John Wall  is a point guard for the Washington Wizards in the NBA. This year John has been outstanding, especially in this year’s playoffs. Watching John Wall play makes me always think of the times when I play basketball. I play the same position as him, and every time I watch him play I always observe his playing style because it’s so similar to mine. The aggressiveness when I’m on the basketball court is something basketball players can’t explain. One experience I can’t forget is when I was playing my first High School district basketball game. I started that game, and the only thing going through my mind was how defense was going to be my number one priority. John Wall always talks about how defense is very important for the team, in able to succeed.

“You’ve got to stay humble and hungry. Just keep working and thank God you have a chance to play in the NBA,” John Wall said. Playing in NBA can be something all kids dream about. Playing with some of the best players in the world, and playing in front of thousands of people. The Washington Wizards are up 2-0 against the Atlanta Hawks, but now they have to travel to Atlanta and hope to succeed to the next round.  John Wall has scored tremendously these first two games, scoring 30+ in both games. This brings me back to a summer basketball game, and I happen to score 25 points. You don’t know the feeling.
