handling all the attention
Before the game, Wall praised Ball for being mature but also said his father could be "a Ahkello Witherspoon Authentic Jersey gift and a curse because he's putting the pressure on him but he don't have to guard them and play against him."
After the game, a diplomatic Wall praised the rookie for handling all the attention and admitted that LaVar Ball's outspoken act is something new for opposing players to deal with.
"He's a quiet kid who doesn't say too much," Wall told ESPN's Jeff Goodman. "He's been dealing with it [his father's outspoken comments] his whole life. It doesn't bother him. It's just new to everybody else. He's very mature for his age.
"He can pass, can score the ball -- he just wasn't making shots tonight. We both wanted to play better."
While LaVar's comments have made Ball a target in his first four games as the Clippers' Patrick Beverley and Wall have attested to, Wizards head coach Scott Brooks said people are missing the real point with LaVar and his son.
"I don't have no problem with it," Brooks said before the game. "I was the youngest of seven, my dad left when I was two. My mom raised all of us on her own and as you are growing up in that situation, you have some anger and some pissed off moments and some sadness but you have to figure out ways to be happy and proud and continue Authentic Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey to fight and he has a father and mother that supports him.
"To me, I think everybody is missing the boat," Brooks continued. "Does he say some crazy things? Does he really believe he can beat Michael Jordan in a one-on-one? No. But I guarantee over dinner, his sons are killing him for saying things like that and are having fun. To me, laughter is an important part of life. They get it. they probably laugh a lot at the dinner table and probably a lot of them are laughing at all of us."
Gortat Ahkello Witherspoon Authentic Jersey thought the Wizards and Wall would have the last laugh when he tweeted in response to LaVar's guarantee, "man.....pleaseeeeee!!!
JohnWall will torture him for 48min" followed by four crying/laughing emojis.
Washington (3-1) led by 10 with 7:08 remaining in regulation but the Wizards center missed a driving dunk with Ball contesting that helped turn the momentum. Bradley Beal (28 points) later missed a free throw with 12.1 seconds left which allowed Brandon Ingram (19 points and 10 rebounds) to send the game to overtime with a tip-in off his own missWhile Ball said he will start making the wide open perimeter shots he's missing -- he's shooting 5-for-24 overall and 0-for-10 from 3 in the last two games -- the rookie won't get into any war of words with other opposing players who decide to take shots at him.
The rookie knows he has a target on his back, mostly from his father's comments, but he's used to dealing with what comes with it.
"Coming in, I already knew everybody was going to come at me like that," Ball told ESPN's Ryan Ruocco in a pregame interview. "So I don't really pay it any mind. I'm not going to get into any Twitter war. I'm going to go out there and help my team."
"I'm not saying anything, and I'm not retaliating," added Ball, who has 32 assists in his last three games. "It doesn't affect me in any type of way, I don't think. I just go out there and play. It's the NBA, so guys should want to come at me every night. I have no problem with it. So I just go out there, like I said, and play
