With All-Star reserves set to be announced on Thursday night, John Wall would like to offer his case for teammate Bradley Beal to make it for the third time.

Wall appeared on the Wizards Talk podcast with Chris Miller in a wide-ranging interview set to be released Feb. 14, during All-Star weekend. He explained how Beal has continued to improve his game to the point where he should be a no-brainer for the annual showcase.

"The way he sees the game now [is different]. I think he's always been a scorer. He just scored even without putting the ball on the floor. People thought he was just a spot-up shooter, but now he's creating plays off the dribble. He's scoring at every level," Wall said.

"It's dope for me to see. If he's not an All-Star, I don't know what to tell people."

Wall went on to share his dislike for the All-Star voting system. He would love to see the player vote carry more weight than those of the media and fans. The current system has fan voting account for half, while the media and players each account for 25 percent. Wall wants the players to make up 50 percent and the media and fans to split the rest.

"As a player, you know what it's like to guard that person. You know what you have to deal with," he said.

The fan vote is particularly tough for Wizards players, Wall believes, because of their lack of national TV games.

"I think if you gave us 9-to-10 [national] TV games, or 15 [national] TV games before All-Star, fans will get to see who we are. Don't get me wrong. Trae Young's a heck of a talent. I think that's why his fan votes are so high because they got to see him on TV a lot before All-Star votes went," Wall said.

 

Wall goes into more depth on how he would change the voting system and why on the podcast. He also opens up on a variety of subjects including his injury rehab and the passing of his mother. Stay tuned for the full podcast.
