Can John Wall Break Out of Slump?
John Wall’s sullen expressions and sour mood during his recent slump belie the fact that the Washington Wizards have been a markedly improved team since he made his debut — whether he has played poorly or been electrifying.
“It’s human nature. We all want to play our best, and when you don’t, you have a sense of self whatever, self critical, down, whatever it may be,” (Wizards coach Randy) Wittman said. “That’s the thing you’ve got to watch and try to protect from. That’s why I want him to understand, he can go 3 for 12 and still have a hell of an impact and we win the game. It’s not based on making a jump shot. He can do so many other things, and keep fighting through the other part of it.”
