So far, Washington Wizards guard John Wall has not made the playoffs in his four-year career and it appears that John really wants to make the playoffs this year by deciding to write the word “playoffs” on his sneakers.
We find out the specifics thanks to the Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck:
When the Washington Wizards open the season Oct. 30 in Detroit, Wall will take the court with the word “playoffs” scribbled on his shoes. He will repeat the exercise every day, through 82 games, lest he or anyone else lose sight of the goal.
“You will see it on all my shoes,” Wall said last week. “Every game pair is going to have `playoffs’ on it. That’s my main determination.”
Hopefully, John will make the playoffs or that 82-game writing streak will be for naught.
