For most of us, John Wall burst onto the scene as a freshmen at the University of Kentucky, the next in a long line of supremely talented point guards. He followed the paths of Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans to the NBA, but he wasn’t as heralded as those guys were through his entire career. This season is supposed to be the one where Wall takes his big step to becoming an NBA star and elevates not only his own play, but the play of all the Wizards around him. Washington has unloaded a lot of their problem players since the beginning of last season including Nick Young, JaVale McGee and now Andray Blatche after amnestying him on the last day the clause was available to them.
