It has been well over a full year since we last saw John Wall on the basketball court. This was during the 2020-21 campaign with the Houston Rockets before the five-time All-Star suffered another major injury that cost him the entirety of last season. Now with the Los Angeles Clippers, Wall is hoping to resurrect his career.
The LA Clippers are expected to enter the 2022-23 NBA season as one of the frontrunners for the NBA Championship. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George both expected back healthy for the start of the season, many have high expectations for the Clippers again. That includes Metta Sandiford-Artest.
While Paul George is under contract with the LA Clippers until 2024, with a player option for the 2024-25 season, recent history has shown long-term contracts to mean nothing other than guaranteed money. With superstar players frequently forcing their way to other teams, even at the beginning of long-term deals, long-term contracts no longer guarantee long-term partnerships.
