Back in his Kentucky days, Wall left for the NBA after one season and was drafted with the No. 1 pick by the Wizards, who Wall has played for his entire nine year career.
Before succumbing to injury, Wall was averaging 20.7 points, 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals.
Props to him for making the most of his newfound time off.
