Picture 1 of 5
Versatility is to basketball as basketball is to John Wall. He creates scoring opportunities through tight knit passing and cutting through lanes to make his own opportunities, and shows up on defense too. This season he is averaging 1.2 steals and 2.2 blocks, which is the best start defensively Wall had since being drafted in 2010. And even with only a handful of games of Wall scoring in double digits, it is undeniable Wall has a will to win on both ends of the floor.
