John Wall Says He Is Greatest Wizard Of All-Time

For most of the last four decades, the Washington Wizards have been bad or mediocre, and at times, they have simply been a laughingstock.

But not too long ago, they had a legitimate star in point guard John Wall.

Wall’s career may be over, at least for now, but several years ago, he was a fixture on the Eastern Conference’s All-Star team.

While on “Podcast P with Paul George,” he called himself the “greatest Wizard of all-time,” although he said it could easily be Gilbert Arenas, per NBACentral.

For five straight years beginning with the 2013-14 season, Wall made the All-Star team, and during that span, he got Washington to the playoffs four times.

His best season came in the 2016-17 campaign, when he averaged 23.1 points and 10.7 assists a game and guided the Wizards to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they fell to the Boston Celtics.

But his career took a tragic turn in 2019 when he ruptured his Achilles tendon, which forced him to miss the entire 2019-20 season.

He played portions of two more seasons, but he was never even close to the same player he was prior to his Achilles injury.

Wall last played for the Los Angeles Clippers last season, and during that season, he averaged 11.4 points a game while shooting 40.8 percent from the field and 30.3 percent from 3-point range.

The Wizards are now in full rebuilding mode, and they finished with a 15-67 record this season, which was the second-worst mark in the NBA.

Wall was certainly someone who made them semi-respectable for a period of time when he played for them.
