John Wall calls JJ Barea a ‘little midget’
Washington Wizards guard John Wall got a bit personal with Dallas Mavericks counterpart JJ Barea after their game on Monday night.
Following the Wizards’ embarrassing 98-75 loss to the Mavs, Wall called the six-foot Barea “a little midget,” prompting the latter to fire back at him. Here is what they had to say about each other, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
John Wall called JJ Barea “just a little midget trying to get mad.” Barea responds by saying he finally has someone in the NBA he doesn’t like. “I don’t think his teammates like him, either.”

For reference, Wall and Barea had some words for each other after the whistle on a play in the fourth quarter when the game had already been decided.
The Wizards, who fell to 26-21 with the loss, have had notable internal issues lately, and it’s obvious that Wall’s frustration got the best of him on Monday.
