Video: John Wall and JJ Hickson Destroy In Las Vegas

Summer fun.

Here is footage of Washington Wizard John Wall and Sacramento King JJ Hickson doing work against strong competition at the Impact Basketball Training Facility in Las Vegas, NV. Judging off this video, it’s safe to say both Wall and Hickson have been putting in work this offseason, and will be ready when the NBA season commences. If you love young, bubbling talent, this is for you; if you don’t, well, please reconsider.

    a) Kings making the playoffs next year
    b) Wall is the truth

    As a Cavs fan, I am happy to see JJ look good, but we all know he’s still lightyears away from understanding the mental game of basketball.

    Love it. Kings just need to trade for John Wall now and were golden!

  • damn

    Both players do seem as though they improved immensely on the areas that needed improvement (pull-up jumper, range, etc). It will be interesting to see what they do in 2012…

    Man I like Wall. Kid is w/o a doubt an AllStar in this L. He’s got a long wingspan and he uses it well.

    @Eldon -
    1. Not in the West
    2. Yes!

    video shows the same shots twice in the first minute, what is that…?

    John Wall is dangerously good. The passing ability is top notch and so is the athleticism. If he gets a midrange, it’s curtains.

    JJ looking like a poor mans Amare, and Wall is looking like he ready to join the argument already.

    Wow, Wall is fun to watch. I thought Hickson was trying to be Tyrus Thomas but looks like he’s putting in the work on that jumper.

    Awesome video! John Wall looks like he’s playing against high school kids. As a Wizards fan, great to see him shooting that jumper with so much confidence.

  • yeah

    Vegas is like the Mecca of summer basketball…

  • zeus willus

    i guess they dont call carrying anymore

  • Jer Dawg

    Maybe force him to his right? Most of his damage was going left and pulling up.

    He’s naturally right-handed, but uses his left to his advantage

    “doing work against strong competition”


    If this is strong competition I’m a NBA starter.

  • seriousblack

    Wall is gonna be that dude. Once that jumper gets the tremendous amount of work it needs, it’s gonna be a wrap for the league. He’ll be like CP3 w/ Rose’s athleticism. Scary.

    wall is a beast
