NBA John Wall: Veteran teammates used to think ‘I was a joke’

By T.O.N.Y. - 23 hours ago

No moment encapsulates John WallÂ’s first few years in the NBA like JaVale McGee running back on defense with the Wizards still on offense. Wall was helpless to do anything but cup the ball and shake his head at his teammateÂ’s ridiculousness.

Washington went 72-158 in the three seasons after drafting Wall No. 1, the NBAÂ’s third-worst mark during that span behind only the Bobcats and Cavaliers.

But it wasnÂ’t his fault they brought him in to play with players like McGee, Gilbert Arenas, Andray Blatche and Nick Young. Still, WallÂ’s reputation took the hit because of his lofty draft status.

There was a real worry the WizardsÂ’ character would rub off on Wall and sabotage his promising career.

Abe Schwadron of Slam on Wall:

He remembers guys like Andre Miller, Drew Gooden and Marcin Gortat being skeptical when they first got to Washington. Until last season, Wall was known as nothing more than an exciting player on a laughable loser.

“They thought I was a joke and that I didn’t take basketball serious,” says Wall. “That’s what they thought looking in from the outside. They were looking at what I was around.”

Meticulously, the Wizards unloaded their clowns, and Wall thrived. He became an All-Star and led Washington deeper into the playoffs than its gone in decades.

Now, he’s routinely recognized as a star, not a “joke.”

SchwadronÂ’s article is a quality look at WallÂ’s place in the league now, including:

Just listen to his five-year plan: “I see myself being the MVP of the League, being a Finals MVP, winning a Championship for DC, being a multiple All-Star, All-NBA team and hopefully signing another five-year deal in DC. I love playing in DC.”

It’s worth reading in full to learn why Wall’s veteran teammates came around to believing in him – and why he believes in himself.

NBA LeBron James is Already Running Out of Patience With The Cavs’ Process

By MGz - 23 hours ago

LeBron James’s initial thrill of returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers is long gone. With the Cavs (5-5) playing .500 basketball, King James is searching for answers and running out of patience, which he called his “biggest test.”

“My patience isn’t [endless],” James told reporters earlier today, before his Cavs tip-off against the Washington Wizards tonight. “I have a low tolerance for things of this nature. So it’s something I’m working on, as well, which I knew from the beginning that that was going to be my biggest test to see how much patience I got with the process.

“What helps me out is I’ve been through it before, but at the same time, I’m a winner, I want to win, and I want to win now,” he continued. “It’s not tomorrow, it’s not down the line, I want to win now. So it’s a fine line for me, but I understand what we’re enduring right now.”

As for Kevin Love’s recent request of seeing more touches on the blocks? James says if Love demands the ball in the post, he’ll get it. After losing to the defending champion Spurs on Wednesday night, Cleveland’s tough stretch continues with the Wizards (7-3) in D.C. tonight, before heading back home to face the surging Toronto Raptors (9-2) on Saturday night.

NBA Miami heat's Birdman and Cole in trade rumors (Cleveland?)

By YoungRay20 - 23 hours ago

After an offseason characterized by major roster changes, it seems as if the Miami Heat may not be done making moves just yet.

According to Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in trading for Norris Cole and Chris “Birdman” Andersen of the Miami Heat.

Andersen seems like a logical addition for the Cavs, who are seeking more defense and a veteran rim protector. After signing with the Heat down the stretch in 2012, Andersen has seen a career resurrection and his energy on both ends of the floor can be an asset to any team.

Cole is a more perplexing trade target, despite having more than a little Ohio in his blood after growing up in Dayton and playing his college ball at Cleveland State.

The Cavs already have a scoring point guard in Kyrie Irving, and despite the 26-year-old ColeÂ’s proven ability to contribute in key spots, he doesnÂ’t seem like a natural fit for what Cleveland is trying to do. However, Cole has long been a fan of LeBron James, and a reunion in his home state may be enticing for him.

But aside from the hometown connection, itÂ’s hard to see how this deal could take place in the near future.

First off, I donÂ’t see Cleveland being willing to part with any of the pieces that Miami may ask for in return. Cavs fans and coaches alike fell in love with Matthew DellavedovaÂ’s heart and energy last season, and I donÂ’t see the team shipping him elsewhere. Second round pick Joe Harris has also been impressive in his rookie campaign, and with those two being mentioned as the most likely assets to be dealt, I donÂ’t see a deal anywhere on the horizon.

In addition, Andersen just signed a two-year, $10 million dollar deal with the Heat this offseason, meaning he isnÂ’t eligible to be traded until after December 15th. That could put a damper on the Cavs plans, but only time will tell if that will be a deterrent or simply a delay in the process.

According to Skolnick, Cleveland may not be the final destination but that doesnÂ’t quite mean Cole and Andersen are staying in Miami either.

After watching some of their favorite players bolt this offseason, it may be difficult to hear that two more key contributors from the teamÂ’s two NBA titles could be on their way out.

But after LeBron JamesÂ’ departure this summer, Pat Riley vowed to make moves that would continue to keep his team competitive. If Riley feels that he has an opportunity to improve the roster by dealing either Cole or Andersen, it could be time for another painful goodbye in Miami.
