John Wall Knows He Has An Attitude Problem, So He Begs Flip Saunders To Take His Money

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Yes, you’re lost so spare a moment to let me explain. John Wall has recognized that he sometimes has a bad attitude. When he’s having a rough game or the Wizards are doing what they usually do, lose, Wall has a penchant to sulk and display that bad attitude.

So where does the begging Flip Saunders to take his money come in? Glad you asked.

Wall has instructed (or begged, begged sounds better) Wizards head coach Flip Saunders to fine him every time he sulks or displays that bad attitude. Can’t say that is the approach that I would’ve gone with, but that matters not.


[John] Wall had urged Saunders to be harder on him two weeks ago, asking him to keep pushing him to get better, because, “I want to be a great point guard.” He even asked to receive fines whenever he starts to pout, sulk or show frustration during games.

“It ain’t too much,” Wall said of the fines, “but it’s enough to keep my pockets empty. I don’t want to lose that money.”

You have to commend Wall for recognizing he has a problem and wanting to be the best he can be. But I’m sure some of his handlers don’t like him giving money away like this.

    You want to be pushed so you can be a better PG, then get a different coach. Why these loser coaches keep their jobs is beyond me. Washington and other teams would be better off firing them and hiring fresh talent.

    You call leading a team to the playoffs for 10 straight years loser? Then going to Detroit and winning multiple championships a loser? Hey good call bud. You're a smart one.

    @third comment: Which coach are you talking about? Flip Saunders has never won a championship. He went to the playoffs by riding Kevin Garnett all those years.

  5. If they were a better team, then I would say "bench him" so he can feel responsible for losses when he isn't playing. But the Wizards are just a very bad team and taking money will be the only action that Flip can take. Too bad – as playing time hurts more

  6. Wall has to remember…he is in a league with other great players…it will take some time…do not get too frustrated….

  7. Here is a thought John Wall: "If you want to stop pouting – STOP POUTING. If you want to be the best PG in the league – BE THE BEST PG IN THE LEAGUE." It's the coaches job to make the team better, not to make his PG the best PG in the league. You are wasting resources that could probably be better used making the team better, so that YOU can become the best PG? Grow up dude. Take responsibility for your own actions and police yourself. You know right from wrong, and if you really want to do some good, everytime YOU see YOURSELF pout, you can always donate that money to charity instead of trying to kiss your coaches' arse!!!!!!!!!
