Watch: Washington Wizards star John Wall shows off speed in sparring session

John Wall

John Wall is arguably the hardest-working man in basketball—and the season ended two months ago.

The Washington Wizards star enjoyed a busy regular season in which he played the second-most minutes per game among point guards (36.4), right behind Kyle Lowry. He logged more assists per game than any other point guard (10.7), more overall assists than any player not named James Harden, and ranked just behind Russell Westbrook in double-doubles at the position (50). Wall’s season ended after he led the Wizards just a single game shy of the Eastern Conference Finals.


Wall’s immensely successful season culminated in mid-July when he was awarded a four-year, $170 million contract to remain at the helm of the Washington offense. 

Despite becoming a very rich man, Wall hasn’t rested on his laurels this offseason. A 15-second clip of Wall showing off with some impossibly crisp no-look passing manifested itself in the now-viral "John Wall challenge." A new documentary following Wall’s hectic offseason showcases his intense training regimen—one that includes resistance-band running, cycling, and, as seen in his latest Instagram video, some sparring:


Wish you well as you can tell this upcoming year I’m bringing hell…#WallWay #5Deep #BYB !!

Just two months into the NBA offseason, Wall looks as prepared as anyone going into 2018.
