Wonder Wall

When Kentucky and Mississippi face off in Lexington Tuesday, the Nets will have two scouts in the stands. Twenty other NBA teams will be represented, too. There'll be other talent on the court that night, but the focus will be John Wall, who's become a cult figure in college basketball and the hope of Nets fans everywhere. It's not just his skills (and his 43.5" vertical leap) that has people talking. It's his personal story.
