After having played 40 matches in three years, and at the end of a white season, John Wall will relaunch his career at the Clippers. The former All-Star point guard warned that everyone was going to be surprised by his level of play, and that he was ready to be the 3rd option on offense. For DeMarcus Cousins, who played with him in Kentucky then Houston, Wall could not have dreamed of a better situation.
” John Wall is like a brother to me. He was the witness of my marriage “he recalls in the show Buckets on YouTube. ” I think it’s the perfect opportunity at this stage of his career. »
For Cousins, still looking for a club after a stint in Denver, only victory will allow Wall to make criticism of him disappear.
” You have ups and downs in your career. You start getting these labels, you start getting these reputations and whatever you want Cousins continues. ” But all that can be erased when you win. »
The environment seems to be ideal for Wall after two years with the Rockets, in a franchise in the midst of reconstruction.
“The team is incredible. They have a great coach in Ty Lue. It’s a first-class franchise. [Steve] Ballmer is an amazing owner. I just think he’s in a perfect position to take his career to the next level. To put his name back on the front of the stage and so that he is well seen. I think he will take this team to the next level by playing with Kawhi [Leonard] and PG [Paul George].”
