One of the best dunks of the year, if not the best.
0.22 min. | 4.30 user rating lyrics: Here he goes in transition, switch your defenders position Another stat for addition whether hes dunkin or dishin Opponents ankles are breakin meanwhile his jump shots are swishin Think you can stop him, youre wishing, once John Wall hits the ignition Ladies and Gentlemen John Wall has arrived Watch closely, you still will not believe your eyes Expect greatness and youll still be surprised He doesnt shoot, he scores. He doesnt jump, he flies. With more beast in him than a grizzly bear And more highlights than a strippers hair. No one wants to guard him, his defenders scared And when hes in the lane all they do is stare Prepare to bear witness to a shooting star How often does a center alley-oop to the point guard? Everybody wants a piece of John. His A-game is on, soon as the game comes on When he touches the ball, all youre left with is awe Watch a dunk by John Wall then try to pick up your jaw Take it to the hole or let the jump shot fall Not even Ronald Reagan could tear down this Wall Player of the year, other players struck with fear Now the number 2000 makes a Tar Heel shed a tear Roy Williams, what ya say? How come you wouldnt let him play? Would he not fit in at Carolina today? Hey, the great Wall of Kentucky might not be here to stay But one year is all you need for a banner anyway. John Wall dominates like the greats before On the road, at home, or on a neutral floor Dont even worry bout the end as long as Wall is in And its an automatic <b>...</b>
