We’re still a few months away from the start of training camp in September, but that won’t stop John Wall from organizing work outs for his teammates in preparation for the regular season.
According to Ben Standig of CSN Washington, John Wall is setting up a “mini” training camp for the Wizards prior to the start of the actual camp.
Working out with the coaches and stuff,” Wall said about his schedule since re-joining teammates for training sessions.” Getting everybody organized, to have like a mini-camp before we start training camp
Standig heard about the news during Goodman League event where John Wall didn’t participate because of the potential injury risk.
It’s not often where a 22-year old NBA superstar takes time out of the offseason to organize work outs for the entire team. John Wall’s ability to lead the Wizards has been questioned in the past, so doing things which assert him as the true leader of the team certainly couldn’t hurt.
Wall couldn’t participate in last year’s training camp due to the stress injury which kept him out of action for 33 games. If all goes well, the entire roster will have already practiced together before the start of actual training camp. Having valuable time on the court with guys like Bradley Beal and rookie Otto Porter before the start of the season will help Wall take the Wizards to the post-season.
