The NBA’s most unexpected and overlooked, if not undeserving, Most Valuable Player candidate this season has had perhaps the most unusual of career arcs.

After all, it was just a few years ago that John Wall was being called out, condemned and dismissed, the subject of trade requests from a Washington Wizards season ticket holder. Of course, that was not unusual with season ticket holders after a third Washington sub-30 win season and out of the playoffs, all with Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Fans spend most of every NBA season if their teams are stumbling suggesting pretty much everyone be traded or fired.
