It seems that one Washington Wizards’ problem follows another. After a poor start to the season (5-11), the franchise announced readiness to trade any player of their roster. Then, John Wall was fined, after cursing coach Scott Brooks in a recent practice.
And now, according to Stephen A. Smith of ESPN, an anonymous Washington Wizards’ player expressed his support to head coach Scott Brooks and criticized the team’s leader John Wall for his attitude to the game.
Here is what the anonymous player said, per Clutchpoints:
On John Wall’s defiance: “We love Scott Brooks. Love playing for him. He just can’t coach John [Wall]…John just walks all over him and it frustrates everybody. The way he plays is impossible to play with. We have so many guns, not enough bullets.”
On John Wall’s selfishness: “If John would just play off the ball and let others eat, we’d be fine. But that’s a difficult thing for him to do, and sometimes it’s difficult for us to watch.”
