John Wall has had some not so good press this past month. And with the USA Basketball men’s training camp going on, you’ve seen pictures like this:

I won’t lie. John looks like he gained 30 pounds in that photo.
Fortunately, the photo was just bad. Wall didn’t gain 30 pounds after eating cheesecakes for three months straight. Instead, he’s been working out in Miami, L.A., and Las Vegas. He is in very good shape. You can watch Episode One of his offseason documentary above by Ball is Life, where you can see his training and reactions to various things in the summer, like LeBron James’ move to the Lakers and DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors.
Most of all, you can see Wall state his goal for the 2018-19 NBA season: Be the MVP.
Can John Wall realistically be the 2018-19 NBA MVP?
