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

Publish date:

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.”
