The official review of John Wall’s 2011 preseason debut was not kind, at least if the official reviewer was Flip Saunders.
“Terrible,” Saunders said of Wall. “He didn’t play with the same aggressiveness, passion.”
Now, I didn’t watch the preseason opener — don’t judge me — but I did see this highlight-reel dunk, which seemed to be both aggressive and passionate. So there were at least 15 good seconds in there.
The fellow on the receiving end was Philadelphia’s Craig Brackins.
