Wizards’ John Wall blasts referees: ‘I have no respect for them’
The Wizards lost by a final score of 123-98. John Wall finished the game with 11 points in 25 minutes while shooting a woeful 4-of-15 from the field. Wall said postgame that the referees aren’t giving him any calls.
Wizards got blasted in Philly but John Wall spent most of his postgame availability complaining about the referees: "I have no respect for them. Simple as that." Said he's been in league 9 years & still can't get any calls.

As we all know, the Wizards are a walking disaster right now. Washington is 8-14 on the season and doesn’t look like a team in any fashion. They have one of the worst defenses in the NBA, and Dwight Howard is going to be out for months following surgery.
John Wall is one of the leaders of this team. He can’t be complaining about lack of foul calls when the team just lost by 25 points. It shows to the other players that he just cares about his numbers and nothing else. The lack of foul calls is not the reason the Wizards lost by 25 points.
There are reports that the Wizards aren’t opposed to trading Wall or shooting guard Bradley Beal should a good deal come to the table. Trading Wall is nearly impossible because of the money he is owed over the next couple of years, though.
