Washington Wizards point guard John Wall says he feels like he is viewed as a No. 1 pick who has not accomplished anything in the league, according to Chris Miller of CSN Washington.

Wall said he will likely not get respect for his on-court accomplishments until he has some postseason success.

I think they still still see me as a skinny kid from Kentucky that got drafted No. 1, that hasn’t done nothing or proven nothing in this league. I think just making this first All-Star Game still doesn’t get me a nod. ... Until I make it to the playoffs and win a series and keep improving, I haven’t done nothing in this league.

The fourth-year player also credited his offseason workouts with Kevin Durant and Kevin Love for helping him improve his game to an All-Star level. Wall is currently averaging 20.1 points and 8.5 assists per game this season while leading the Wizards to an above-.500 record for the first time in his career.
