Top 10: Best NBA players in 2014/15

10.John Wall, PG, Washington Wizards

He is one of those who are getting better after every season. Every year he is dramatically improving his 3-point shooting, disturbing the ball and also defending.

On December 8, 2014, Wall recorded 26 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals and a then career-high 17 assists in the 133-132 double-overtime win over the Boston Celtics. After the game Wall admitted the he had an extra motive. As he said, he dedicated the win to his close friend, six-year-old Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson, who had died of cancer earlier that day.

Wall is known for his blazing speed and explosive athleticism. He is using that ability to get to the rim and finish alone or pass the ball to the 3-pointer shooters, averaging 8,7 assist through his career. This season he reached the second-round series with Wizards  where Atlanta beat them in 6 games, but maybe it would be different if this guy wasn’t playing with his broken hand.
