10 Questions With...John Wall

Though much of the world first discovered Washington Wizards point guard John Wall when he did the Dougie on court before his professional debut, real hoopheads have known about 2010’s No. 1 overall draft pick since he first made waves at the Reebok Basketball Breakout Challenge. The Breakout Challenge is an event where unranked basketball players without access to traditional opportunities — players just like Wall was in 2007 — can showcase their talents for hundreds of college coaches and earn a chance to further their careers based solely on their basketball skill. Together with Reebok, Wall is bringing back the Breakout Challenge this summer to help other kids get the same chance to prove themselves that he himself once had. We know that Wall can take on the Breakout Challenge, but what about the challenge of our 10 Questions? Keep reading to find out.
