John Wall Impressive in Season Debut
The Wizards have failed to launch since he arrived, but his long-awaited unveiling signaled a new start for (John) Wall and his team. After using the first three quarters to get his “jiggly” legs under him, Wall gave the Wizards — and the fans — a reminder of the speed, excitement and flash that they’ve been missing. It added up to 93-83 victoory over the Atlanta Hawks.
“It completely changes the dynamics of this team,” (Martell) Webster said of Wall’s return. “I was telling him, ‘You know man, you kind of just got back. Take it easy.’ He was like, ‘I don’t know how to do that.’ The kid is bred to go and he does that.”
