John Wall: 'I'm the Best Point Guard in the League'

Andy Bailey@@AndrewDBaileyFeatured ColumnistNovember 27, 2013

In a bit of news that might surprise Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Stephen Curry and Russell WestbrookWashington Wizards star John Wall is the best point guard in the NBA right now. 

Well, at least according to Wall:

After posting 31 points and nine assists in a 116-111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night, Wall could find himself all over Twitter even before dropping that bomb:

His recent play has certainly moved him up the ladder in the NBA's point guard hierarchy:

But first in the league? Come on, John. CP3 has that argument cornered.

The Clippers point guard is averaging a league-best 12.5 assists a game and boasts an insane player efficiency rating of 27.6. And, oh yeah, his team has a winning record.

To Wall's credit, his recent play has been instrumental in Washington winning four of their last five games, and his confidence shouldn't be seen as a fault.

What's he supposed to think? The all-time greats in every sport had this kind of confidence in themselves, and there's a good chance they wouldn't have gotten where they did without it.

If Wall truly believes he's the best point guard in the NBA, he might just get there one day.
