Tuesday March 6th, 2012

Washington Wizards guard John Wall called out his teammates yesterday following their 120-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors. The second-year point guard believes his team needs to get serious, according to the Washington Times.

"We lost the game before we went on the court," Wall told the Times.  "Too much joking in the locker room, too much joking through warm-ups."

Wall contributed 20 points and 14 assists in the Wizards’ loss. For Washington it was their 29th loss of the season, and the seventh in their last eight games. At 8-29, they currently have the second worst record in the NBA.

Wall, the former No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft, also called out his teammates for selfish play earlier this season.

Wall told the Washington Post.
