To say John Wall is in a tough situation for one of the NBA’s most talented point guards would be an understatement. The Washington Wizards just lost to the Philadelphia 76ers, which is their third straight loss, and it takes their record to 2-8. On top of the Wizards’ terrible performances, Wall is in a basketball ghost town. He’s one of the most athletic players the game of basketball has ever seen, but you don’t see his jerseys everywhere, you don’t see people rocking a John Wall signature shoe, and you don’t see his name hardly anywhere. Wall needs a change of scenery, for his basketball career and his marketability off the court.

Multiple former Wildcats, including Wall, are featured on this list of players who have great talent, but not a good team around them.
Fox earned a comparison to Wall from Wall himself, so it’s obvious that everyone else will be drawing the comparison as well. Rightfully so; Fox has the kind of blazing speed and athleticism we saw from Wall.
Again, this is a list with some former Wildcats on it; DeMarcus Cousins and Wall could be frustrated to the point of no return.
Dick Vitale has high praise for the young Wildcats in this column. He loves everything they can do, despite their inexperience.
Falling short of .500 with a 5-7 record for the third year in a row would be heartbreaking for Mark Stoops and the entire program. Hopefully the Cats can put their losing ways behind them this Saturday, and go onto a bowl game showing that we haven’t seen the best of them yet. In addition, Stoops wants his team to show out against Louisville.
It’s hard to seem like you’re a legitimate opponent when no one on your team scores in double figures. The Spartans were shut down from the jump against Kentucky.
But it’s not because of the 4-0 beatdown Team USA suffered at the hands of Costa Rica; Klinsmann’s decision making has been dreadful and led to multiple other debacles.
A game-winning dunk is always exciting, but the way Westbrook did it makes it even better. A posterizing slam to seal the deal.
Porzingis comes into a game against Washington having scored 35 points against Detroit, putting him in great position to have a monster game against a bad Wizards team.
At least he has a sense of humor about it.
At least he was willing to take time for the fan, right?
This seems like a messy situation that needs some innovation.
