John Wall Narrowly Misses All-NBA Honors


Star point guard John Wall did just about everything he could during his fourth season in the NBA earning his first nod to the NBA’s All- Star game as well as leading the Washington Wizards to the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.   Maybe the only thing left off of his remarkable season was narrowly missing the ALL-NBA teams. Wall wrapped up his outstanding 2013-14 season averaging 19.3 points, 8.8 assists to go along with 4.3 rebounds per game.

This however wasn’t enough as today the NBA announced its top three starting lineups with Wall not on the list. The University of Kentucky product was second in the “others receiving votes categories” just 15 votes behind Carmelo Anthony. The selections were chosen by 125 sports writers and broadcasters from the United States and Canada. A first place vote for represents five votes while a second team vote represents 3 votes, and a third team vote signifies one vote.

Wall finished just out of the voting with 70 points as Tony Parker (First team), Chris Paul (Second team), Damian Lilliard, and Goran Dragic (Third team) each earned the top honors. Wall will have many chances to come as he enters the 2014-15 campaign with another year under his belt and the fuel to light the fire.

    Wall narrowly misses a lot stuff. Olympics, all-star starter (dawned uncle drew campaign). But this one is hard to debate. The guards ahead of him had great seasons. I hope he uses it as motivation.
