#5: John Wall – Skill or Luck?

John Wall is quick, aggressive and sometimes, borderline Lucky. We're not sure if this was attributed to his level of Skill or just pure Luck. You tell us! Wall gets fouled and just lobs the ball to the rim as he's looking at the opposite side of the court. Impressive? Lucky? You make the call.
