Wizards Coach Randy Wittman Thinks John Wall Will Have a Big Year

by September 27, 2012

John Wall is entering his third season in the NBA, and the prevailing wisdom is that the explosive point guard will figure things out and have a breakout season. Or so thinks his coach, Randy Wittman. From CSN Washington: “This is a big year for him,’ Wittman said. ‘It’s time to take that next step.’ Taken first overall by the Wizards in the 2010 NBA draft, Wall’s numbers in his first two years in the NBA were almost identical. After averaging 16.4 points, 8.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game as a rookie, Wall averaged 16.3 points, 8 assists and 1.4 steals per game in his second season. Wall improved his shooting percentage from just under 41 percent as a rookie to just over 42 percent in Year 2 and Wittman believes Wall’s willingness to work with a shooting coach for most of the summer will pay big dividends when he and the Wizards open training camp on Tuesday at George Mason University.”
