2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: John Wall


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-4, 195

School: Kentucky, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Practically unstoppable on the drive
  • Lightning quick with the basketball
  • Natural playmaker
  • Outstanding court vision and ability to create for his teammates
  • Unselfish; usually looks pass first
  • Explosive at the rim
  • Terrific ability to finish
  • Can knock down outside shots or pull-up jumpers
  • Good free-throw shooter
  • Great poise for someone as young as he is



    Weaknesses:
  • Must cut down on turnovers
  • Plays too out of control at times
  • Potential to be a lockdown defender but needs to commit more to that end of the floor
  • Very lackadaisical when guarding away from the ball

    Summary: It is difficult to put into words how talented Wall actually is unless you have seen him play. He came into Kentucky with an incredible amount of hype and has lived up to every bit of it. There is no question he is the top prospect in the 2010 NBA Draft.

    Player Comparison: Derrick Rose - Besides the parallel of being freshmen point guards playing for John Calipari, the similiarities between these two are right on, which is why Wall is No. 1 on every mock draft out there. Both players just seem to have an extra gear in their ability to break down a defense especially in transition. Like Rose, Wall is quiet and often times emotionless when he plays, but understands how to lead a team and is probably a better shooter than Rose was in his freshman season at Memphis.
