NBA All-Star 2014: John Wall Gets Selected as All-Star Reserve for the First Time

For the first time in his four seasons in the NBA, former first overall pick John Wall has been selected to represent the Washington Wizards in the NBA All-Star game.

John Wall has averaged a career high 19.8 points per game to go along side 8.5 assists, and has put the Wizards in position to make the post-season for the first time in half a decade.

The Wizards haven’t had an All-Star on their roster since Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler, and Antawn Jamison led them to the playoffs. John Wall has been through ups and downs this season, but has emerged as the best point guard in the Eastern Conference. If fan votes didn’t determine the starters, John Wall would probably be the starting point guard in the East.

Without Rajon Rondo, Derrick Rose, and a struggling Deron Williams, John Wall was destined to make his first All-Star appearance this season. He’s certainly well deserving and I have no doubt that he’ll be representing Washington in the All-Star game many more times.

His hard work this past off-season is paying off and there’s been no one more deserving of the recognition.

Congratulations to John Wall-Star, on the All-Star selection!
