As the news broke last night, many fans and people throughout the country are reacting to the Washington Wizards All-Star, John Wall now becoming a Houston Rocket. For those in the DMV, John Wall meant more to the community than his stats on the court. He was always a part of the city and will always be.
The love DC had for John Wall far exceeded any that he received on a national NBA level Not many stars embrace a place, connect with it & represent it the way he did. He didn't win a championship in his 10 years but he won over hearts. This breakup will be hard for many to accept

Wall meet with his teammates today to say goodbye and take a last lap around the DC facilities he has known well for the last 10 years. He also shared a message to the DMV fans via his social media saying in part; “I may not wear the jersey anymore but I will never forget what it meant to represent for ya’ll”
