John Wall might not win NBA Rookie of the Year as many expected, thanks to the emergence of Blake Griffin, but he is showing All-Star potential. If he continues to develop, that should make for some interesting debates in the next decade in a conference that already has two elite point guards -- Boston's Rajon Rondo and Chicago's Derrick Rose. In fact, he's been compared to Rose quite often, in part because of the similar ways they reached the league, and, like Rondo, he's a former Kentucky Wildcat with great speed, passing ability and defensive talent.
