The Great Wall of Kentucky

I’ve never seen a better Freshman basketball player in my life. John Wall is astounding. Check this:

Consider that Wall has played eight games and scored key points in the final minute to help win four of them. Some great college players will go entire careers without doing that. But Wall has already hit a game-winning jumper to beat Miami of Ohio, hit a pull-up jumper followed by free throws with 0.5 seconds remaining to force overtime in an eventual victory against Stanford, made two free throws with 4.3 seconds remaining to secure a win over North Carolina, and converted an I-can’t-believe-he-just-made-that three-point play with 30.8 seconds remaining to beat UConn.

If it sounds amazing, that’s because it is amazing.

If he sounds awesome, that’s because he is awesome.

What he’s doing would be incredible if he were a Senior but the guy has played just 8 games! I’m blown away.

  1. Daring to dream – Tiny Elliott County takes on the big boys in Kentucky’s one-division basketball tourney
    Great story about the small town team succeeding against the odds. Just goes to show how big basketball is here in the state of Kentucky. Did you know that “Sweet Sixteen” is a registered trademark of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association so anytime it’s used by an outside source *cough* *CBS* *cough* they receive a royalty?
  2. Which state shows the most Basketball love?
    Kentucky #1, Kansas, North Carolina Follow. But of course! Nobody loves basketball more than we do!
  3. Gadgets that broke our hearts
    It’s just as important to know the bad along as the good.
  4. Is Facebook evil?
    Maybe not all of Facebook but certainly the lawyers who are trying to take the rights to our content. If you post content on Facebook, you might want to follow this story.
  5. “Rock Star: INXS” Singer Says He’s Homeless and Bandless
    Any of you remember back when I was blogging Rock Star: INXS? It’s been four years almost. Wow. Anyway, rock stardom isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Apparently, the contest winner J.D. Fortune followed in footsteps of deceased, former frontman, Michael Hutchinson’s shoes by becoming addicted to cocaine. So the band dropped him after the tour was over. Win some, lose some. I feel bad for the guy but come on… did any of you NOT see this coming?
