A few takeaways from the video in case it was too long for you:
Cole Anthony has the full endorsement of John Wall
Cole Anthony, son of NCAA champion and Knicks 1st round pick, Greg Anthony – has received offers from Duke, Gtown, Kansas, UK, Louisville, UCLA, UNC, and Villanova. According to ESPN, Anthony is the #1 Class of 2019 PG and a future NBA Draft lottery pick. He is scouted as a modern day PG, an explosive athlete who can score from anywhere. The NY native will spend his senior year at Oak Hill Academy. (Notable Oak Hill Academy alums include Carmelo Anthony, Michael Beasley, Rondo, Harry Giles, and some guy who goes by KD.). The senior Anthony said that Cole is planning on announcing his commitment as late as possible.

John wears gloves to lift weights
This is maybe the second worst thing you can do in a weight room behind curling in the squat rack. And normally, I’d be totally against this, however, wearing gloves prevents calluses.

Keef Morris Sighting!
Markieff Morris makes a cameo at the 6:37 mark in the Ballislife video. Or is it Marcus? That isn’t for me to try to decide, nor is it for you.
John Wall gave away 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies
For the past 5 years, The John Wall Family Foundation has hosted an annual BackPack Giveaway. This year John and the Foundation gave away 1,000(!!!) backpacks and took photos with school kids in the Southeast D.C. area. John has always made it a point to give back to the community, both in D.C. and his hometown of Raleigh, NC. That not only includes these giveaway events, but also serving as a mentor to AAU players and being a huge supporter of Bright Beginnings, a non-profit in D.C. that assists homeless children under 5 years of age get an education.
