John Wall Really Knows How To Dougie

By | 23 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=144759"> Thank god Wall aped on the court last night (29 points, 13 assists, 9 steals, 8 turnovers) or this dance would've been highly criticized by armchair QBs and fantasy owners. Nice home opener for the rook. Still, the Dougie has to rank high as one of the most feminine dances that no man should ever do publicly or in front of a camera.

Brandon Jennings & John Wall Reenact NBA Jam

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/five-kentucky-wildcats-selected-in-first-round-of-nba-draft"> I'm telling you now that the biggest obstacle in becoming the next Michael Jordan is height these days. Because the athleticism these little guys are displaying in 2010 is pretty uncanny. John Wall has yet to play a NBA game but he's already making pro highlights. In a scrimmage at the Boost Mobile Elite 24 midnight run in Los Angeles last night, the #1 pick got jiggy wit' it from a lob tossed from Brandon Jennings. All we needed was the "John Wall Dance" and this would have made the perfect <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/john-wall-signs-25-million-deal-with-reebok">Reebok commercial</a>.

The Great Wall Of D.C.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/john-walls-summer-league-debut"> D.C. is a proud sports town, even given the fact they haven't won anything of significance since the 'Skins 1991 Superbowl. This summer, however, has allowed the residents and the surrounding areas of Chocolate City to build some sense of hope. They've still got the best hockey player on the planet in Alex Ovechkin. Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb are allegedly going to lead the Redskins to the promised land. Steven Strasburg is hands down the hottest ticket in town. <a href="http://www.tedstake.com/">Ted Leonsis</a> is one of the best owners in sports while <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/08/AR2010060805083.html">recently assuming control</a> of the downtrodden Wizards.
