Do you feel like you deserve a max contract? That you’re a max guy?

 

I feel like I am. I do, definitely.

What say you?

No.

Max contracts are for team changing superstars. Players today man, priorities are backwards.

Win first, money second.

Huge potential, but until he reaches that potential and develop an effective jumpshot, he deserves nowhere near a max contract.

He's 22. Conceivably he could get a 3 year deal and prove whatever the hell he is and then find that question out

If he can develop a jumpshot then he'll have a chance at a max contract later in his career.

 

But now with so many versatile PG's, he should get 8-10 million at most..

He has changed the dynamic of the wizards when back from injury. But its too late in the season now and the fact he was injured so long was worrysome.

They should ban giving max. contracts to players from now on (except when they become multiple All Star / NBA First-Second Team) First Jennings, now Wall?

 

 

Dumbass owners can't even negotiate this.

Totally agree. Either he pisses off his best player and risks losing him, or he pays him way too much money. And we thought the Wizards couldn't get worse. Seriously John Wall, don't you wanna at least make the playoff some day?! If they spend all that money on you, how would they afford to put another star next to you?

That show contract wasn't enough?

or at least lead their team to the playoffs, which John Wall hasn't even done even more pathetically in that weaker Eastern Conference.

Still can't shoot a jumper to save his life. Not worth anywhere near the max.

He'll get one. Even if it means he leaves WAS and takes a shorter max deal frm another team.

I mean......him saying he's not a max contract player would really hurt himself when he's negotiating his next contract, whether he believes that or not.
