Success didn't always come easy for John Wall. Once upon a time, he was a nobody from North Carolina who got cut from his high school team and just wanted a chance to play. In this animated short, Wall and his friends and family provide an oral history of sorts about his long road to the NBA. It's pretty crazy to see how he was able to realize his potential. Now, can he really turn the Wizards into something other than the laughinstock of the league? That movie is still in production.
