John Wall doesn't know who Jon Bon Jovi is

Have you ever been around someone that you know is famous, but have no idea why? Well, John Wall had that happen to him last night when Jon Bon Jovi was courtside at the Wizards-Raptors game:

Legendary rock musician Jon Bon Jovi sat courtside during the Wizards' 104-101 loss to the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Center. The arena speakers pumped his classic staple, "You Give Love a Bad Name," while his image flashed across the HD scoreboard. And as it all unfolded, John Wall applauded from his seat along the bench.

Wall was simply being polite, because after the game, Wall was asked about Bon Jovi and he replied, "Who's that?"

Jan Vesely, the Czech forward getting dressed nearby, was stunned as he looked at Wall.

I'm sure Bon Jovi appreciates that the band is well known in the Czech Republic, but you'd think that they'd like to have a little more market penetration in Wall's hometown of Raleigh. Might be time to do some concerts in North Carolina.
