Wall has spent the past two seasons, primarily on the sidelines, watching the Houston Rockets build their young core without him. But before that, he was the face of the Wizards franchise.

Wall isn’t hiding the fact that he is hoping to get a standing ovation from the Wizards faithful in his first game playing in front of them as an opponent. Wall helped the Wizards develop into a strong playoff contender during his time there, and his partnership with Bradley Beal, who is still in Washington, in the backcourt was one of the most exciting partnerships in the league.

Wall hasn’t been shy in discussing his grueling return to the court after such a long time away from it, and it will likely result in fans all across the NBA being excited to see Wall playing basketball this season.

While Wall couldn’t bring a title to Washington, it wasn’t exactly his fault. He should receive a warm welcome on his return to Washington, and it will be exciting to see him return to the place where he made a name for himself. It will be one of those key milestones for Wall, and it will certainly feel good for him to return to the place where his career started, and hopefully, it will result in him getting a standing ovation from the home fans.
