Last month, John Wall revealed that if it wasn’t for the Los Angeles Clippers, he might not be in the NBA this season.

In a recent media interview, Wall revealed the harsh reality of being nearly “pushed out” of the league last season. It was a tough time for the All-Star five times as he could not find a middle ground with the Houston Rockets. He ended up sitting all year long until finally finding a new team in the Clippers this summer.

“I think it’s kind of frustrating for a lot of great veterans we have in this league because a lot of those guys are getting pushed out,” Wall said. “I feel like I was on the edge of kinda getting pushed out myself. If I wasn’t a true professional last year and the Clippers didn’t give me a chance, I don’t know if I’d probably been here right now.

“We have so many great guys that can be like [Carmelo Anthony], Dwight [Howard], … even Kemba Walker. … You need veteran guys to help these young teams out as much as possible.”

In a recent interview, Kemba Walker responded to John Wall naming him as someone that he felt was being forced out the league.

“It’s really much appreciated. J Wall is my brother. I’ve been playing against him for yrs… It’s an honor for him to bring my name up,” said Walker.
