Evaluating John Wall’s torso

An unflattering picture of a shirtless John Wall started circulating on Twitter today, prompting fans to grab their torches, abandoned after the “Fat Ovi” and “Fat Grossman” crises of 2011, with cries of “Fat John Wall.”







You guys are mean. 

But much like the accusations against Ovi and Grossman, it seems that Wall was the victim of an unfortunate camera angle. These screengrabs, taken by @gpilkertone, tell a different story. One of hope and good nutrition. Of health, proper form and tummy muscles. 

Although I’m pretty sure Wall will never ever again take his shirt off in public. The internet ruins everything.
