Newly revised for the 2017-2018 NBA season, John Wall: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Fastest Point Guards details the inspirational story of basketball's superstar point guard, John Wall. John Wall's emergence as a top point guard in the NBA amongst the likes of Chris Paul, Stephen Curry, and Russell Westbrook has definitely been a surprise. From once struggling to behave in school and on the basketball court to being benched by his high school basketball coach, John Wall has come a long way since being drafted as the first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. The rest is history as the Washington Wizards have emerged to become one of the top teams in the East. In the 2014 NBA Playoffs, the Wizards won their first playoff series in nearly a decade, defeating the Chicago Bulls in five games.

Since that playoff campaign, the Wizards have continued their relevance in the Eastern Conference as a formidable opponent behind the leadership of John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Marcin Gortat.

John Wall is easily one of the most dynamic point guards to play the game of basketball. From flashy crossovers to speedy races down the court on the fastbreak, John Wall has a bright basketball career ahead of him.

Here is a preview of what is inside this book:

  • Early Life and Childhood

  • College Years at Kentucky

  • John Wall's NBA Career

  • Wall's Personal Life

  • Wall's Impact on Basketball and Beyond

  • John Wall's Legacy

An excerpt from the book:

What makes an NBA player a star? Is it the spectacular highlights or flashy dunks? Maybe it is the endorsements paid by global companies. How about putting up impressive numbers such as points, rebounds, or assists? Could that be it? Maybe it is the impact they have on the game of basketball.

The answer is none of the above. In the narrative-driven world of sports journalism, an NBA star is defined by whether he wins or loses. Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki was widely panned as a choker when the Mavericks collapsed in the 2007 first round, but today, he is revered as an all-time great after winning the 2011 title. LeBron James was castigated for his failures in the 2011 Finals. But today, he is respected after winning two straight rings and after delivering the first title to the Cleveland Cavaliers. More often than not, the justifications or excuses for why a winner won or a loser lost are made up in hindsight as opposed to calm analysis.

Even LeBron James, who came into the league in 2003 as the next face of the NBA, was marketed as the man that would carry the league into the future. Before winning his first NBA title in 2012 and despite arguably playing at a level a cut above the rest of the NBA, LeBron was criticized for his lack of a championship ring and for struggling in his Finals appearances.

But when James finally won the NBA title he rightfully deserved, he was immediately catapulted to a level of stardom unseen since the peak of Kobe Bryant. He was even put on a pedestal high enough to challenge all-time greats such as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. That was what winning a championship did to LeBron. By becoming a winner, he was immortalized.
