John Wall believes the Washington Wizards are ready to join the ranks of the Eastern Conference elite now that LeBron James is playing with the Los Angeles Lakers

Speaking to Yahoo Sports’ Michael Lee, the Wizards’ All-Star point guard explained why his team should be included in the same category as the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers:

“I feel like we’re all equal. None of them won a championship. This is no knock on no other team. Don’t get me wrong. Boston is a hell of a team. Philly has great young talent with those guys [Joel] Embiid, [Ben] Simmons. And Toronto, losing DeMar [DeRozan], they still get Kawhi [Leonard]. Y’all might have been to the Eastern Conference finals, where we haven’t been to, but none of y’all were going to the Finals. It was one guy going to the Finals. Ain’t nobody separated from nothing. I know one guy that separated himself from the Eastern Conference every year and that was LeBron James and the Cavs. Other than that … if you lose in the second round, or the conference finals, you still didn’t get to your ultimate goal.”
