07:10 AM ET 07.16 | At this point, the question may not be when, but how much. The Wizards have begun talking with John Wall's agent, Dan Fegan, regarding an extension before the regular season, CSN Washington has learned. Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in 2010, is eligible for up to a four-year, max contract with the Wizards in addition to the final year remaining on his deal that will pay him $7.45 million next season. If he's named the franchise's designated player, Wall can get five years. If the Wizards cannot reach an agreement with him by Oct. 30, talks will have to be tabled until after the 2013-14 regular season. Despite missing the first 33 games because of a stress injury to his left knee last season, Wall had his best statistical output.

the guys needs to mature. don't like his attitude. injury prone. NOT the types of things i would want from my 'franchise' player to build around for years to come. somehow i get the odd feeling that had he not been picked #1, the decision of not giving him max would be somewhat easier.

Agreed. He's their best player but the immaturity is troubling because I don't see anybody near the team whom he will let mentor him. Not sure if he's the guy to lead them out of lottery land and deep into the playoffs. But, they are getting closer to the palyoffs, if for no other reason than that least Ainge blew up the Celtics.

I don't get the questioning of his maturity. What has he done that was immature? I know he did the Dougie one time but there's a lot of superstars that dances...

Personally I'm not a big fan, but if the Wizards have decided he is the future, they might as well lock him down and move on to new business.

I agree- I don't recall any glaring immaturity or foot in mouth issues that arose with him lately

Wall is a tremendous asset for the Wizards and not sure if the immaturity talk was about him not being a leader / constantly playing hero ball 1 on 5 (His only knock) or extracurricular activities. I think the former more than the latter.

A Wall Is Only As Strong As Its Foundation, Bro.

Yuup, he has been improving. He proved that the Wizards really need him when he came back and the team was playing a lot better.

QUOTE(#18):

Finally one of the racists white women came forward and said exactly what I knew happen in that court and courts all over America. She believed Zimmerman's story and totally disregarded the evidence. Which means she didn't follow the law. Two witnesses Jeanel and George, and one didn't even take the stand. Now why is it that I knew they would believe the white guy over the Black woman, totally ignoring other evidence? Like I said, even if there was a video tape, those white women were still going to let GZ go, just like they did in Simi Valley.

I don't know about the white/black thing, but that juror easily contradicted herself on Anderson 360. She said GZ is a man with a "great heart" and "only seeks to help people". Anderson asks if she would be her community safe guard guy, then she backs off and says "only if he doesn't go over board!!!". WTF? Which means he DID go overboard?

The entire case to me doesn't smell racism, but a bad stink of the justice system. Poorly worded laws, and poorly investigated, documented and conducted. Doesn't bode well for a "leader of the free world" country.
