The Celtics are going to get swept by the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals if they win tonight in Game 7 against the Wizards. That shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone in basketball.
That's why all the pressure rests squarely on the shoulders of John Wall tonight in Boston. The entire narrative surrounding his desire to be a superstar in the league really comes down to how he performs in his first massive test in the NBA Playoffs tonight. Game 7's are not about talent, they are about maturity and dictating the tempo of the game. Wall will be able to prove to everyone just how amazing he is with a performance for the ages tonight.
Colin Cowherd is ready to walk back a lot of his criticism of John Wall with a breakout performance tonight when it really matters. Listen below.
You can hear The Herd with Colin Cowherd every weekday from 12-3 pm est. on Fox Sports Radio.
