Wizards point guard John Wall is a max-player, which carries huge expectations and responsibilities.
Wall is paid to be a leader on the court, but also to be a two-way player — meaning — he plays tough, gritty defense every time down the floor.
He didn’t do that in Monday’s game against the Knicks, though, when he literally just gave up and gave Emmanuel Mudiay a wide-open three-pointer, which he drained.
Mudiay is going to make that open shot nine times out of 10. Had Wall closed out on the shooter — which he’s supposed to do — maybe it would’ve been a different result.
