Randy Wittman isn't sweating Falk's 'knucklehead comments' about John Wall

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

You can add the Wizards coach to the list of people who aren't impressed with David Falk's scouting chops.

Washington Wizards Coach Randy Wittman isn't putting much stake into agent David Falk's recent comments that John Wall is a "big tease" who "doesn't have a feel for the game." Asked about Falk's statements on ESPN 980's The Sports Fix, Wittman said (as transcribed by Sarah Kogod of the DC Sports Bog):

"I don't react to agents," Wittman said. "That's why they are who they are. He's not at our practice. He don't even know who John Wall is. As far as I'm concerned, he might be pissed off that John Wall isn't his client. I don't respond to knucklehead comments from people like that and I'm not going to."

As for Wall, Wittman thinks it's a little early to pass judgement on the third-year point guard, good or bad.

"This is his third year. He's 22 years old - just turned 22," he pointed out. "He missed three and a half months of not being able to do anything from this injury. He comes back. He's still not where he needs to be from a conditioning standpoint because of this injury. You continually judge John as this season progresses. We've got 31 more games. I think we've all seen the benefit of having John and [the difference of] not having John. And now as we continue on this track, and then at the end of this season, I think we'll have a much better idea of where we are as a team with John, and is he gonna be a guy that is gonna be a centerpiece.


"I think sometimes we judge these kids so soon, and then start labeling these guys when they're 21 or 22 years old," he continued. "We see it with Bradley Beal. Fair or unfair. You cannot predict at 19 years old where he's gonna be right now. Do we like what we see in his development? Absolutely. And that's the same thing with John."
