The Los Angeles Clippers are playing the Washington Wizards tonight at 7 p.m. ET. That’s a good game any way you look at it. But it’s even more significant considering that this is former franchise player John Wall’s first game back in Washington with fans in the arena. Wall played one game in Washington previously when he was on the Houston Rockets, but this was during the 2020-21 season when fans were not allowed in Capital One Arena for most of the regular season.
Since Wall is returning today, I think it’s also a good time for us to revisit what your favorite Wall-in-Monumental-Red moments were. Here were some that we shared on Twitter earlier today.
Osman Baig is the one who typically tweets from our main account, so I assume this was him, but here goes!
Wall had some flashes those first two seasons but struggled too. It was really this stretch when he started putting it all together! #IYKYK pic.twitter.com/MwSTw3spze— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) December 10, 2022
I’ll say this about John Wall. I became a ticket holder when Webber was here, then again when we drafted Wall. He wasn’t the perfect player but he lead us to the most success we’ve had in decades and as he’s been away longer, I appreciate what he did here more and more. pic.twitter.com/AZC3Y4ciHi— Bullets Forever (@BulletsForever) December 10, 2022
For me, I enjoyed seeing his stretch during the Wizards’ playoff runs in 2014, 2015 and 2017. The Wizards never looked dazed and confused during any part of those playoff runs. Washington truly looked like they belonged in each of the rounds they participated in.
So, what were your favorite John Wall moments? Let us know in the comments below.
