John Wall shows off portrait collection during Black History Month

John Wall shows off portrait collection during Black History Month

February is Black History Month and Wizards star point guard John Wall is celebrating with a stunning portrait collection in his home. 

On Wednesday, Wall posted multiple photos on Instagram featuring portraits of, "some of the most powerful African Americans who have and continue to pave the way."

The first photo contains portraits of Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks and Angela Davis, who are then followed by Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali and Martin Luther King Jr. 

After that, you'll find portraits of musical artists Biggie Smalls, Lil Wayne, Tupac Shakur and Nipsey Hussle. 

Wall's portrait collection was definitely well-received among a few teammates. Bradley Beal and Admiral Schofield are among those in the comment section on Wall's post.

Wizards' Greatest Hits: How to watch Wizards 2019 London miracle victory over the New York Knicks

Wizards' Greatest Hits: How to watch Wizards 2019 London miracle victory over the New York Knicks

The next edition of NBC Sports Washington's Wizards' Greatest Hits travels back in time to the first time the Wizards won a regular season game overseas.

Down by 19 in the first half, Knicks' Luke Kornet’s 14 points and Damyean Dotson’s 13 led New York to an early lead. But, the team's competitive fire is the reason they were capable of fighting back and coming within striking distance. 

"We're a competitive team," Beal said. "Win, lose, or draw, we stick together. We keep our heads high, we continue to get better. We're right here in the playoff hunt, which is where we want to be."

Wizards center Thomas Bryant capped off an impressive comeback with a game-winning basket on a goaltend with 0.4 seconds remaining. The Wizards trailed by a point after forcing their ninth turnover of the fourth quarter with 3.3 seconds left. Bradley Beal, who had 26 points in the game, gathered the in-bounds pass out of the timeout and found Bryant cutting to the rim.

Report: Hall of Fame enshrinement for Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan delayed until 2021

Report: Hall of Fame enshrinement for Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan delayed until 2021

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) -- Basketball Hall of Fame chairman Jerry Colangelo told ESPN that the enshrinement ceremony for Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and five others will be delayed until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The ceremony was to have taken place in Springfield on Aug. 29. Colangelo told ESPN that the event will be moved until the spring of 2021.

Colangelo did not respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press. There was no immediate announcement from the Hall of Fame about the rescheduling plan.

"We're definitely canceling," Colangelo told ESPN. "It's going to have to be the first quarter of next year. We'll meet in a couple of weeks and look at the options of how and when and where."

Bryant, Garnett and Duncan all got into the Hall in their first year as finalists, as did WNBA great Tamika Catchings. The other members of the Class of 2020 were two-time NBA champion coach Rudy Tomjanovich, longtime Baylor women's coach Kim Mulkey, 1,000-game winner Barbara Stevens of Bentley and three-time Final Four coach Eddie Sutton -- who died this past weekend.
