On Thursday, Houston Rockets guard John Wall went to the MedStar Wizards Performance Center one last time to say goodbye to the folks at Monumental Basketball according to Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington.

In addition, Wall gave a message to the D.C. area with the following:

The message is also in text below:


Where do I even begin? Ten years is a long time to think back on. I came to DC as a skinny 19 year old with big dreams and goals. You embraced me and my family with open arms. You rocked with me from day 1 until now.

From a young rookie to an All-star, I did my best to make you proud. Through good times like that Game 6 versus Boston, through injuries & rehab, I always felt the love from you. I appreciate you and will ALWAYS have love for DC.

I may not wear the jersey anymore but I will never forget what it meant to represent for y’all. This isn’t the way I thought I would say goodbye to this city, so I won’t.... I will say THANK YOU!



Thank YOU John for rep’ing the District. Go get ‘em in Houston with the Rockets! (Just take it easy on us when we see you at Capital One Arena.)
