Who is faster: Russell Westbrook or John Wall? Eric Maynor doesn’t know.

Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - APRIL 24: Russell Westbrook #0 of the Oklahoma City Thunder handles the ball guarded by Patrick Beverley #12 of the Houston Rockets during the first half of Game Two of the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at Chesapeake Energy Arena on April 24, 2013 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Eric Maynor spent most of his last four seasons in the NBA in Oklahoma City, where he was the backup point guard to the blur that is Russell Westbrook.

This summer he is in Washington D.C., where he signed with the Wizards and is the backup point guard to the blur that is John Wall.

So who is faster, Westbrook or Wall?

Maynor doesn’t know, he told J. Michael of CSNWashington.com.

“I was telling somebody the other day, I’m trying to figure out who’s faster,” Maynor said of Wall vs. Russell Westbrook.

“I need to know who’s faster between those two because they’re both so fast, it’s crazy,” Maynor said.


Technically, right at this moment I’d take Wall because he’s healthy and Westbrook is still recovering from knee surgery. But what about when both are healthy? This is the kind of information we’re going to be able to get from the high-tech Sports VU cameras going in NBA Arenas this season. Last season the guy who was the fastest with the ball they recorded — Tony Parker.

Between Wall and Westbrook, well, at the Draft Combine ¾ court sprint Wall finished in 3.05 seconds and Westbrook 3.08. That’s a virtual dead heat.

If Maynor doesn’t know, nobody does.
