Following a a 103-80 loss to the Thunder Wednesday night, John Wall was asked if he thought Russell Westbrook was the league’s fastest player. The third-year-point guard didn’t think twice before insisting he himself is the NBA’s fastest player.
According to John Rohde, The Oklahoman:
“No, I’m going to say myself..”
Wall wouldn’t even say for certain that Westbrook was the league’s second-fastest player.
“It’s tough man…There’s a couple fast guys in this league. He (Westbrook) is up there, Derrick (Rose) is up there, when he’s healthy. Mike Conley’s pretty quick. There’s a couple guys. Ty Lawson’s quick. So there’s a lot of guys, but I put myself first.”
