John Wall Shuts Down The Celtics: 'Don't Come To My City Wearing All Black'

D.C. has a new sports hero and fans are losing it.

Published May 13, 2017

During Game 7 between the Boston Celtics and the Washingon Wizards, Wizards point guard John Wall brought the technique and theatrics to the court, shooting a dagger 3-pointer.

However, after the amazing play, the NBA star knew exactly what he wanted to say to the opposing team's decision to arrive to the Verizon Center donning all black for Game 6.

"I ain't going home [for the playoffs]," he said. "Don't come to my city, wearing all black, talking about it's a funeral."

Take a look at the clip, below:

  1. The icy response from Wall seemed to foreshadow the favorable outcome for the Wizards as this is the deepest the team has ever been into the playoffs, ever.

    According to Fox Sports, however, despite Wall's words, the Celtics claim the all Black attire was just a "wacky coincidence," and they never mentioned a funeral.

    Needless to say, the night belonged to Wall as the Wizards took home the victory, and social media seemed to agree with this sentiment as they created a slew of memes and posted their own comments about the now viral events.
