Flip Saunders: “John Wall Has A Photographic Memory”

from zagsblog.com

In addition to his supersonic speed and killer instinct, it turns out John Wall may also possess a photographic memory. So says Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders. “He’s got an extremely high basketball IQ and it seems like he’s got a photographic memory,” Saunders said before Wall put up 19 points, six assists and five rebounds in the Wizards’ 92-90 loss to the Knicks Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. Asked if Wall’s ability to remember plays was unique among NBA players, Saunders said: “It’s very uncommon. You still have guys in the sixth month of the season going through plays and they can’t still remember where they’re supposed to go. We show a play one time and he knows where’s everyone’s supposed to be.” The No. 1 overall pick out of Kentucky, Wall looked very impressive in his pro debut at the Garden, racing upcourt to score transition layups in three or four seconds at a time and directing the offense in the absence of Gilbert Arenas. The 6-foot-4 Wall is averaging 16.2 points, 8.0 assists and 2.2 steals, while committing 3.5 turnovers a game. “He’s probably one of the fastest, most physically gifted players that we’ll have in the league,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. D’Antoni added, “I hope he never learns to shoot real well, because then, he would be unguardable.”

I guess Calapari never found this out because he probably doesn’t have a playbook.
