Plus a behind-the-back slam.
We already brought two crazy LeBron James throwdowns, now enjoy John Wall’s two craziest plays: a behind-the-back dunk and an off-the-wall, not-exactly-legal windmill slam. (H/T: HoopMixtape)

Dayumm man. He got is head at the rim!
Future best point guard in the NBA!
Enigmatic, you mad that crazy prediction because of an illegal dunk? WOW
Off Wall and off the wall.
for once I agree with enigmatic. This dude is the truth. riddle. What do you get when you mix DWill’s shot & court vision and Rose’s speed & athleticism?
Wait a minute! You call this guy the truth before he ever played a playoff game or led his team to the playoffs.
It’s to early to say he will be the best point guard of the NBA.
Trust, he will be the best PG in the L someday barring injury or bolivian marching powder.
yes because athletic ability instantly equals success in the NBA…..
Talk about prisoner of the moment…
did they count the shot?
eastern conference is so so loaded at pg. up and comers like wall, jennings, and jrue holiday plus all the usual suspects like rondo, rose, and deron williams. not to mention all the major pg in the first round of this draft went to the cavs, bobcats, and pistons all in the east.
JWall would be the best point guard in the NBA if only he was humble. Currently ranks #2 in humility.
Know him well do you Nick?
Yes, because of one dunk I am now proclaiming him the future best point guard in the NBA.
It couldn’t possibly be because I’ve seen almost all his games since his days at UK and see the gobs of potential this kid has.
I’ve been proclaiming him the future top PG in the L for a minute now…
I don’t see how that’s such a crazy prediction.
Y’all acting like I just proclaimed Jarret Jack the future best PG…SMH
OUT OF BOUNDS!!!!
Enigmatic, I’m going to have to respectfully disagree. I know how much of a huge bulls fan you are as well. But, I have see Wall play since high school and in college as well. He will not be better than Derrick Rose. I am from Chicago as well, but John Wall had a better team in college and could not raise his game to get that team to the final four that year. Rose had a worse team the year he went and Rose dominated the kid this year as well. I like John Wall and he will get better, but we also have to remember Rose is only 23 and he will keep improving as well.
same ppl. sayin john wall cant be better then rose were probably those same ppl. sayin rose couldnt be better then chris paul and d-will, just sit back and see what happens
Brandon – I can respect that point of view.
Yeah, Rose is my favorite player in the game, no doubt.
And I think his career is going to be amazing.
I just see things in Wall that makes me think he could be a once in a generation type player.
But we’ll see.
Obviously, as a Bulls fan, I hope Rose will have the #1 PG spot locked up.
But as a basketball fan, like I said, that kid Wall looks like he’s gonna be mighty special.
Physically this kid has all the tools to be the best PG under 6’9 in NBA history. He’s taller than Rose, has the same wingspan as Rondo, he’s gonna be real special. He’s got a better form on his shot than Rose (rose’s got better but there’s still something weird about it) does and he’s already a better passer. With that said i wouldn’t count on him winning a ring. Ball dominant PGs haven’t won championships over the last 20 years. Play makers are overrated. You need dominant iso scorers. Since ’89 Zeke, Jordan, Dream, Duncan, Shaq, Kobe, Wade, the Celtics Big 3, and Dirk have taken all but one championship (2004) and they were all dominant iso scorers. Realistically, all you need is an average PG who’s gonna knock down 3s, not turn the ball over, and not get burned too often on D.
@ Chukaz -> In a league with few dominant big men, it is only natural that teams who rely in wing players don’t focus on people whose main function is to feed the inside players. It would be interesting to know what is the cause of most importance here, the lack of big men forcing focus in wing players, or Jordan changing the paradigm of play. OTOH I think that the playmaking type of PG is not totally dead. Stockton got to the finals, just as one example… anyone can help me with this argument I am trying to build?
@Mike From Spain) It goes both ways bro the Dallas Mavs won with a iso scorer in Dirk, but there is no way they win without J Kidd being a pure point guard. To many people get caught up in stats J Kidd ran that offense yeah Dirk went crazy, but without Kidd they don’t win.
Kidd was not ball dominant tho. His impact came thru play calling, floor spacing, and ball movement. Stockton’s role was to feed a dominant scorer. Magic wasn’t extremely ball dominant as he did his damage in transition and feeding the ball to Worthy and Kareem. It doesn’t matter if the scorer is a wing or a post player yoiu just need someone that can put the ball in the whole without much help
