The first time John Wall became aware of his ranking in the popular vote among East guards for the All-Star Game, it was after a Christmas Day victory at the New York Knicks.
As we start a new year, John Wall continues to top Eastern Conference guards in All-Star votes as the second round of returns were announced by the league on Thursday.
For a player who handles the ball so much and creates so much off the dribble, John Wall doesn't end up at the free throw line very much.

The difficulty the Wizards have had containing point guards, the most recent being Brandon Jennings in Wednesday's 107-103 victory, isn't a John Wall problem.
