“He’s Still Got That Burst” Stephen Curry Feels Glad To Play Against John Wall Post 2 Years Return From Injury

Stephen Curry and John Wall

John Wall is rated very highly among NBA fanatics and players. This is because he has come back from many adversities during his career. The most notable of which was the ruptured Achilles tendon injury. Notable players like Stephen Curry and LeBron James have commented upon the unbelievable tenacity that Wall possesses.

He was rendered out of action for about two years after that injury. This season, however, Wall has come back stronger than ever and is putting decent performances for the Houston Rockets.

In the postgame press conference after the win against the Rockets, Stephen Curry spoke about how John Wall has stayed relevant in the league and is producing performances like no other.

He said, “We talked a little bit about it. He is in a much different situation than he was in DC. Coming off the injuries, trying to rebuild not only his game but the situation he is in.”

He continued, “He has some new teammates, new sets and all that. However, physically, he has still got that burst. It is kind of wild, he has always been quick. He seems to be shooting a lot better and a lot more confidently. You love to see that.”
