John Wall Dunks After Going Coast to Coast in Four Dribbles, Does Not Need Teammates

Actually, seeing as how the Wizards were down by 25 points in the first quarter before his dunk, the answer is: yes. He needs teammates a lot right now.

John Wall is an undeniably efficient player, averaging 0.63 points for every minute he was on the court with the Washington Wizards this past regular season. His stat line also translates to roughly 0.29 assists per minute, which is pretty generous. So does he really need teammates to win basketball games?

In a show of wild efficiency in Game 3, John Wall took the ball from one baseline to the next, absolutely disregarding the Hawks's sense of dignity with a behind-the-back, and rose up for an authoritative one-handed dunk. It was enough to send Atlanta into group therapy until next season. And how did he do it? With only four dunks, and not even a glance to an outlet player. So does he need those teammates? Seeing as how the Wizards were down by 25 points in the first quarter before his dunk, the answer is: yes. He needs teammates a lot right now.
