John Wall responds to his #31 ranking in SI's Top 100 NBA players

Wednesday September 17th, 2014

Washington Wizards guard John Wall took to Twitter on Tuesday to voice his apparent displeasure over Sports Illustrated's comprehensive ranking of the Top 100 players in the NBA, a list which featured Wall as the 31st best player in the league. 

After retweeting SI's Ben Golliver's posting of the rankings, Wall exclaimed in a tweet "#31 !!"

After writing another cryptic tweet about "motivation," he took exception to Sports Illustrated's subsequent apology. 

While Golliver did mention Wall's league-leading turnover propensity, he also noted Wall's lightening quick speed, elite offensive efficiency and a season "worthy of a No. 1 pick."

No hard feelings, John?
