01:36 PM ET 03.24 | Third-year pro John Wall is still learning lessons. Spending a single year in college, that's fair enough. Yet with a potential max contract on deck, the Washington Wizards are hoping for their young point guard to grow up a little more quickly. On Saturday, a learning point came when Wall was ejected for picking up a second technical foul during a game with the Golden State Warriors. Frustrated by physical hits put on him by Warriors guard Klay Thompson, Wall lost his cool and began jawing to earn him a technical. This came after he had picked up a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing with a referee. "When you get an early technical. You can't get into anything, talking on the floor," coach Randy Wittman told the Washington Post. "He's got to learn that. Hopefully, it's a lesson."

John Wall reminds me of Kenyon Martin.

Smaller version of his ex team mate Cousins. Bad temper and bad attitude. Klay was killing him, he was over klay's body and in his space. Lost the match up and also lost his team the game.

Or he has hit the Wall in his marathon attempt to get a max contract.
