John Wall highlights are quite common among Wizards fans. We’re getting spoiled by his crossovers, dunks, and spin moves. But what do announcers outside the D.C. area think when THEY see Wall do his thing?
Now, we know what Korean NBA analysts on SPO TV think of Wall’s spin move around Celtics center Kelly Olynyk toward the end of the third quarter:

According to writer Sung Min Kim, this is what the Korean announcer said:
Korean broadcast on John Wall's spin move: "That spin move was like a rat poison to Olynyk" #DCFamily— Sung Min Kim (@sung_minkim) May 13, 2017
Rat poison is apparently a common slang term in Korean. But from looking at how Olynyk reacted, he was dazed and confused. Looks like we know what to call Wall’s spin move from now on.
Oh yeah, let’s watch Wall’s rat poison in action ONE MORE TIME!
