UPDATE: Wall has since changed his caption to simply say, “#WizGang”.
The Wizards are probably one star away from seriously competing for an NBA championship, but John Wall doesn’t seem to care.
Wall posted a photo of him and the Robin to his Batman, Bradley Beal, captioned:
Aye @bradbeal3 I wonder who else gonna team up next to try and win a ship this year 🤔 but who care cause we all we got bro ..DC or Nothin !! #WizGang
Maybe he’s bitter, maybe he’s salty, call it what you want. But I love this move as long as he doesn’t end up being a hypocrite and forming a super team of his own one day down the road. Wall and Damian Lillard are the two players in the league I admire for their loyalty and unwillingness to conform to the “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” mentality.
The Wizards likely will end up faltering again in the Eastern Conference semis, but who cares? There’s something to be said about a guy like Wall who is willing to go to war with the super teams. There aren’t many of those types of players left.
