Washington was playing its first of five games.

Wall’s first basket as a pro occurred with 4:30 left in the opening quarter, when he hit a jumper while backpedaling near the free-throw line.

John Wall
Round 1, Pick 1
Position: PG
Class: Freshman
School: Kentucky
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6’4″
WT: 195
Biography: Expected to be the top overall pick in the draft, the much-hyped freshman did not disappoint at Kentucky, averaging 16.6 points, 6.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds in his one season. He received nine votes to finish second in The Associated Press player of the year balloting before declaring for the draft April 7. The big and extremely athletic point guard boasts size and quickness that should create consistent mismatches against defenders. He relies on a great first step to penetrate and get to the rim, and he’s an explosive leaper which allows him to be an outstanding finisher. Wall is also a solid passer who flashes occasional creativity when distributing the ball. He’s an excellent rebounder for a guard, and his size also allowed him to block 19 shots last season. He showed a solid mid-range shooting touch, hitting 46.1 percent of his field-goal attempts. The consistent producer had only three games in which he didn’t score in double figures. While he is a strong shooter from 15 feet, he needs to improve his 3-point accuracy after averaging 32.5 percent from beyond the arc. He doesn’t always make good decisions with the ball and averaged 4.0 turnovers in 2009-10 – far too many for an NBA point guard. His free-throw shooting also needs to get better, as he hit 75 percent from the line. Wall’s quick feet and long arms should make him a strong defender, but his intensity at that end of the floor is sometimes lacking. All of those drawbacks, however, can be improved with work and good coaching, and the potential superstar is likely to be the first player to have his name called at the draft.
