John Wall Aiming to Get Wizards in Playoffs Next Season

by April 12, 2011

Wall’s goal for his second year in the L is fairly simple: Playoffs or bust. The WaPo reports: “In the euphoria of the Wizards’ incredible comeback, overtime victory over the Boston Celtics, John Wall was already overlooking the regular season finale in Cleveland on Wednesday and thinking about next year. In a postgame television interview, Wall said he was focused on making the playoffs in his second season. Afterward, Wall didn’t back away from his pledge. ‘That’s our goal,’ Wall said. ‘We played against teams that’s in the playoffs, we beat some of them; we lost to some of them. We’ve had close games against them, but I think we all are going to be mature next year, learn how to close out games learn how to trust each other more, like how we’ve been doing the last couple of games.'”
