John Wall Says He’s the NBA’s Fastest Player

by March 28, 2013

Despite the OKC Thunder pounding his team 103-80 last night, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall remains a very confident fella. Wall claims that he’s faster than Russell Westbrook and everyone else in the League. Per the Oklahoman: “Different people have different opinions on who blazes the biggest blur. But make no mistake about John Wall’s allegiances in this debate. His unwavering support is for John Wall. ‘No,’ Wall said, when asked if Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was the fastest player in the league. ‘I’m going to say myself.’ Ok then, is Westbrook at least second? ‘It’s tough man,’ Wall said in the postgame locker room Wednesday night, minutes after shooting 3/18 in Washington’s 103-80 loss to Westbrook’s Thunder. ‘There’s a couple fast guys in this league. He’s up there, Derrick’s up there, when he’s healthy. Mike Conley’s pretty quick. There’s a couple guys. Ty Lawson’s quick. So there’s a lot of guys, but I put myself first.’ Despite that unabashed confidence, Wall was still very complimentary of Westbrook after the loss, even admitting that Westbrook is at a place in his career Wall hopes to one day find himself.”
