Today is Labor Day, a national holiday celebrating the economic and social achievements of American workers. However, today is also a very special day for a very special somebody; that somebody being John Wall, the #1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
Today, Wall will celebrate his 20th birthday and oh what a wonderful 19 years he has had. Just think, before turning 20, Wall was the focal point of a major college program, earning him the first overall selection in June’s draft by the Washington Wizards, and he signed a 5 year $25 million deal with Reebok. Let’s just say his hard work has paid off up to this point.
So what was Wall’s first tweet on his birthday you ask?
Nothing too exciting, but I am sure he was bombarded by birthday wishes he had to respond to.
Hopefully the Washington Wizards and Washington, D.C. have big plans for Wall’s 20th birthday celebration bash. We’ll keep you posted throughout the day on Twitter (@therookiewall) if we learn of any birthday festivities taking place.
