John Wall goes viral with his passing challenge

New, comments

It may be just a bit too hard for us though.

Earlier this week, John Wall stunned social media with the #JohnWallChallenge. No, it’s not the “Twist Fist” dance he did when he was at the University of Kentucky in the 2009-10 college basketball season. It’s a passing challenge where you make no look passes to teammates with someone in your way. BallisLife has a YouTube video that you can see above.

With these sorts of things, you know some folks will try to imitate it for their own benefit. Brandon Armstrong, a famed basketball star impersonator tried to perform a few of those passes.

As you might have guessed, Armstrong failed miserably — and this guy was a former professional player himself!

One young basketball fan was a little closer though:

All I have to say is that it’s impressive to see Wall make crisp passes like that on video. At this point, I’m just wondering if I’m going to see this in a game next season.
