John Wall has been on a tear of late. Scoring, rebounding, assisting, stealing and showing why he still is a contender to be one of the top guards in the league.
Last night against the Warriors, he was again leading his team in scoring but had a meltdown after a bump from Klay Thompson who previously hit Wall on a possession. Wall got up and shouted at Thompson
“Go the the basket and I swear to God, I’ll knock your ass out.”
Forgetting he already had a technical from earlier in the game, he kept going at Klay until the ref came over and gave both players a tech. To Wall for yelling at Klay and to Klay for listening to Wall. Since this was Wall’s second he was ejected. After the Wizard’s loss, Wall talked about the ejection.
“I let the team down,”
“I said something, because I felt like we didn’t get a call our way,”
“Nothing outrageous, but something I knew I would get a tech for.”
