John Wall Goes All Mrs. Nick Cannon
Apparently John Wall said he prepared for his opening pitch before the Nationals game last week because he didn't want to embarrass himself, like former Wizard Caron Butler did when he dribbled a ball to home plate a few years prior at a Nats game.
But, what DBSF doesn't get is how Wall can average over 8 assists per game in the NBA, can dish no-look behind-the-back passes while going full speed on a fast break, and can hit teammates in stride on free throw line-to-free throw line passes with a defender in his face, but he can't time the release of a baseball so it projects at an even slightly parallel route to that of the ground.
This all got DBSF thinking that John Wall has a little Mariah Carey in that wind-up. At least Mariah can blame the heels; Wall even got hooked up with his own custom Nats jersey. A bad omen for the Wizards next year, DBSF asks? Then again it might position them well for the Jared Sullinger race to the bottom in 2012.
