TBT: The Great Wall

John Wall levitates toward the goal on a fast break dunk against Austin Peay.

When John Wall first came on the scene he was fresh out of High School and was part of Calipari's first UK crop that would unveil his "Dribble Drive" offense to the BBN. Along with Patrick Patterson, Demarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe, the quartet dazzled fans with a high energy season that seemed to end too soon.

Wall would be the #1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, a feat that had somehow escaped Kentucky's basketball bucket list. While playing at Kentucky Wall used his keen skills as a point guard to slash through defenses to the basket for a score or foul. After scoring or being fouled en route to the basket he would often times salute the crowd.
