The NBA named John Wall to the Eastern Conference All-Star Team Thursday night.
The 6-foot-4 Washington Wizards point guard ranks fourth in the NBA in assists (8.5 apg), fifth in steals (1.93 spg) and 18th in scoring (19.8 ppg). He’ s nominated for Eastern Conference Player of the Month.
Robert Griffin III respects that. He’s been a Wall fan since his first Wizards game.
“I am very proud to represent the Wizards franchise and the city of Washington as an All-Star and to share this honor with the fans who have supported me and stuck by me since I arrived here,” Wall said. “I also consider this as a recognition for my teammates and coaches who have worked extremely hard to improve our team and pushed me to become a better player.”
In his fourth year, Wall is hitting a career-high 32.5 percent of his three-pointers.
Wall will play in his first NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 6, in New Orleans.
