"If they pick me, that's gonna mean a lot. It's a dream come true for me to play in the NBA. Washington is a great city, being that it's the capital city. Great fans, they've got a great hockey team, and they haven't had a star there in a while.* That's a place I'm wishing I can come in and take over."...
To be honest, I knew all the things that happened, but I wasn't on the team and I wasn't a part of the organization or anything like that, so I couldn't really talk about how things went," Wall said. "I know I read up on how [their core] got traded and things like that, but when I'm coming in, I'm trying to change it around, if that's who I go to. I want to help the organization change, help the team win games, just come in and do what I did at Kentucky."

* Take that, Gilbert!
