John Wall declares he is ready to be number one pick

Apr 22, 2010, 10:12 PM EST

John Wall announced what we all knew — he is declaring for the NBA Draft.

He will go number one overall (sorry Evan Turner). The only real suspense is who will be his agent, as Associated Press pointed out.

“If I get that No. 1 pick, it’s going to be a dream come true,” said Wall in the official press release. “But no matter where I go I’m going to be happy because I reached my goal.”

Wall led a very talented Kentucky this season and he brings a Derrick Rose-like game (but Wall may have a higher ceiling, he plays a more consistent game). In an NBA more and more dominated by quick perimeter players (because of the no hand checking rules) Wall could have a huge impact.

So May 18 in now officially the John Wall sweepstakes in Secaucus.
