higher. I see him really turning it up a notch this season and most will see it as a breakout year. :John Wall really wants to win, hes doing everything he can to become a leader and a better player. I knew he had it in him and now I hope he proves the critics wrong.
