This weekend, Hoop District was lucky enough to hang out with John Wall at The Citi John Wall Basketball ProCamp Presented by SunnyD held at Robinson Secondary School for over 200 kids from the DC area. Check out the sound clip and transcript below.
Any relationship with RG3 through Adidas?
No not really. You know, we’ll probably get that going, but I mean it’s tough throughout this whole summer with him being injured and trying to get himself back ready and to help his organization out with the Washington Redskins. So I just wish him the best of luck and I know he’s working really hard, I know him pretty well and I’m happy and excited for him and excited for the redskins.
How do you think the Redskins are looking this year?
I think they’ll do good. He’s (RG3) their leader, and I think it’s one thing they know, they believe and trust in him, they know they know he’ll do the perfect thing and I think they know the coaches and those guys, training staff, are doing a good job making sure he’s not rushing himself back and making sure he’s healthy. You know, that’s somebody you gotta make sure that he’s healthy for the rest of his career because that’s their guy.
How was working with Gary Payton this offseason?
I haven’t worked out with him yet I’ve just been talking to him – I talk to him nearly every day. That’s the thing, we’ve tried to find some time but I’ve been busy this summer traveling to China with Adidas, and the opportunity to get selected to go to USA basketball, and things like that, so you know, exciting – going to Vegas to watch my team play in the summer league.
Have any big plans this summer?
Nah man, just trying to get ready for the season.
Wizards championship this year?
I don’t know about championship but our main thing is just playoffs. We haven’t been there in four years – my first three years – so that’s why my main goal is just playoffs.
