Watching that gave me vertigo
Huh? This has been done before so what’s the big deal?
by “big deal” do you mean its a Youtube clip?
Some of those people were acting like they had just seen Jenna Jameson take her top off on the jumbotron.
just too fast, Javale and Cartier had no clue where he went
All you mongs not understanding what that clip was about should get up from behind their weak-ass computers, go outside, find a hoop, and try and do that. You just witnessed the ROY giving you a little taste of what to expect.
No Offense, I have done this and seen other people do this, so this is really no big deal, but I guess, some people have never seen a 360 layup in person. BOOK IT!!
Is that girl at :08 smuggling basketballs in her shirt ?? DAMN !!!
Oh, jeesh guys. Give someone credit where credit is due. That was sick. He split a screen, had two guys collapse on him, did some crazy acrobatics with enough body control to make the shot. That is amazing.
The Seed for ROY
Yeah nice move, but its just a 360 lay up.
It’s pretty impressive how he spins his way between two defenders, and his finish is really nice, sometimes you see a 360 where they just throw it up kinda sloppy. This one looks really good.
video is only good for the girl that pops up at the end.
Uh, did anyone notice when he did his 360 INBETWEEN TWO DEFENDERS??????
Anyone saying “they could do this” is full of crap. Yeah I can do a 360 layup but I don’t have a prayer of doing it while splitting two defenders. That was a crazy move.
get back on d, young’un
Cosign @Saviour and Seed
Nice move, but I sure hope he doesn’t do that posturing stuff in the L.
You try to do that move between a 7 footer and a guard with NBA quickness. Then talk.
John Wall is co-ROY with Blake Griffin this year, guaransheed.
It was great and stuff, but it was a layup. Arenas is going to steal the show in DC…
I can’t see the video at work, but my man D. Rose does a 360 layup like every other game
I’m sorry, but why did everyone glorify Allen Iverson’s crossovers, which is the most common playground technique you will ever see, but when someone splits a defender by doing a 360, it’s considered baby stuff?
this is the crazy stuff this kid did in high school all the time
@Jukai: We glorify AI’s crossovers because he was one of the “early adopters” of that move and popularized it.
It’s sort of like Beckham’s free kicks. He bent the ball something fierce, but lots of players nowadays can do it.
In fact, if Jordan was a rookie in the league, we’d probably say he was coping Kobe’s style.
Jdubbs: So who popularized the 360 split defenders layup in the NBA?
@jdubbs.. what the.. not sure if jordan would literally copy someone else’s style, but kobe Actually does copy Jordan’s style, from the way he plays to the little celebration stuff he does. every. single. little. thing. if his hands were just a bit bigger and if his hops just a bit higher, he would be perfectly identical to mj
definitely a sick move by wall, level of difficulty is high up there. the quickness and ability to react to split a defender mid-air via 360.. amazing. props to the kid for the move. (however, VC made the move popular, yet anytime someone does something like that, gotta recognize)
The Seed: im sure u have done this before, but when have u done it in between (he brought the ball down in mid air to avoid the second player. CRAZY!) two guys that are prolly 1/2 foot taller than u? and that were nba level talent?
All you clowns that are downplaying the move are just FAT slobs that can’t move your arm without going into cardiac shock. Damn haters are always quick to hate and talk ish about a GREAT move but hoot and holler about a regular a** play made by you know who.
1) the crossover was sick
2) the finish was bananas
3) that chick at 08 was stacked as hell
4) that chick at the end looked like a resident evil zombie
great clip all things considered
It took 27 posts to get to Kobe MJ comparisons. We just need someone to call out LeBron & it’s a wrap
Co sign amir. He is way to much celebration.
did nobdoy notice he took 3 steps?
LEBRON CAN DO THIS F*CK KOBE
That was Yi and Martin; not Javale. Move was sick as hell. The refs woulda needed slow mo to see the three steps but your right BE.water. Im not saying he’ll get the ROY but the name plate alredy reads John effin’ Wa..
YEAH BUT AT LEAST KOBE DIDN’T NEED 2 OTHER STARS ON HIS TEAM TO DO IT!!! FU LEBRON
AT LEAST BRON DOESN’T RELAPSE EVERY TIME DRIVES BY A HOTEL!!! F*CK KOBE
KOBE R*PED ONE PERSON
LEBRON R*PED AN ENTIRE CITY!!!
LEBRON DID HIS WITH A JIMMY WHILE KOBE RAW-DOGGED IT!!! F*CK KOBE
@ t-sizzle. Kobe plays like Kobe. And to the guys with all the caps… Really my dudes?
if jeezy’s payin lebron, i’m payin’ dwayne wade.
But anyway, Wall is siiiiiick.
that was a travel
Well done everyone!
Rez – that chick at .08 looks pregnanat to me man.. she’s got a rounded belly…
A 360 layup in between two guys from the #1 pick, in front of a pro-Wizards and definitely pro-Wall crowd, and people actually asked why it’s a big deal. It’s like IQs are falling faster than apples from a tree….
It was a good move by a good player who’s only going to get better. If you cannot and have not done it on an NBA level playing against NBA guys as John just did, shut it up.
This has nothing to do with Kobe and LeBron. Those conversations about these two guys is just getting comical at this point. Kobe has his fans. LeBron has his. Most of them are not objective in any way, shape, or form when discussing it, so it’s over. Kobe’s Colorado situation is over and done with, why bring it up 7 years later? Petty BS. Again, great move by John Wall from my state, NC. Raleigh, NC in the building
I’ve done that before. He is no Tyreke Evans
cue black people acting like we just got freed from the plantation. it was nice, not life changing.
