Wall on Public Perception: ‘They still don’t respect me’

“They still don’t respect me,” (John) Wall said when we sat down and I asked about his reputation nationally. “But I mean, that’s something that comes with the games. I’m gonna let people know this season.” Wall speaks in a perpetual fast break, but there’s a pause here.

“And I don’t know,” he adds. “You know what I mean? You have career years, when you’re winning games, you start an All-Star Game, and you’re still not put on the top three All-NBA teams. That lets you know. But all I can do is control what John Wall does. Going out there and leading my team. You’re not getting any recognition as a point guard if you ain’t winning.”
