John Wall’s agent responds to David Falk

John Wall chose not to address agent David Falk’s comments to The Washington Post that Wall lacked the “feel for the game” and may never develop into an elite point guard for the Wizards to build around. But that didn’t mean that Wall’s agent, Dan Fegan, was going to accept the critique without response.

Falk has since apologized to Wall and the Wizards organization for allowing his opinions to be aired in a public forum. But Fegan, one of the NBA’s most powerful agents, was still furious over what Falk said about his client late Wednesday night and called to address the situation.

“David Falk’s rant about John Wall was uneducated, unsophisticated and immature. It proved the adage that one can grow old without ever growing up,” Fegan said. “I’m relieved David had the sense to apologize for his remarks but that doesn’t change the fact that he publicly disparaged a classy young man and a great young player. I have no further comment on what David said.”
