Up by 7 with 40 seconds left on the clock and All-Star John Wall is willing to dive into the crowd to try to save a possession.  Dangerous and questionable decision but worthy of praise in my book and some of his teammates. “I thought he was crazy for a minute,” teammate Bradley Beal said. “But that’s him. He lays it out on the line, each and every game. … You can’t knock his hustle.” “I’m thinking that I want him to land safely,” Butler said. “That’s our guy. We need him.” Wall finished with 2 points, 11 assists, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steals as the Wizards survived almost giving up a 25 point lead to the Blazers.

This isn’t the first time Wall take a leap into the stands. Check him out in his college days impressing the cheerleaders.
