John Wall played the role of hero in the Washington Wizards’ win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night, nailing a clutch jumper to put his team up three points with 4.4 seconds remaining in the game. The shot forced the Sixers to have to attempt a three-pointer to tie, which they were unable to convert.
After hitting the shot, Wall appeared to be giving someone in the stands the death stare. According to several people who were in attendance, the person he was grilling was David Falk.
John Wall just hit that huge shot in front of David Falk who had some “non-positive” things to say about him recently #takethat

If you remember, Falk is the agent who ripped Wall a few weeks ago and said the Wizards want him to be someone he will never be. Falk, who is best known for representing Michael Jordan during his NBA career, later apologized for publicly criticizing the former first overall pick.
It would appear that Wall hasn’t forgiven him. Perhaps the next time he hits a clutch shot at the end of the game he should find Stan Van Gundy, who had some similar things to say about Wall a while back, and stare him down. Hey, whatever works.
