Henry Abbott, ESPN.com: Stephen Curry. A player at his age (23), who combines that shooting and vision, could quickly become incredibly important in the right setting. I'd love to watch a team built around him.

Joe Gerrity, Hornets 247: John Wall will likely wind up in the top five or 10 within only a few years. Can't imagine anyone else from 40-50 doing that, so I'll go with Wall.

Devin Kharpertian, Nets Are Scorching: John Wall (No. 40). By next year, he'll be in the top half of 50, and it's only a matter of time before his two-digit ranking becomes one.

Chris Palmer, ESPN The Magazine: Easily John Wall, who clocked in at No. 40. He's got the skill, talent and desire to become a top-five player in this league; end-to-end, Wall is the fastest player in the league and one of its five best athletes. Right now, he's plagued by the mediocrity that is the Washington Wizards. As Wall continues to grasp the concepts of leading a team and develops his outside shot, Derrick Rose will soon envy his game. In fact, two years from now he's ahead of Rose and Russell Westbrook in these rankings.

Jared Wade, 8 Points, 9 Seconds: John Wall without question. He will likely be in the top 10 within three years, but even if he falls short of that, it's hard to imagine Wall not at least matching the ascension of Russell Westbrook, who ranks 15th. Such a jump advances Wall 25 spots, and no one else in the top 50 is leapfrogging more players than that.

NBA writers also said D.Rose wouldn't be MVP, wouldn't win ROY and wouldn't do half the sh*t he's done..fu*k do they know.

not taking the mvp away from d-rose but he benefited from lebron moving to the heat. lebron would have won mvp easily if he didn't join the heat.


fact is wall is more athletically gifted than rose and clearly has a better court vision. and has potential to be better than d-rose.

we'll see what happens though.

Wall will be 10x the player Westbrook is based on the fact he'll never ballhog like Russell did. JW actually looks to get people involved and pass. Rose is a amazing player with a mvp trophy so sh*t, just being mentioned with him is a compliment

John Wall is a runaway freight train..if he doesn't change his game he'll be on the DL a lot...and the tape of the DC vs. Philly game will surface where his food was eaten on numerous occasions...I think Lou had like 50

you talking about 1 single summer league game? guarantee not a single nba head will give a flying fu*k about what took place that night.

if we're going to talk summer league ball, Wall had the illest off-season behind KD. that isnt even debatable

wall will accomplish the same. except for roy because he was set up to fail. the american public fell in love with blakes dunks even though wall was the best rookie by far and lead his team all year.

I doubt he will, in fact nobody probably has had a finer first 3 years in the last 20 years than Rose..
