In case you haven’t heard by now, John Wall had one of the most epic Friday nights in history. So epic, in fact, that people are now totally down for the Wizards point guard to run for president.
In Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards, not only did wall shut down critics by making a phenomenal game-winning shot, but he gave one hell of a post-game interview, too.
With the playoffs on the line, Wall made jaws drop by sinking a three-pointer with 3.5 seconds left in the game, securing a last-minute 92-91 win to force a Game 7.
Needless to say, fans freaked out alongside Wall and the Wizards.

And for some, the shot was so perfect that they felt the Washington player deserves to be president, or at the very least, America’s new FBI Director.
Tonight, John Wall became President.

In a post-game interview, Wall assured everyone he’s not ready to give up and shared his thoughts on the Celtics’ morbid dress code.
“I ain’t going home. They don’t come to my city, wearing all black talking about how it’s a funeral. We worked too hard for this,” he said.
Game 7 will go down on May 15, on the Celtics home court, TD Garden. It’s going to be lit. 🔥
