John Wall Making a Name for Himself in the NBA


Former Kentucky star John Wall is making quite a name for himself during his rookie season in the NBA.

Here is an excerpt of comments about Wall from NBA.com:

“When he gets to be a little more aggressive scoring the ball and making those shots he is going to be a handful,” said the Knicks Chauncey Billups.

“Ultimately every point guard is judged by their ability to carry a team down the stretch,” said Saunders. “It’s kind of like a quarterback in football. We don’t think that is going to happen in his rookie year, but he is going to get there.”
