John Wall is one of the best point guards in the NBA. His vision is sublime. His speed is uncanny. His instincts and toughness and ability to make teammates better can't be questioned.
So, heading into next season, what new should the Washington Wizards expect from the face of their franchise? How about he leads the NBA in assists? The FanSided blog Wiz of Awes thinks it's possible:
Wall averaged 10.0 assists per game last season. Only Chris Paul averaged more. And only Paul and Russell Westbrook tallied a higher assist percentage.
It's reasonable to think Wall can surpass Paul this season, especially now that he's surrounded by several reliable three-point shooters.
