Well, at least he has a sense of humor about it.
The NBA finally got around to releasing the All-Defensive teams on Monday, and it provided former Kentucky star John Wall with a laugh, apparently.
Aided in part by his strong defense, Wall burst on to the scene this year, earning third team All-NBA honors.
But as the league announced its first and second teams of top defenders, the Washington Wizards star was nowhere to be found.
He reacted with a snarky laugh.

Wall was second in the NBA this season with 2.01 steals per game and was regarded by advanced metrics as one of the league’s best defensive guards.
The first-team guards were Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, who missed 21 games this season but still made his ninth All-Defensive team, and Houston’s Patrick Beverly. The other first-teamers were Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio, Draymond Green of Golden State and Rudy Gobert of Utah.
Tony Allen of Memphis, Andre Roberson of Oklahoma City, Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee, Anthony Davis of New Orleans and Danny Green of San Antonio made the second team.
