Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall hasn’t played a game since December 2018, but while he’s been sidelined with heel and Achilles injuries he’s become an even more impactful leader in the NBA and in his D.C. and Raleigh, N.C. communities. On this episode of “The Tuff Juice Podcast,” John talks with Caron Butler about his efforts to help during the Covid-19 pandemic, including his 202 Assist program to provide rent relief for Ward 8 residents, activism in the NBA and the importance of giving time as well as money, his experience participating in a Black Lives Matter march, why he wouldn’t play in the Orlando bubble even if he could, what fans can expect from him when he returns to play next season, and why he’s back in school. This is powerful stuff you do not want to miss!
