Last week, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal got the opportunity to pick their teams to play in the upcoming NBA Rising Stars game during the 2012 NBA All Star Weekend in Orlando, Florida.
Wizards guard John Wall was selected 12th overall in the draft and if you read his comments about it, he’s was not too pleased about it:
“It’s a joke to me,” said Wall, who is averaging 16.9 points and 7.5 assists in his second season. “If they think there are 11 guys better than me, then that’s their decision. But I know what I think in my mind and all I can do is go out there and play basketball the way I know how to play.”
