For those of you saying John is gonna be a bust, that he should be traded, that this is the true John Wall, maybe you should check out Deron Williams right now...
John Wall's stats this season:
13.3 ppg 7.1 apg 4.6 rpg 4.2 topg 1.3 spg 1.0 bpg 35% fg 73.5 ft%
Deron Williams' stats this season:
18.3 ppg 8.4 apg 3.3 rpg 1.3 spg... but wait: 4.4 topg 36.6% fg
Is this the same PG we called a top 2 PG in previous years? What's going on. Why is he shooting 10% worse, why are his turnovers up a full topg?
Well, Deron is in a similar situation to Wall. Surrounded by a lack of shooters on a poor team. He is also in a system that might not fully suit him. But he is struggling horribly right now. He is playing about as bad as Wall.
So before you go condemning John Wall to a continued career of struggling, take into consideration what another great PG in a similar situation is doing right now.
