Freshman point guard John Wall wasn't your ordinary one-and-done player. He was one of the all-time greats, according to Rivals.com.
College basketball staff writer Steve Megargee compiled the all-decade team for the one-year players in the 2000s, selecting Wall to a five-man list of some of the all-time greats.Wall, who declared for the NBA Draft last week, was chosen alongside Texas' Kevin Durant, Kansas State's Michael Beasley, Syracuse's Carmelo Anthony and Ohio State's Greg Oden.
Just to make the team, Wall had to beat out players like Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins.
Wall averaged 16.6 points and a league-best 6.5 assists per game in his first (and likely only) season as a Wildcat. In leading UK to a 35-3 recrod and the East Regional final, Wall was awarded the Adolph Rupp Trophy, given annually to the nation's top player.
