SHARE John Wall describes how he defends point guards like Derrick Rose

Washington Wizards guard John Wall had a career season last year in his fifth NBA season, which culminated with an All-Star selection. He was once schooled by some of the NBA’s greatest point guards, but now he’s starting to do a bit of the teaching himself.

Recently, Wall did a series a web-interviews with Red Bull and gave a few tid-bits on how to stop some of the best 1-guards in the league.

Although Derrick Rose is a mere shell of himself athletically, Wall mentions him as one of the toughest guards to lockdown in the NBA.

Now it’s kind of different. He’s more of a jump shooter now, but he’s still explosive and quick. Can get to the basket. And he’s one of the best finishers this game has seen at the point guard position.

Wall must have been modest in his assesment of Rose because that jump shooting acumen he spoke of just doesn’t exist for Rose in the early goings. But like the Thunder saw last thursday, Rose can heat up for 30 points at anytime.
