Since being drafted by the perennially underachieving Washington Wizards with the first overall pick of the 2010 NBA draft, hopes have been high that former Kentucky Wildcat John Wall can become one of the league's elite point guards.

Although his career has often been interrupted due to frustrating injury struggles, there is no doubt that he is finally well on his way to doing just that after making a hugely impressive start to the 2013/14 season.

The Wizards themselves have been somewhat underwhelming so far, doing little to prove that they are capable of making a deep run into the post-season with a thoroughly medicore 6-8 record.

23-year-old Wall has done his very best for Randy Wittman's club, however, orchestrating their offence wonderfully and averaging 19.5 points per game to go with an impressive tally of 9 assists per game.

On Tuesday night, Wall offered an incredible glimpse into the full extent of his wonderful technique and athleticism with a quite spectacular 360º slam dunk during the Wizards' morale-boosting 116-111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Verizon Center.

With his team down 42-41 with seven minutes remaining before the half, Wall expertly picked off a pass intended for Jordan Farmar and sped away on a fast break that he capped with the magnificent jam.
