Throughout All-Star weekend I monitored various Twitter and Instagram feeds for any interesting pics or comments or whatnot involving John Wall, Bradley Beal or the Washington Wizards in general. Fine, I also kept tabs on J. Michael and Chris Miller especially when there were hopes they would eat this or wear that.
At one point I posted something on Wall doing 360's and various things, but our on-site crew clearly had the scene covered for the final three days. So several links were headed to my computer's trash bin, including this pic Wall tweeted out on Friday of him with NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The next day the Wizards point guard would win the Slam Dunk contest. The following day Wall would play in the actual All-Star game.
Anyway, on Monday Abdul-Jabbar posted a picture on Instagram of his meet up with Wall, which led to this nonsensical post from yours truly.
Clearly the master of the Sky Hook's heart is in the right place even if his facts are not. Slam Dunk champion, yes. All-Star MVP, no, not in 2014 anyway.
Anyway, Abdul-Jabbar gets a pass for this turnover. He was in "Airplane" after all.
