John Wall supports televising NBA All-Star draft: ‘If they ain’t pick you, they ain’t pick you’
The NBA is reportedly leaning toward not televising the All-Star draft – which defeats the entire purpose of the attention-generating format change, but protects the feelings of players involved.
LeBron James said he’s cool with televising it. But he’ll probably lead the Eastern Conference in fan voting and would therefore be a captain making the selections.
How does someone likely headed to the pool of draftees feel about it?
Wizards guard John Wall, via Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington:
It’s worth noting that most, if not all players, would respond this way when asked publicly. Those that oppose televising the draft want to avoid an embarrassing outcome. Admitting that beforehand would be self-defeating.
But I’m with what Wall said. Televise the draft. It’d be great entertainment. These grown men can handle it.
