John Wall has Blake Griffin beaten in one area

(Jonathan Newton / The Washington Post)
John Wall isn’t going to win the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award, a fact that rankles those who call Blake Griffin a “redshirt rookie.”

But this is Washington, where we measure success by jersey sales. And that is where Wall wins the battle of the rookies, finishing 10th in sales announced by the NBA. The Kia vaulter comes in at 11, but he’s got Wall beat in the “Blake Like Me” department.
