NBA All-Star John Wall Is Selling His High-End Wardrobe For Charity

by MR Magazine Staff

John Wall is a very good basketball player. He was the Wizards’ first overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft and has since become one of the preeminent members of the team and a three-time All-Star. Some guys—hell, a lot of guys—would be OK with that narrative alone. But Wall isn’t just a basketball player. He’s also deeply involved with his community in both his current home of Washington, D.C., and his native Raleigh, North Carolina. The 25-year-old point guard just won the 2016 Seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist Award for his efforts. And today, he’s partnering up with high-end online consignment shop The RealReal to sell a portion of his wardrobe—think Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Zegna—to benefit his own organization, the John Wall Family Foundation. He told Esquire what it’s like to lead an NBA team as a teenager, what he thinks about fashion, and why he’s so set on giving back to those around him. Read more at Esquire.
