John Wall may still be hurting from his latest cut from Team USA, but at least he and Bradley Beal can take out their frustrations at the gym for the rest of the summer. Beal and Wall will both be watching the FIBA World Cup stateside, which in this observer's opinion was a blatant case of Duke Blue Devils homerism that will also doom DeMarcus Cousins to be a roster casualty. Here are five ways Wall can improve next season despite the cut.
His jumper was actually quite effective last season, and he paired his shot with some of the best corner three passes in the league. Washington Wizard fans hope losing Trevor Ariza doesn't hurt too much, but Paul Pierce will make for a nice substitution in that regard. I do have my concerns about whether the small forward's age, family and interest are fully invested in playoff success for the District.
I believe Beal and Wall already have great chemistry out on the court, and it should only improve with further time spent in the gym. They seem to be friends off of the court too, which is never a bad circumstance to be operating under as a general manager.
To understand this one all you have to do is YouTube John Wall's first pitch before a Washington Nationals game. At least it was not as bad as 50 Cent's pitch. Hopefully we will never see the point guard change sports like Michael Jordan.
Wall is already showing better touch on his three-point shot. If the former Kentucky Wildcat can add in a floater as well, then we could be looking at an All-NBA first team point guard.
This one is obvious. We already saw the Chicago Bulls lose out on Carmelo Anthony mainly due to Derrick Rose being not overly interested in the small forward. Wall would have no problem whatsoever recruiting Kevin Durant, and especially if it means that last year's league MVP comes back home.
