NBA: Playoffs-Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

John Wall is pretty good at basketball.

And that’s the understatement of the year. Wall showed last night that he’s one of the best in the game; the best point guard in the East, and probably the best slasher in the NBA. His driving jam was unbelievable, and something that the vast majority of NBA players could never pull off.

Tweets of the day

John Wall balled out, but it was Andrew Harrison who came up clutch for the Memphis Grizzlies’ win last night.
