08:10 AM ET 03.30 | Barely three years removed from being a top pick with a shaky jumper, Derrick Rose is a leading MVP candidate. John Wall, the point guard who was the top pick in last June's NBA draft after playing just one year for Calipari at Kentucky, is having a fine rookie campaign with the exception of a jumper that remains shaky. "My goal is to get to [Rose's] level and get better," Wall said. ... Wall vows he's going to come back next season with an improved jumper. "I try to shoot a thousand a day," Wall, averaging 16.3 points and 8.6 assists and shooting 40.5 percent overall, said of his offseason regiment. "But I want to do it more where I'm really jumping. [Last] summer, I wasn't really jumping on my jump shot. Just shooting a set shot. You can't do that in this league. Guys are fast and they're closing out. So you're going to see me work and I'm going to come back with an improved jumper next year."
