Championships are won in the off-season, and John Wall is taking those words to heart. Just four months after going under the knife to repair his ruptured Achilles, Wall is back in the gym firing off battle rope drills on an exercise ball.

Wall's working out at DBC Fitness in Miami with trainer David Alexander, who helped him get in shape last summer. Alexander has trained athletes such as Devin Booker, Dion Waiters, Von Miller and Jadaveon Clowney, so he's definitely in good hands. It should be noted though that Wall isn't working out the injured leg, rather doing general exercises to stay in shape.
Wall slipped and ruptured his Achilles in February, and he could miss the entire 2019-2020 NBA season. For a guard whose game is based on athletism, he'll need to return in the best shape possible.
The five-time All-Star appears determined to prove to his critics that he can come back as strong as ever. For someone who plays every game with a chip on his shoulder, this is nothing new.
