John Wall knows all about pressure. Last season's No. 1 pick, Wall became the face of the Washington Wizards before his first day in uniform. In his second season, he found himself in the role of mentor to another rookie point guard, former Butler star Shelvin Mack.
Both players had a steep learning curve, and thanks to the lockout, a short window to do it in. Fortunately for Mack, there was at least one thing he already did better than Wall.
"I'm better at video games than he is," Mack said. "He'd probably say he is, but I think it's me."
