John Wall reportedly stares down David Falk after hitting clutch shot (Video)

John WallJohn 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.

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.

Agent David Falk apologizes for ripping John Wall

John WallAgent David Falk, who is best known for representing Michael Jordan throughout the legend’s NBA career, apologized Thursday for ripping Washington Wizards guard John Wall in an article that appeared in The Washington Post Thursday.

Matters began on Sunday when The Post’s Mike Wise wrote a column in which he was supportive of Wall. The theme was that the expectations of being the No. 1 overall pick were too great for Wall, and that the young point guard has been playing well since returning from injury this season.

Though Wise was supportive of Wall, his column contained this paragraph expressing a dissenting opinion:

“A prominent NBA agent, whom I’ll save from embarrassment here, told me a year ago the Wizards needed to unload Wall before the rest of the league found out he didn’t have trade value.”

The agent was Falk, who called Wise on Monday to discuss the Wizards and go off on Wall — on the record.

“I’m going to save you from embarrassment,” Falk told Wise. “You guys are in dreamland. Because this team [stinks] so bad you guys want John Wall to be someone he will never be.”

Falk continued to criticize Wall, saying the youngster doesn’t have a feel for the game.

Elton Brand and David Falk Deceitful, Had Philly in Mind Last Year

Elton Brand 76ersGood thing I didn’t jump to any conclusions about the Clippers being contenders once they agreed to a deal with Baron Davis last week, given the fact that, you know, Elton Brand had opted out and wasn’t a lock to return to the team. Why was it such a foregone conclusion that Brand would be back to team up with Baron? Because Brand said he intended to stay with the Clips. Silly me, what was I thinking believing an honest, former Joe Dumars Sportsmanship Award winner like Elton Brand? Look, I don’t blame the guy for leaving the Clippers — they’re not a desirable organization to play for. Nor do I blame him for chasing the money. I just think it was pretty rotten that both he and his agent deceived the public and the fans. Take for instance this quote from Brand at his introductory press conference in Philadelphia on Wednesday:

“My intention was to try to work out something with the Clippers. That was the idea and that was the goal. We were left with opportunities to have to explore because we were left with an ultimatum. My agent David Falk spoke with them directly and they couldn’t come together with an agreement. That’s when Mr. Stefanski and another team brought in some great offers and we had to look at the entire picture.”

The ultimatum to which he refers is that the Clippers supposedly laid out a $70 million offer firm, and that was it. But once offers from the Warriors and Sixers came in at higher amounts, the Clippers supposedly upped their offer to re-sign Brand. Check out what David Falk had to say.
