Wall demanded that his coach take money out of his pocket whenever he’s not displaying the right attitude. From the WaPo: “Wall had urged Saunders to be harder on him two weeks ago, asking him to keep pushing him to get better, because, ‘I want to be a great point guard.’ He even asked to receive fines whenever he starts to pout, sulk or show frustration during games. ‘It ain’t too much,’ Wall said of the fines, ‘but it’s enough to keep my pockets empty. I don’t want to lose that money.’ Wall didn’t have that problem on Monday afternoon as the Wizards won their fourth straight at home. He was too excited.”
