John Wall gets Taken-style phone call from Liam Neeson

Tuesday December 16th, 2014

John Wall gets a phone call from a very determined Liam Neeson in a new commercial hyping up the Christmas Day matchup between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks.

Neeson is channeling his famous Taken monologue as he tells Wall to be on the lookout for the Knicks and their "very particular set of skills."

Wall seems unfazed by the threats, perhaps because not even Liam Neeson can make the 5-21 Knicks seem intimidating.
