As far as I can tell, yours truly seems to be the only person on the Internet keeping track of the John Wall/Greg Monroe silent rivalry. Now it’s time to update the scoreboard.
Monroe – 2
Wall – 1
Yep, that’s because the East’s actual deserving starting point guard in next month’s All Star Game got Monroe back for what happened on New Year’s Eve. The Wiz Kids are looking for their fourth straight win. And with said victory comes a bit of history. By defeating Detroit, Washington would move to 20-19.
That’d be the first time the franchise has been over .500 since starting the 2009-2010 season 2-1 (the year before Wall arrived). Yeah, it’s been awhile since relevant basketball was played in Chocolate City.
