John Wall becomes first wildcat taken No. 1 overall

The Washington Wizards have selected John Wall
with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.
The SEC player of the year is the first Kentucky player ever
chosen first overall. He goes to a Washington team hoping to
quickly bounce back after a disastrous season that included Gilbert
Arenas' season-ending suspension for bringing guns into the team
locker room.
Wall could replace Arenas as the Wizards' point guard, or
perhaps play alongside him in a potential high-scoring backcourt.
After his name was announced to begin Thursday's draft, Wall
hugged family members and donned a blue Wizards cap before climbing
onto the stage to shake commissioner David Stern's hand.
