John Wall has experienced huge success since entering the NBA back in 2010. Now the five-time all-star is setting up for his plans post the NBA.
During All-Star weekend, he shared his plans to return to college over the summer.
According to The Washington Post, Wall talked about to returning to the University of Kentucky to complete his bachelor’s degree.
He said, “I’m going back to school this summer to get my business degree. That’s what I’m focusing on. I promised my dad that.”
Wall’s father passed when he was 8-years-old, and in 2010 Wall left the University of Kentucky and was drafted by the Washington Wizards as the number one overall draft pick.
The 27-year-old admits he does not know exactly what he’ll do with the degree but understands the importance of having something outside of basketball.
“When our career is over, when we retire and the basketball stops bouncing, we still have to find something else to do,” said Wall.
“Whether you want to be a general manager, a doctor, a businessman, whatever, you have to believe on everything you stand on. We’re more than athletes and the stuff that’s going on in our society and in this world; we have to speak on it,” he said. “I think we have the right to say whatever we want.”
