The Washington Wizards’ center Thomas Bryant was the latest peer to claim that John Wall is ready to take the league by storm, after two injury-filled seasons.
Bryant, who was one of the top performers last season for his team, shared his thoughts on Wall’s condition and style of play during his first press conference of training camp.
(per NBC Sports’ Chase Hughes):
“Me and John have also had a lot of good runs together out in Los Angeles. We have played pickup together and picked each other’s brains. It’s really good to have a dynamic point guard who is really looking just as good as he ever was,” Bryant said.
If Wall could return back to his best form, the Wizards will definitely become one of the primary candidates to enter the postseason, after being out of playoff contention the last two seasons.
Bryant will certainly benefit from Wall’s play, if he returns in full health in the upcoming season. The former Lakers’ big averaged a career-high 13.2 points shooting 58.1% from the field and an impressive 40.7% from the three-point range on 2.0 attempts per contest.
He also had 7.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists to cap off an incredible 46-game run with Washington in the shortened 2019/2020 season.
