Why does John Wall hate him and who is he?


He is Kelly Oubre, who the Wiz traded to the Suns so that John Wall's boy, Trevor Ariza, could come back to Washington.

Does John Wall hate Kelly Oubre any more than John Wall hates people in general, which is kind of a lot? Who knows. Probably only John Wall and Kelly Oubre and maybe a few teammates/coaches. The Wiz did trade him, before Wall's rapid descent to internet meme/punchline this season, for a 33 year-old in steep decline who has now played for 7 teams (two of them twice) in 15 years, so, y'know, John Wall probably didn't wake up every morning like "I can't wait to get to work and see Oubre!"

Even if John Wall was mathematically exactly neutral on Oubre: like 50.00000000000000000 to 50.00000000000000000 take him or leave him, the chant is utterly hilarious and Oubre shot 1/6 from the stripe that night in a game that the Pacers won by THIRTY FOUR points and didn't need to gain any particular advantage on Kelly Oubre foul shots, which makes the whole thing just that much more interesting and hilarious and awesome and it's really another bg plug of tobacco for the The NBA Sucks Until May crowd to insert in their pipe and smoke away on.

Good to see Charlotte doing nothing and ensuring Kemba ends up a Knick after the season.

That's probably a bigger fear among NYK fans than it is CHA fans: that they make these moves, free up cap space for two max guys, and end up with something underwhelming like Kemba + Butler on max deals that handicap the franchise, even though they hold Knox/DSJ/Whatever stud they draft in the top 4 this year.

Not sure how a bad sports talk host from Phoenix has this scoop, but that Boston offer is obviously a million times better.

Niko to the Bucks for Jason Smith, Stanley Johnson and four 2nds. The most interesting of those are the Wizards in 2020 and 2021.

I’ll be rooting for the Bucks in the playoffs.
