John Wall is not happy with the officiating that happened during their game on Sunday.
Following his team’s loss to the Utah Jazz, the Washington Wizards point guard blasted the referees for the lack of calls he and his teammates got. He did not hold back in speaking his mind and even went as far as saying some “no name” players where getting calls in their favor despite minimal contact made against them.
John Wall "it is frustrating you keep attacking the basket and no name guys on the other end are getting calls on little contact."

The 26-year-old Kentucky product may have felt that the disparity in the number of free throw attempts in the game was enough for him to rest his case. The Jazz took a total of 32 free throws, converting 23, while the Wizards only shot 13 times, making 10 of them.
Wall’s claim can be backed up by the numbers in the box score, however, their poor shooting from the field did not help their cause as well as they finished the game with only a 42.5 percent clip.
With his very strong statement, it can be expected that the league office will not take it lightly and he might be fined for it. The NBA has been consistent in defending their game officials, which lessens the chance of Wall getting away with his rant without getting reprimanded.
