Tonight is not about John Wall.
Tonight is about the complete re-birth of a franchise that was dead in the water one month ago, until some ping-pong balls bounced Washington's way. Now, a five-year rebuilding process just to get back to being a playoff contender is being replaced with a plan, centered around Wall, to turn the Wizards into title contenders for the next decade.
Tonight, we finally get to see how the plan begins to come together. Sure, seeing John Wall put on a Wizards' hat for the first time will be a great experience, but if you care about the long-term direction of this team, there's plenty to watch after the first pick tonight.
For all the discussion related to tonight's events, here is your open thread.
