John Wall, Blake Griffin, Landry Fields, and Wesley Johnson appeared on NBATV’s Rookie Roundtable Tuesday night at 6 PM. The Roundtable, filmed during all-star weekend in Los Angeles, features the the four rookies discussing their transition to the NBA and reflecting on their first season in the league.
Here are a few quotes from the rookie discussions:
John Wall on being the number 1 pick: “Everybody expects so much from you and expects you to be this spectacular player and have the biggest numbers every night.”
Landry Fields on taking his first shot: “I was nervous my first game, I’m not gonna lie. That first shot, I was shaking all the way up.”
Wesley Johnson on being blocked from behind by LeBron James: “I was on a break and LeBron was trailing me. I knew he was behind me, that’s the thing, but dang.”
John Wall on watching Blake Griffin’s highlights: “After your game…you know if the Clippers are playing…you’re checking your phone or you run into your house [to check ESPN] because you know something is going to happen.”
Mark Jackson on the 2010 rookie class: “This is as good as a rookie class I think this league has every seen.”
