The Roasting of John Wall
The Washington Wizards star looks like he's been, uh, enjoying his summer vacation.
NBA summer chatter is in full effect. Kevin Durant has nothing better to do than shit on C.J.

Well, it's unclear what kind of vacations John Wall has been on, but looks like it's been either rough...or absolutely fantastic. And NBA summer chatter certainly wasn't going to let it go.
Here's a screenshot of a tweet that the Wizards posted earlier today—of John Wall ready for USA Basketball camp in Vegas this week. The reason I say "screenshot" is because the photo was getting clowned on so hard on Twitter, that the organization had to take it down. Just check it out:
Yeah, you might be able to understand why. Dude looks like he's... um...let's go with living his best life, shall we? In fact, the NBA Twitter account took videos of several other players getting their portraits taken, and John Wall is conspicuously absent. NBA seemingly had the tact not to do him like this.

So John Wall finally got to weigh in on the matter and told his mom how he felt about the whole ordeal:
