John Wall is a pretty special point guard that we don’t really appreciate enough until he does something incredible. Well tonight he did something incredible. In a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Wall finished with 18 points and 18 assists including this embarrassing no-look dime that made Minnesota look silly.
When a guy like Wall does something like this the only reasonable response is to sit back and say “Wow, that dude is one of the best passers I’ve ever seen” which apparently is what Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng did. They thought they had him trapped and heading back towards the perimeter, but what Wall was really doing was pulling them out so he could drop this gorgeous dime.
Sorry guys, there’s nothing you could have done to stop this one. Let this be a lesson to everybody to appreciate Wall just a little bit more.
