John Wall is among the many NBA players at the USA Basketball minicamp in Las Vegas this week. It’s a big camp for Wall, as he was cut from the national team before the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup and was unable to play at the 2016 Olympics due to knee surgery. Now, with all eyes on the 2019 World Cup and the 2020 Olympics, Wall has a chance to suit up and be a key contributor for the red, white, and blue.
But before we get to that point, Wall must get through this minicamp, and, uh, hoo boy that might be tough. That’s not because Wall is bad at basketball — he is actually very good at basketball! — but rather, it’s because my guy looks like he’s riding the struggle bus. Here is a picture of Wall that was taken by USA Basketball.
