Washington Wizards: See What John Wall Claims the Wizards Will Do Next Season

Kevon RobinsonCorrespondent IApril 13, 2011

First off, I would like to apologize for the poor quality in the video, you may need to turn your volume up a little higher to hear the post-game interview.

In case if your volume doesn't work, here is the main quote I want to share my opinion about from John Wall:

"And [next year], we're going to be in the playoffs," Wall said. "That's for sure."

That quote itself brought a lot of double-takes from viewers at home.  Now, in reality, the more ideal future for the Wizards would be two years of rebuilding and get pieces around John Wall, then playoffs in the third year (with good draft picks and free agent pickups).  

It's actually good that Wall recognizes that it is a rebuilding process for the franchise and that he is staying committed with his head up.  This is one of the examples of why teams draft players off of their intangibles and leadership skills.  Honestly, nobody is expecting John Wall to lead his team to a playoff spot next year, but he already has better rookie numbers than Derrick Rose did in his rookie year, so who knows what he will be like next year.

Although the Wizards finished the season terrible, John Wall said the right things that might have jump-started D.C. sports to becoming relevant again.
