"I'm the best two-way point guard in the league," Wall said.
It's hardly a new sentiment from Wall.
"I've been saying for the last couple of years I probably haven't been getting the recognition that I wanted," Wall said at the time. "But it comes with winning. You've got to be able to win."
The four-time All-Star was a dynamo last season when he averaged career highs of 23.1 points, 10.7 assists and 2.0 steals en route to All-NBA Third Team honors.

However, his defense left something to be desired.
Although the Wizards boasted a positive net rating (plus-3.9 points per 100 possessions) with Wall on the floor, their defensive rating ballooned to 107.3 during those same minutes.
The story was similar for Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, while Russell Westbrook's figures (plus-3.3 net rating, 104.6 defensive rating) weren't quite as robust with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
But as Wall acknowledged, winning can change perceptions in a hurry.
And with the Wizards well positioned to crack 50 wins for the first time since 1978-79, Wall's profile could be on the rise once again as he attempts to shake up the Eastern Conference landscape when October rolls around.
