Flip Saunders Says John Wall Picked Up Bad Habits In Summer League

Washington Wizards head coach Flip Saunders feels that John Wall picked up too many bad habits in summer league play, according to CSN Washington.

“I’ve never been a proponent of [summer league play],” Saunders told CSN Washington after Monday’s practice. “I think you pick up too many bad habits and a lot of things are going to be very easy [are not].  I don’t think I saw a change all summer long.”

 Despite this, Saunders is optimistic that his best player can adjust back into a more structured NBA style of play.

“The positive thing is that when you’re the best player, you’re usually the one that can [help most],” Saunders said. “ You can help change things around as the coach can.”

Facing true NBA defenses this season, Wall has seen his scoring drop off from 16.4 points per game last year to 13.7 this season. Wall has also contributed 7.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Wizards who have stumbled to a 1-8 start this season.
