John Wall can pinpoint that epiphany, the very galvanizing moment in his life that wiped away the past, and made the future seem possible. Curled up and cramped in a two-door Mercedes on an 18-hour round trip trek to Chicago, Wall wore a tag he was trying desperately to shed as a rising high school junior for Word of God High School in Raleigh, N.C. Wall was considered petulant. An all-world talent with a quick temper trigger that often got in the way of his potential.
