Ariza: Beal ‘Can Easily Get 20,000 Points in This League’

Ariza: John Wall Has Things He ‘Needs to Work On’

John Wall has clearly proved his worth to the Wizards in the month he’s been back from injury, but he still has to prove himself to the rest of the league if he’d like to be considered a premier point guard in the NBA. Ariza explained to Holden and Danny what Wall must to do break through to that next level.
